Let’s talk about the swine.
Reminders of the primacy of sausage in Austria are frequently encountered:
-The odor of sausage sandwiches on the bus to Venedig
-The incredible varieties of sausage in every store and every booth at every farmer’s market
-GIANT(and tasty) 5€ lunches of swine, potatoes, and salad at the university restaurant
The other day, I was in the center city of Villach and ordered a bratwurst at a stand by the river. Because…Austria.
Perhaps I was expecting bread to fit the brats? Silly. No utensils were present, so I watched the man next to me to see what he did with his order. No forks, no knives, no problem!
It wasn’t bad, but I do think I’ve had enough sausage for a while! I’ll stick to the caffeinated sweets!
Haha evidently this was incorrect, since not only did I have a sandwich with salami for lunch, but I also made these little rotbratwursts this very day!
