Heuriger Leitner is the home to Vienna’s finest Stelzen (pork knuckles). Yes, it’s better than the Schweizerhaus. Much better. It’s so good, that I am half afraid writing this, fearing that next time I won’t be able to find a spare table in this tiny, but hugely popular among the locals place.

Hopefully, through this review I might manage to at least keep the Brettljause seekers away, because Leitner’s Brettljause is really nothing special. Not that I expected it to be, as Leiner does not produce anything except some great wine. The best part of the plate (no Brettl was provided) was, of course, the Schweinsbraten. The Stelze expertise pays off, and the Braten had just a perfect taste and a wonderfully crunchy crust.

The rest of the Jause was of standard supermarket quality, though probably cut from larger pieces rather than taken pre-cut out of plastic. With nothing particularly good or bad to say about the ingredients, I’ll just list them here, for completeness sake: Geselchtes, Bergsteiger-like salami, ham, Extrawurst, pork jelly, Verhackertes spread, cheese, horseradish. The small salad I ordered as a side dish was a good idea, as it compensated for the lack of any pickles.

Having enjoyed Heuriger Leitner’s Stelze on a number of occasions, I simply had to try their Kalte Platte at least once. Well, once was totally enough.
