Mai-Wok, Birmensdorferstrasse, Zurich
Mai-Wok is a small takeaway / restaurant located next to the Restaurant Bahnhof Wiedikon. It’s a bit tricky to find, since it’s flanked by two large construction sites. I was the only person in there but was treated very nicely. Appetizer was a summer roll, nothing special, but it was freshly made. Main course was much more exciting. Bun Bo, essentially beef slices on some rice vermicelli, spiced up with sauce, crunchy onions, peanuts and herbs. For me this is one of the dishes which really show the depth of flavor of vietnamese cuisine. Depending on what you spoon on your fork (or grab with your chopsticks) you get a different flavor experience. Summer roll was CHF 5.50 and Bun Bo 17.50.
