Ashraf - König

Ashraf König is a Syrian food cart lining the long row of Middle Eastern produce vendors of Brunnenmarkt, in Vienna’s District 16. I have two favorites here. First, the fattouh – a bowl of chickpeas, mixed together with hummus, tahini, cashew nuts, coriander, and za'atar. Second, the moutabal, which is a smoky and creamy eggplant spread sprinkled with pomegranate seeds and coated in olive oil and tahini. Note that most dishes are vegetarian and that portions could be bigger.

To remain unbiased, I visit all places incognito and pay for my own meals and drinks. If you're enjoying this article, please consider supporting me by making a one-time payment (PayPal, Venmo).
