Alpengasthof Loas. A-6136 Pill · Loasweg 9

The menu at Alpengasthof Loas easily fits on a single page, but it’s the Wiener schnitzel here that’s legendary – both in size and taste. Accompanied with pan-fried potatoes, a small side salad and a single lemon wedge, the enormous schnitzel teeters off the edge of the white plate.

Though customarily made of veal, Wiener schnitzel is also prepared using other meats such as pork, chicken, and turkey (though, by law, a menu item offering ‘Wiener Schnitzel’ must contain veal; if it contains pork, it will say ‘Wienerschnitzel vom Schwein’ as it does here).
