Vienna Lux: Schnitzel!!

Tuesday, already!? Wow, did this weekend fly by!  In between spending time with my family in town, Mike and I also headed down to Calgary for a work event.  We had a great time with the gang, and I had to share with you a new discovery.


"Always hot and juicy", haha. No, we did not stop off at a strip club. Despite the rather suggestive name, Vienna Lux is a quaint little sandwich shop in downtown Calgary that serves wiener schnitzel sandwiches!! (seriously, who's in charge of their marketing here?)

I realize now that schnitzel isn't the most photogenic of foods. Our friend Scott said it looked like we picked something off the side of the road. But trust me, in person, it did not disappoint. Thin, crispy wiener schnitzel.  Sweet red cabbage.  Sauteed onions. The largest and freshest kaiser bun you can imagine. Oh and a pickle, don't forget the pickle. 

If you're ever in Calgary I highly recommend, and come hungry - these suckers are huge! Thanks to my foodie friend, Dajana for the tip!

Where o' where can I find me some schnitzel in Edmonton!??

  6. Oh man, that sounds amazing. I LOVE schnitzel. It's one of those foods I only eat once a year, though if I lived near this sandwich shop, that might change. . .

  16. It might not be the most photogenic menu or sandwich, but it sure sounds good!! Too bad Calgary is too far to travel for a sandwich.... ;-)
