Going to Ra’mien for the first time will definitely leave you surprised, in several ways. Soup, vegetables, (meat), noodles, herbs and spices served in a giant-sized soup bowl. That’s what you’ll get and that’s what you’ll be heading back there for.
Entering the place: you’ll first be overwhelmed by how crowded it is, fair enough. Hint: enter around 14:00, when the lunchtime rush calms down. Admittedly this place is already pretty much of a locals’ magnet, so don’t expect to enjoy a calm dining atmosphere. Instead you should look forward to enter the lively world within, which turns out to be one of Vienna’s favorite Asian food spots.
Of course there’s also a wide and wild variety of other things to try out, like Miang Kum Leaves with coconut and lime, Papaya salad, or rice bowls and meat dishes, spiced up the Asian way. Mouthwatering? Indeed.
As this place attracts a good deal of hungry people make sure to get there early, make a reservation or be prepared to wait a bit for your table, sipping a beer with your friends at the bar or exploring the place’s own club downstairs. In any case, the food’s worth the wait.
