HAve I made it clear that I like the food here?
Earlier, I had lunch at the Hotel Sacher, which is a fancy hotel in Vienna by the Opera House
The stars of the sitting were our main courses, I had Milchkalb, which is milk fed veal. This the classic unweaned and raised indoors baby cow. Not only was it soft and delicious but so incredibly pale you would think it was pork. Mum had a saddle of baby deer which was the softest finest grained red meat I have ever tasted. There were barely any vegetables to speak of, but who cares?
Dessert. We had a plate of assorted chocolate petit fours for dessert and because it’s asparagus season here I had a sorbet to compliment the rich chocolate. Yes, that’s right; asparagus and absinthe sorbet. It was weird, but grew on me with each spoonful. Not too cold and just ever so slightly crunchy. With the bill came a three tier plate of more chocolates.
