Xu’s Cooking – Vegan Chinese place

Always on my mind, exploring Xu’s for the first time: back then my friend and I were on our way to a vernissage when she craved dim sum. This is how we came across this special Chinese restaurant in Vienna. I recall us wondering if the “meat” was real. You might want to laugh at us but since the menu only said “beef” and “chicken” we were looking for those.

However, the vegan (very few dishes are vegetarian and clearly marked) food was promptly served and moreover very delicious; we couldn’t help but promise that we would be back. And we’ve kept our word.

I like the fact that Xu’s is open every day, so I don’t have to check first what day of the week it is/if a holiday is coming up & whether the restaurant is open or not. For their lunch buffet, which is slightly more expensive on weekends, there’s a wide range of varying dishes available.

Even if you were to never give up on consuming meat, the food served here is so “convincing” you’ll just give in to the vegetarian call every once in a while.
