Lugeck Figlmüller Vienna

A few weeks ago,  I was invited to a lovely event at Figlmüller’s newest restaurant Lugeck. Figlmüller is most famous for its Wiener Schnitzel. If you are coming to Vienna, a visit is definitely a must. Their newest addition, Lugeck offers Austrian cuisine in a modern ambience. It is a revival of the Viennese pub culture (“Wirtshauskultur”), serving traditional Austrian dishes with a modern twist.  A few bloggers and I were able to take a peek inside the kitchen and see how beef tartar and poppyseed dumplings with a white chocolate and jam center were prepared. I love looking over the shoulders of the pros. There always are some useful tips and tricks to pick up, that make cooking at home a lot easier!

All tables have a checkered tabletop instead of the original checkered tablecloths. The traditional pub color green is also integrated in the decor, reinterpreted  in a lighter and softer green color throughout the restaurant.

I’m not a fan of raw meat but it was beautifully presented and looked really good.  lugeck figlmueller beef tartar Since I am more into sweets, I was impressed how they made the “Topfenknödel” (sweet quark cheese dumplings). They used an ice-cream scoop to portion the dumplings, and this is such a great idea! And makes forming them so much easier, which is always such a messy thing. lugeck figlmueller mohn topfenknödel After the “work”, it was time for the taste test!

Lugeck serves their own range of organic fizzy pops. I tried the one with hay, which funnily enough really tasted like hay but in a good, refreshing way! lugeck figlmüller herr frischend For the main course, I ordered a steak sandwich in a potato bun with red cabbage salad, which was amazing! Pink, juicy meat between a brioche-like bun on a perfectly dressed salad.  lugeck figlmueller beiried sandwich For dessert, we got to taste the finished poppyseed dumplings filled with a white chocolate and jam center. An eye-catching dessert that tasted delicious! lugeck figlmueller mohn topfenknödel lugeck figlmüller My highlight of the menu was definitely the steak sandwich. I even came back the next week to have it again! ;)

If you want to experience Austrian cuisine in a modern setting, I really recommend Lugeck, which is also conveniently located in the city center.
