During the second leg of our 9-hour journey from Lucerne to Vienna, I got hungry. I wanted more than peanuts and raisins for dinner, people. Dinner cannot be the same as lunch. Then Matt got a really yummy-looking sandwich. COME ON.
OBB is the part of the Eurail system based out of Austria. It travels to several central-ish European countries, as well. When riding with your eyeballs glued to the windows, you will want to burst out in song. By song, I mean the Sound of Music. Don't do it, you weirdo American. God, who does that? (Certainly not I. Do not confirm with Matt.)
Just out of Salzburg, I shimmied into the bistro car. The menu was clearly marked with little green Vs denoting the vegetarian options, of which there were a few. I got a lovely pasta with tomato ragout and fresh rocket without parmesan for €6,90 ($9.09). (Rocket's similar to arugula, for those of you thinking I sprinkle my food with space shuttles.)
Friends: it was good. Like, really. I know it was just a frozen dinner they threw in the microwave, but still. The rocket really was fresh. The sauce had a hint of spicyness, and the whole thing was just exactly what I needed.
Vienna: bring it.
