Thanks to Pepi, you can get this premium quality street food in Vienna. Before only being located in Linz, their branch finally reached the capital in 2015. Since then they have opened more shops, at the airport and the main train station. You can eat your Leberkäs on a plate or to go.
While I have become vegan, I still want to share the Austrian specialty with you. Wohooo – guess what! They’ve recently introduced the plant-based version, and it is yummy! Every carnivore (and now vegans, too 🙂 should have a bite of it, coming to the land of Schnitzel!
It is hard to describe what it is and what’s in it. However, it is not cheese and not liver. You can get a warm “Leberkässemmel” at almost every supermarket in the country, yet their versions can’t keep up with high-quality Leberkäs like Pepi’s. Check out his version of this “meatloaf” in a Semmel when in Vienna (or Linz;)!
For frequent visitors, there’s a member card with discounts. The price depends on the size of your Leberkäs piece. Usually, they cut slices quite bounteously – if you prefer a thin one, inform the staff upon ordering.
My favorite was the spicy chili in a Mohnweckerl, but if you go for the first time, maybe start with their classic. Muslim buyers like the turkey hen and the adventurous decide on the horse. Their meat-friendly customers range from little boys to grannies, and there’s a favorite for everyone. Come and pick yours!
