Zum schwarzen Schaf – Devouring the rejected

What might sound like the synopsis of another episode from The walking dead actually is an accurate description of what is awaiting you within one of the 9th district’s pearls: Zum schwarzen Schaf.

This black sheep came up with a brilliant idea: weirdly shaped or out-of-the-norm vegetables that, as a consequence of their appearance, would not be sold in local supermarkets, are processed and served in this very spot. But: if I wouldn’t be telling you, you wouldn’t have guessed – their food looks, smells and tastes super good.

Zum schwarzen Schaf is simply put a wickedly good spot for lunch. Every midday (from Mon – Fri) they serve two savoury meals, one of them includes meat. You’ll find the current offers online. Part of their lunch items come in Weck-jars put on extra colourful plates. All in all the food arrangement might bring one or another Oh!-moment to your lunch break and will make you enjoy it even more.

When it’s getting dark and Alsergrund’s wolves are howling this spot turns into a smooth bar that, apart from homemade lemonade, iced tea and a casual variety of wine and beer, serves Mezze and Tapas – potentially spoiling your taste buds and, most importantly, teaching us that black sheep sometimes are just the ones worth searching for.
