This hole in the wall is easy to miss, and we have to admit, we almost left it out until it was recommended by the daughter of the owner of another popular Vietnamese place in the 7th district (we know people ;-). Happy Vietnam serves up classic Vietnamese dishes in a small fast food eatery on Neubaugasse. Given the narrow and small size of the place, most customers get their meals to go, however, there’s also a few seats to sit and eat. But whether you decide to stay or go, the low prices are one of the things people love about Happy Vietnam (most dishes are priced between 5–8€). Their summer rolls are popular, while their noodle and meat ‘Bun’ bowls (which also come in vegetarian) are a real favourite.
The frying pots and pans of the kitchen, that are in sight from each of the 8 seats inside, make up the background noise here. And as for the soup, it definitely gets the job done: it’s freshly made, intensely flavoured and delicious, yet completely unpretentious, just like the prices and the look of the place.Throughout summer, there’s a few tables and chair on the street amongst the hustle and bustle of Neubaugasse.
