One of the few restaurants in the city offering authentic Austrian cuisine, Kipferl in Islington's cute Camden Passage may look like a cake shop - Kipferl is the Austrian version of a croissant but is much lighter - but they serve an impressive choice of sausages as well as sachertorte, apfelstrudel and the like - the pastries you find in a Viennese patisserie. Writing in The Sunday Telegraph Zoe Williams announced the double-frankfurter with sauerkraut was the "tastiest I've ever had in this country". And there's a whole page dedicated to German sausages to choose from including the kasekrainer - a 'bratwurst' filled with bits of cheese. Further choices range from starters of smoked trout on toasted rye bread with cranberry horseradish to mains of spinach dumplings and beef goulash as well as the traditional wiener schnitzel (veal). The deli sells imported delicacies like pumpkin seed oil ('Kernoel') , Zotter chocolates and Austrian wines. If you can't make it to Islington Kipferl also run parkcafes in Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, open daily 10am to 4pm, and Coram's Fields (re-open Spring 2012, telephone 079 6652 4174) where they offer Viennese coffees, cakes, light lunches and sandwiches in the same vein.
