Alone with a Brettl

Location:Eischers Kronenstüberl

Status:Open (last checked on 23 January 2016)
Eaten:„Brett’ljause,“, two ¼ Weißer Burgunder

This Brettljause was served to me by the chairman of the Austrian Freedom Party of the 19th Viennese district, who is also the owner of this Heuriger (unless he has a twin brother). Once he brought me the dish and left, it was only a badly drawn portrait of him that was keeping me company; the tavern was totally empty. I doubt that had any political background, however: more likely, people were either busy doing their Saturday shopping or were hiding at home from the heavy snowfall.

Eischer’s smallish Brettljause was a strange mix of very good and very pointless. The salty Verhackertes was amazing, and together with a very fresh and also slightly salty bread roll fully justified the visit. The Surbraten were tasty but too thinly cut, so what looked like quite a lot of food disappeared in minutes. The Swiss cheese (well, maybe it was not actually Swiss, but it did have holes) was OK, though two meager slices could not leave a strong impression. On the other hand, the Extrawurst looked like a lazy addition, and the salami was too dry and with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. One slice of it actually had a hole in the middle, making me wonder if it had originally contained something I should not see.

The Brettljause was also spartan decoration-wise, with tomato slices and cocktail onions not really adding much. It was not hopeless – the Verhackertes have saved the day – but it could have been much better with just a couple of extra ingredients. Taking into account the Heuriger’s tourist location, I was actually planning to give Eischer’s Jause an average score, but at the end recalled the smell of old oil that was present in the room. I hate that smell so much that it eventually shifted the balance.
