The long row of Middle Eastern produce vendors in Brunnenmarkt terminates at an excellent food cart: Irakisch Kass. Tasty beef shawarma and veggie-packed falafel sandwiches are the name of the game, at friendly price points. You can combine a visit not only with the market, but the outdoor bars along the neighboring Yppenplatz. It’s the hangout of Viennese alternative types who've been priced out of the city center or turn up their noses at downtown's bourgeoisie.
