Vienna’s historic Naschmarkt today is an enormous Turkish and Middle-Eastern produce market, popular among both tourists and locals. Over time, some of the vendor stands have transformed into chic restaurants, such as Neni, one of the institutions here (they’ve since expanded to places like Berlin, Paris, and Amsterdam). Opened in 2009 and owned by an Israeli-Austrian family, the tasty breakfast dishes are inspired by the Middle East – shakshuka, “Israeli breakfast,” but there’s of course avocado toast, too, with smoked salmon. Dishes range in price from €10 to €15. Try to book ahead, else you might be exiled to the cramped upstairs tables with no views.
