Street Food: Seafood in Salzburg

Salzburg is a very artistic city. Everything here is named after its favorite son, Mozart: statues, banners, chocolates, t-shirts, buses and every lamp post! A stone’s throw from his birth place, we did find this eatery with nothing named Mozart.

The seafood arrayed here was sufficient to make any fish lover (Konkani) giddy with joy. And trust the Austrians to present the fish, surgically clean. Before you start to curse me, we did not try any of this – see, we had just finished a beautiful Austrian breakfast and were in no mood for seafood. But delicious no? (see more pics below).

Of course, we did have delicious soft serve ice cream. On a hot day, it melted faster than I could keep up!

Before you venture further, some related Streetfoods:

We did stop by the house where Mozart was born. But did not pay exorbitant fees to wander in. Do you know how many ice creams you can get for 8 euros?

  1. hmmm reminds me of my austria trip… vienna ….had so much mozart here and there… street music, monuments, souvenirs…. later we had a crazy drinking night in a village called Gompultzgerkin …austria in general is so musical and beautiful….

  2. Sush:
    All the food is cooked and delightful to all the senses.

    and regarding that background on the icecream pic, ha ha, had to plan it meticulously. 🙂
    and you are the first one to make the observation.

    Are you a PhD or sumthn? 🙂

  3. Fabulous photos and the description.
    You filled up my senses. For a moment, I felt I would literally gobble up the marinated stuff. Heh, is it cooked as well? !
    I noticed sumthn…guess what? The background in the ice cream looks absolutely cool. No, befitting. Lol.

  4. Krishnan: Great to hear from you. Yaa! Sound of Music is still fabulous the 100 th time.

    Good to hear of your trip to Quebec. Should take up your advise on the walled city. We visited Montreal a couple of years ago and had a blast! Yes, downtown was the place to stay.

    Good to hear the girls are doing well.

    and o yes, salzburg is where the family won the festival – but am not sure they actually filmed it here. There is actually a Sound of Music Tour where they take you to all the locations of the shootings! 🙂

  5. The pictures are amazing and Salzburg seems to be a nice place. Is that where the von Trapp family won the folk music festival ? We saw Sound of Music for the 100 th time this weekend thanks to my daughters. We went to Quebec City for the July 4 th weekend and enjoyed it a lot. Have you have been there, if not, I highly recommend it. Stay inside the walled city.

  6. oh I would love to have some fresh ice cream! mmmm…

    a bit off topic.. but i remember you took the kailash Manasarovar yatra? We (hubby, in-laws, and I) are considering to go for it. We are in the “collecting information” stage. Was curious to know which group you used. Any suggestions/recommendations you have? would greatly appreciate some feedback! You can email me since it’s off topic here smithiwithi at yahoo dot com

    Hi Smita: Kaliash Manasarovar was a fabulous trip! Will send you info by email.
    We are currently in Mumbai and travelling like crazy. 🙂

  7. Oy vey…so many pictures of seafood! *dies* I’ll be honest, though, I’ve never had lobster before!

    You got to visit (the outside of) Mozart’s house? That’s pretty cool! It would have been so convenient if some of these composers lived on this side of the Atlantic! I suppose it evens out in the end though. Austria has Mozart and Beethoven, we have…um…Elvis and Michael Jackson? :p

  8. Ohh look at that shrimp…i am feeling hungry now 😦

    arunaH uvacha:

    Ha Ha Shilpa! you are like me. I am either hungry, or eating, or napping after a full stomach, or planning to eat, or hungry …

    you get the idea?

  9. Bonos díes Arun 🙂
    and thank you for yet another beautiful photo essay 🙂 I have extened the deadline to 30th June on popular demand. so u still have got another week to torture us 😉

  10. Beautiful, love the Mozart’s birth place!:))

    arunaH uvacha:
    Thank you Asha! you’d love the place, you must visit 🙂
    perhaps after the Hawaii trip!
