XeÔm – Vietnamese street cuisine

Vietnamese Street Cuisine is magnificent. For some strange reason there are only a few good street Vietnamese spots in Hamburg. Unlike in Berlin. Or in Ho-Chi-Minh city. So every new place is greeted warmly. Especially if it is in such a sweet location. On the edge of the Karo-Viertel, beneath the television tower and halfway to the beautiful gardens of ‘Planten & Blomen’, there is the XeÔm.

The XeÔm is a classic street kitchen, with bright blue plastic chairs (the right kind), sticks and sauces on the tables, on the Hamburg pavement. The staff is super-friendly and relaxed. They offer a lot of classic dishes, like glass noodle salads, Phở and the best-of-Hanoi appetizers. Their specials are always… special. Also, try the homemade lemonades, iced green tea or a Vietnamese coffee. You can’t really do anything wrong here. Not in a place so right.

One nice extra is the sun, which shines on the outdoor tables from noon until 15:00. In the evening the sun reflects in the mighty windows of the exhibition hall. So, you still can wear your nice sunglasses when you slurp your Phở. Which is a good thing.

Even if it is too cold to sit outside, come and enjoy the food. This place actually has really cosy indoor seating as well.

XeÔm also has take-away service, takes no reservations and only accepts cash.
