Balkan Grill

since 1950

A unique sausage speciality set out from Salzburg on a culinary victory march that eventually led to it becoming an Austrian classic – though its origins are actually Bulgarian: the “Bosna”, a type of hot dog consisting of grilled pork bratwurst, onions, fresh parsley and a secret blend of spices, served between two slices of white bread.

The origin of the snack is an urban legend. Obviously, it was invented by the Bulgarian Zanko Todoroff in 1949. In 1950, he passed the small window shop to the Exners who owned it until 1976. Since then, this exquisite culinary gem has been run by the Walters, a family of butchers. Today, the shop, located in a building with a thoroughfare from the Getreidegasse to the “Horse Pond”, has developed a cult following.

Austria’s “Gastronomic Pope”, Christoph Wagner, isn’t the only person to rave about this place. The customers represent a colorful mixture, while enthusiastic recommendations for the Balkan Grill published in Far-Eastern travel guides, guarantee a busy influx of international visitors.

PRODUCT RANGE: Various servings of Bosna sausages (original: onions, parsley, spices or onions, ketchup, spices or mustard, spices etc.)
