Fitneßsalat Salatplatte mit Hühnerfiletstreifen – Fitness Salad Plate with Chicken Strips

Klostergasthof. A-6134 Fiecht · Fiecht 5

Austrian cuisine has a notorious reputation for being on the heavy side – Schnitzel, Spätzle, Kaiserschmarren, Tafelspitz, Schweinebraten roasted pork, etc… So it is easy for uninformed people to have this image branded in their mind and conclude that Austrian cuisine is full of fatty and filling dishes. On the contrary! In fact, there are a burgeoning number of health conscious Austrians that eat smart and healthy. Supermarkets promote a large array of organic fruits and vegetables that make eating right accessible. Restaurants also follow suit – salads are always included on the menu. One notable dish often found on Austrian menus is the so-called ‘Fitness Salad,’ a salad plate featuring a variety of greens topped with grilled chicken strips. Continue reading

McDonald’s CBO Chicken Bacon Onion

McDonald‘s. A-6130 Vomp · Industriestrasse 7

Abbreviations and acronyms have no place on restaurant menus. Call me boring, but I dislike having to guess what I’m ordering especially when the stomach is growling. McDonald’s recently rolled out a CBO sandwich as part of its Euro 2012 ‘Fan Kost’ promotion. But what does CBO exactly stand for? Cabbage, bratwurst, olives? Corn, beef, okra? Actually it’s something a lot simpler – chicken, bacon, and onion. Continue reading
