Plachutta (heaven in the pot)

Meeting American friends near Monument of Russian Soldier

sunny 35 °C

What a surprise!
We met friends from States in Vienna's streets. Just as funny as it sounds, we didn't meet over 20 years, ocasionally keeping in touch on net, but not really planned anything together. And here they are, taking photos near monument of Russian Soldier and watching scateboarders at the platz near fontain.
Actually, this is a school-friend of A's brother, but A knows him for whole childhood.
They were going to dinner in Plachutta (too famous and expencive for us), bt we joined them and had lovely time together.
After a meal, which was really delicious, we had a walk in the center, showing to them our favorite places.

Very popular, mentioned in every tourist guide, Plachutta symbolises all the best of typical Viennese cuisine. Definately it's a brand, but even being SO famous they are not spoiled. They keep exceptional cooking and perfect service.

Tenderest veal (who grew up in the alpine meadows, as stated in the menu), immersed in a fragrant broth, is fabulously delicious. The meat served in a gleaming copper pans /to keep it warm/; the waiter pours extra portions when you finished. Creamy spinach was emerald green and incredibly delicious, apple horseradish surpassed all expectations ... and foie gras, covered by a thin crust of transparent jelly ... was appropriate poetry or violin playing, but definately not eating of this masterpiece.

About the brain bone, from which the waiter took out the the gentlest content and carefully laid it out on toasted rye bread ... I would better shut up.
