When I had first seen this new snack shop about a year ago I was like “Oooooooh!” I’d always thought it was a pity you could only get delicious Leberkäse in Linz, which is about 180km to the west. So I put it on top of my to-do-list to check out their version of this “meat loaf” in a Semmel. Since my second visit to Leberkäswilli I am no longer sad about not living in Linz because Vienna finally has its very own Leberkäs king. Yes, I just crowned Willi.
It’s actually hard to describe what it is, and what’s in it, however it’s not cheese (even though the name says so) and probably also not liver but other sausage content you can find in other sausages. It’s best to go there and have a try! Just a guess: you’ll probably fall in love.
Interesting fact, they buy their many sorts of Leberkäse from different butchers all over Austria and the Munich one even from across the border. My personal favorite is the chili one. If you couldn’t handle hot well I would recommend chili with cheese as that abates some of the heat.
I was told women’s “most wanted” is the mozzarella & tomato Leberkäs, while Muslim buyers love the turkey hen kind, since this one is without pork and traditional Austrians go with the horse type. Their customers really range from little boys to grannies and there’s a favorite for everyone. Come and pick yours!
