Birthday at WIENER KAFFEEHAUS

What better way to celebrate Fio and my birthday, but to dine at "WIENER KAFFEEHAUS"! I have earlier visit the WIENER KAFFEEHAUS (Viennese Coffeehouse) and tried their Cordon Blue and Melange. Read about it here. It has always a regular practise for us, the gang from University of Melbourne, to gather for someone's birthday. For example, we celebrated Jason's and Jane's. Other than for birthdays, we also meet up quite often for 'pig-out sessions'.
This time, we are celebrating Fio and mine at WIENER KAFFEEHAUS. Here are some of the pictures of last evening.
More pictures area available here.

The Food of the Evening
Wiener Schnitzel
Jane had the Wiener Schnitzel. It is rather similar to the Cordon Blue that I had earlier, except without the ham and cheese embedded among the thin slice of chicken or pork fillet.

Cordon Blue
Jason had the Cordon Blue, I did not snap any pictures of it, but reposted from the one I had.

Bratwurst with sauerkraut
Sze Wai had the veal sausage while Shufen had the pork sausage. The bratwurst comes with some brown sauce drizzled over it, served alongside sauerkraut and baked potatoes.

Wiener saft Goulasch
Fio and Bernard had the Goulasch. The Goulasch is actually a Hungarian style beef stew, served with a dumpling, runny 'sunny-side-up' fried egg and an 'octopus-like' looking frankfurter. The stew is fantastic and goes perfectly well with the soft tender beef.

Roast Pork with sauerkraut
Inn Chiau and myself had the roast pork with sauerkraut. I had initially thought that it is served as a complete roast pork knuckle, but I only realised that it comes in three thick slices. The roast pork is served alongside sauerkraut and mashed potato in a light sauce.

Time for the Sweet Desserts
Sachertorte & Wiener Apfel Strudel
We must definitely try the two famous Viennese desserts!


Coffee Caffeine Coffee Liqueur Coffee!
We had different type of coffee, Inn Chiau ordered the Einspanner, which we kept hearing as "Ice Milo" from the waitress with a strong Chinese accent. The two most interesting coffee we had were the Maria Theresia (left image) and Honey Affogato (right image). Maria Theresia is an espresso with orange liqueur with brandy. We unanimously agreed that it is very strong in alcohol! The Honey Affogato is espresso with a dollop of gelato served hot in a glass rimmed with honey, very much how Jason would love it!

Time for the prezzies!
The gang got us each a T-shirt from the popular Japanese designer, Design T-Shirts Store Graniph an ESPRIT voucher for us to share. Fio's t-shirt had many abstract drawings of funny faces and names, while mine is of a Koala who is a 'Fighting Bear'!



These GRANIPH designer T-shirts are really good stuff!
The quality is damn solid and not to brag the designs are really cool!



Thank you guys for the wonderful evening!
We love the company, the food and the presents!
