What is the first thing to do in a foreign city for a food aficionado? Searching for the first gourmet place in town. Sometimes pictures just explain more than words. Therefor enjoy my photographs from the last visit at Julius Meinl am Graben, the traditional house since 1862, when it comes to gourmet shopping.
And if you are not up for a shopping trip in the world of food, just grab a nice bottle of the wide selection of vitamin waters for your walk through the city.
Matching domestic with international choice is the name of the game at Julius Meinl and the symbol of the coffee drinking little guy with the red hat and black tassel, which symbolizes a coffeecup, will be found on every product, which is homemade in the house.
