Austrian food weiner schnitzel
Veal schnitzel, otherwise known as weiner schnitzel, is a popular Austrian dish.

To the naked eye — or more so palate in this case — German and Austrian cuisine are interchangeable, mainly because Austrian cuisine was so heavily influenced by the Germans, as well as other neighbouring countries including Hungary and Italy. But depending on which part of Austria, the flavour can differ from region to region. For example, Austria’s capital city Vienna has its own cuisine known as Viennese that is highly dependent on meat; while in the southern most state of Austria in Carinthia, there is an abundance of fish, grain, and dairy in their cooking.
