  • Dim Sum - Vienna

This chinese-cantonese restaurant doesn`t look that nice from outside and is located at the Mariahilfer Gürtel, a busy street. It is right opposite the subway station Gumpendorfer Straße (U6). But what a surprise- Happy Buddha is absolutely reccomendable! I wasn`t that interested in chinese food so far, because I once had a bad experience with the local chinese restaurant in my home town- but they made me change my opinion :). They have a big choice of Dim Sum- I had some filled with shrimps as a starter, which were excellent. Then you can choose between all kind of meat, prawns, squid and other seafood or vegetable dishes. I had tofu with surimi and vegetables, which was a good choice. Even better are the prawns "kun po style", rather spicy prawns with vegetables and cashew nuts. If you fancy the more exotic kind of food, you can order frog`s legs, jellyfish, a fish head or chicken`s claws there as well (not for me though, thank you :)). A lot of chinese people frequent this restaurant, which should be a good sign. Main dishes cost between 10 and 20 EUR, Dim Sum and soups around 4 EUR.
