Asian food is my favourite. It doesn’t really matter which part of Asia (I’d say Chinese is my least favourite but I’d still eat it haha), so I’m always excited when I find new Asian restaurants anywhere.
This time my friend showed me a little restaurant in the heart of Munich, very close to Marienplatz, that serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
Where exactly? Soumi – Soups and Banh Mi, Sendlinger Str. 7
(if you are in front of Abercrombie, looking away from it, you have to go
straight into this little archway, the restaurant’s hidden on the square
What? Vietnamese Food: Spring Rolls, Salad, Banh Mi, Pho and Curry
How much? €6 – €10,50
The restaurant is fairly small with around 10 tables for maximum 4 people (obviously the tables can be pushed together) and the interior is very simple in black and red.
When we were there, there was just one more table occupied and they were already finished with eating, so our food came very quickly – but it was still delicious.
They have an open kitchen in the front where they prepare the Banhs in front of your eyes if you want to and the Pho is brought from the kitchen.
Since they only have a small menu, I guess it will always be fairly quick, no matter how crowded the place is.
So after just coming back from Vietnam and being a bit spoiled when it comes to Vietnamese food, Soumi (they also do deliveroo if you’re in Munich) didn’t disappoint me!
Tipp: We ordered a Banh Mi AND a small Pho, but trust me, you’ll definitely be full after the Banh Mi. It’s a fairly big baguette. So no extra Pho needed 🙂
