Vendors from Austria, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, and Slovenia motored into the plaza for the weekend event. Lots of retro and vintage food “trucks” with a fair variety of offerings. Intrigued by the notion of a vegan, “American” style hot dog from Jenonne upon entering the festival, we decided on a taste test.
The look on Tony’s face sums up our reaction to the faux hot dog. We’re omnivores, and always open to food that tastes good be it animal, vegetable or mineral. This was not food that tasted good. And, why is it that vegans are always attempting to make over real food? Could it be that vegan food is just not that good?
The famous grilled brats in a pretzel roll and topped with mango curry mustard. Sehr, sehr, gut.
He’s still not quite over that vegan dog, though the Ottakringer was helping.
The aroma of grilled meats and curried this and that blended nicely with the folk artists.
If there was a food theme, American hot dogs and hamburgers would have taken the prize.
What did we decide upon for our main snack? I went with the chicken burrito from Mucho Gusto, a truck out of Salzburg. Muy delicioso! Tony kept the sausage theme going with a New York Coney dog from Mel’s 50s-style Rolling Diner, also from Salzburg.
We freely admit we’re terrible with selfies.
We shared the two perfect cannolis, slightly sweetened with rose water and candied oranges. Italian sweets from Hungary, who knew? Though, they do share the same flag colors…
