A few days before I depart for my holidays, I got to visit this Italian restaurant, called Xpedit, which is in the first district of Vienna, close to Schwedenplatz. While I was there, chatting with a dear friend of mine, I was thinking “hey this must be one of those local restaurants that all tourists are looking for”.

Do you know how many emails I get from people who are visiting Vienna, trying to find non touristic places to go and to eat? They all want to do something that is not considered touristic. So this restaurant is exactly the one. Off the beaten path and highly recommended.

We loved the food, and by saying that, I mean, we literally loved the food. We sat outside and spent about two hours. But then we had to leave because my friend had to get back to her work. But before that, we enjoyed everything on the table: insalata caprese with mozzarella di bufala, delicious risotto and yummy panna cotta.

My favourite dessert

My favourite dessert

It’s official. My blog has its own dessert. Actually this dessert had no name before so I decided to call it: the Viennese girl’s dessert. Forget about Sacher torte, cheesecake, tiramisu and apple strudel. If you are looking for a summer-like dessert, don’t look any further. I have done it many times at home: it’s simple, quick, it gives you that perfect summer feeling and everybody likes how it tastes. What else do you need?

You need Greek Yogurt, lemon peel, digestive biscuits and condensed milk. First buy the ingredients, mix the yogurt with the condensed milk and the lemon peels in a bowl and you need some ice cream glasses to serve it. At the bottom of the glass, you put the biscuit crumbs.

If you make the Viennese girl’s dessert, let me know and send me some photos. That would be fantastic!
