If at some point of your stay you get tired of the classic Austrian style of the restaurants and coffee houses and you want to experiment something new and more exotic, try the modern Vietnamese restaurant Ramien. With Cafe Stern and Phil as neighbors, this place couldn’t be bad. When my Austrian friend booked a table for us, I was expecting to find one of those dark, sordid places we usually find among Asian restaurants. That was quite the opposite though, as the main room is spacious and bright, enlivened by touches of red, and accompanied by a central counter with minimalist design, an open kitchen at the back where anyone can watch the chefs in action. What’s more, the restaurant is frequented almost exclusively by young people who assaulted tables in a few seconds at the time of my visit, and the result was a joyful cacophony. Food-wise, expect to find most of traditional Vietnamese dishes – except bobuns (?) – that are all served in large portions! On top of that, Ramien is one of the only restaurants to stay open on Sundays!
