Mutzenbacher is a nice Austrian restaurant in Friedrichshain, between Revaler and Simon Dach Strasse. They advertise “Schnitzel Puff”, which means “Schnitzel Brothel”, poor Schnitzels,… 😉
The place is a mix of traditional Austrian and modern Berlin, a disco ball like Pork head on the wall, waitress in Dirdnl, lounge music, wooden tables,…
Fun thing, I had a reservation, on the table was a beer pint with written Servus (Austrian/Bavarian for Hi) and my name, along with some hearts.
The menu is written in Austrian dialect, the friendly staff will translate it for you if you ask nicely. The service was indeed great. The food as well, everybody was satisfied. I had a very tasty Wiener Schnitzel from calf, well thin, enormous, with a potatoe salad. For dessert, I tried the Germknödel, this kind of steam cooked sweet dumpling. What I did not know was that it had a jam filling, and I don’t like jam, but the non jammy part was nice.
The prices are really fair, the atmosphere cosy, really a nice spot for an Austrian dinner!
