Vienna’s historic Naschmarkt today is an enormous Turkish and Middle-Eastern produce market most popular among tourists. Over time, some of the vendor stands have transformed into chic restaurants, such as Neni, which is one of the institutions here (the Neni brand has since expanded to places like Berlin, Paris, and Amsterdam).

Opened in 2009 and owned by an Israeli-Austrian family, the breakfast dishes are inspired by the Middle East – shakshuka, “Israeli breakfast,” and there’s of course avocado toast with smoked salmon. Try to book ahead, else you might be exiled to the cramped upstairs tables with no views.

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).
