Zum Schwarzen Kameel

    Just around the corner from the Graben lies one of Vienna's most renowned delicatessen-cum-restaurants, Zum Schwarzen Kameel. Opened in 1618 by Johan Baptist Cameel, this culinary landmark began as a specialty store for exotic foods and spices. The establishment evolved over time; after a tavern was added, Joseph Stiebitz's takeover in 1818 saw the building of an extensive wine-cellar. Not long thereafter, Zum Schwarzen Kameel was named the official spice supplier to the royal court. This distinction was supplemented by a long list of celebrity regulars including Ludwig van Beethoven. The last major renovation took place in 1901, when the interior was given the Jugendstil makeover which is still prominently on display. The shop has its own product line with an impressive array of spreads, truffle and olive oils, sekt and champagne, meats, cheeses, confectionaries and a whole lot more. Undisputed star of the show however is the "Beinschinken" (bone-in ham), several mouth-watering kilos of which is hand-carved every day for Zum Schwarzen Kameel's smartly dressed clientele.
