Junn Bar & Kitchen

This is the perfect place to meet friends and work colleges alike for some drinks or yummy food in a very stylish and hip restaurant. Even though it is located in the first district, the prices are fair and not too pricey.

Erwin and me decided to share a starter for two people. The starter contains six different yummy dishes for 12€, which is only 2€ per dish! Everything tasted as delicious as it looked and I was really surprised by how lovely the edamame tasted.

The cocktails they offer, not only sound cool, they have an Asian twist to it.
Even though the calpis cocktail sounds sweet, it is really strong so beware!

Food wise I went with a brown wheat bao which tasted nice even though it was quite hard to eat elegantly with everything dripping onto the plate. Not date-night approved ;)

The ramen Erwin had looked neat with lots of toppings but compared to Karma ramen you definitely could taste that the noodles weren’t home-made.

For desserts we decided on coconut mochi filled with peanut and sesame sauce with some fruit. Like most Asian restaurants they don’t have a huge selection on desserts.

I heard that the lunch offer is really great so I hope to return for that soon!

March – Restaurant discoveries

I noticed that I neglected my food posts and since I have accumulated already a number of pictures I thought I would make a compromise and stuff them into one post :)
It seems that in March I had quite the cravings for Asian food!

Acht Schätze – pretty sure it is not translated to “eight treasures” into English right?

Dan Dan noodles and lamb skewers

The shao lun bao here have been praised a lot online and since they are not easily found in Vienna, I just had to try them! If you go there, be sure to also try their yu xian aubergine dish, it tastes amazing. The service could be a bit more attentive and it is a bit cold but the food makes me come back!

Beijing Kitchen – G1,, Landstraßer Hauptstraße 71, 1030

Definitely not a beauty (inside and outside) and a very casual restaurant, you can find authentic Beijing cuisine here. The dim-sum are all made fresh and the noodles are also all handmade. Everything is really cheap and the portions are huge so you definitely will be taking some food home like us to enjoy later on ;)

Chinazentrum – Rechte Wienzeile 29, 1040 Wien

With my friend Jannica who speaks mandarin I finally dared to enter haha
They have a lot of options but we specifically were after dim-sum because they have the most extensive dim-sum list I found in Vienna. Everything was yummy and I especially enjoyed the deep-fried taro pockets filled with pork. The century eggs with congee weren’t so bad, better than the first time I tried them ;)

Hot Pot Chen – Linke Wienzeile 20, 1040

Dim-sum variation

I will be trying out the hot pot this evening actually so I can’t say anything about it yet but the dim-sum were all freshly made and super yummy! Not quite sure why they served it with sweet and hot chilli sauce but the price 3,5€ per portion is quite cheap! It is very new and therefore you can’t find anything online yet.
