Hot Pot, Dim-Sum, and more

Right next to young designers’ ateliers, hip stylists, and individual concept stores we found another attraction and example of the Gumpendorferstrasse’s creative variety: Mama Liu & Sons. Fans of cuisine from the Far East can look forward to a very authentic piece of China right in the middle of Austria’s capital.

The variety of cold and warm entrees bear interesting-sounding names like Hai Dai Sha La (seaweed salat with ginger and chili), La Jiao (green peppers in black bean sauce) and Cong You Bing (home-made flatbread, filled with spring onion and sea salt). In the stylish Chinese restaurant, the small dishes are often mixed and shared. All dim-sum, traditional dumplings, are made and filled by hand and served steamed or fried.

Aside from the delicious appetizers Mama Liu & Sons is known for one thing in particular: the Hot Pot. The concept is a type of fondue: with a pot of hot soup in front of them guests can cook many different ingredients right at their table. We tested the delicious curry-coconut soup with lemongrass and a hint of coriander and chose a Hot Pot set with meat. Thanks to seasonal vegetables, tofu, and gluten-free noodles there also is a wide variety that’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The Hot Pot soup fondue is best enjoyed in a merry round that makes you easily forget the time in the restaurant’s beautiful atmosphere. Slow-food is the keyword!

A peculiar eye catcher: gin, vodka, and tequila bottles on every table – at Mama Liu & Sons they are simply recycled and used as water bottles. And at the same time they get you interested in a nightcap after the meal! No matter if it’s Tiger Beer, Rucola Smash, or Green Tea Pear Gimlet – the bar likes to prepare experimental cocktails and long drinks as well as popular classics for its guests.

Since Mama Liu & Sons tends to be quite busy we recommend making a reservation to make sure you get one of the popular tables. And in the end, there’s only one thing left to say: chī hǎo hē hǎo!
