Food trends used to come from gastronomic chefs and straight out of their kitchens, however, we see that it has changed over the past decades. A broad range of factors shapes the next big trend among food-lovers, be it ecological and health considerations, cultural globalization and localization or booming experience economy.
The times when food was only seen as means of survival are long gone for most of the world. People are increasingly interested in new cuisines and extraordinary experiences.
In this post, we highlight some places in Vienna that, in our opinion, represent big food trends. Vienna has a fantastic food scene and it was not easy to pick just a few. If you have your personal favorites that are not on this list, please do let us know!
The LaLa: https://www.the-lala.com
This freshly opened venue is located in the 7th district and spreads so much charm whilst passing by, that it’s almost impossible not to enter. Offering a refined variety of bowls and salads packed with nutrients as well as healthy sweets, this place is a must visit. And the most important thing? Everything is not only tasty, but also vegan!
Wiki Wiki Poke: https://www.wikiwikipoke.at
The name says it all: If you’re looking for some really fresh and tasty poke bowls, this is your place to go. Although „poke“ stands for raw and cubed fish in Hawaiian, you will also find meat and vegan options here. If you have some spare time you should definitely sit down on one of the swings, while enjoying your meal!
Mari’s Metcha Matcha: http://www.metchamatcha.at
Packed with antioxidants, fiber and vitamins, the hype surrounding matcha is truly justified. This green tea holds its roots in ancient Japan, which is why you will not only find drinks, but also traditional dishes like soba noodles and onigiris at this place.
Dinner in the dark: https://www.viersinne.at/wien/dinner-in-the-dark?
Challenging at least four of your five senses, this dining concept is probably something less common, which makes it worth a try. Whilst enjoying your meal in complete darkness, you will be served and taken care of by a blind staff- team.
Kikko Ba: https://www.kikko.at
Run by the owner of its older brother „Mochi “, Kikko Ba is highly colorful within its approach. Serving a mixed variety of Japanese, French and Spanish food, accompanied by high-quality sake, this place is as highly promising as it sounds.
