GA listing : Some Asian restaurants to try out in Bonn

It was 1923 when the first Asian restaurant opened in Germany - in Berlin. Now there are more than 10,000 Asian eateries throughout all of Germany. Here’s a look at some in Bonn and the region.

Dim Sum

For Koon-Sun Man of Dim Sum in Bonn, most important in his restaurant is providing top quality and the preparation of the food with skilled hands. Offering traditional Cantonese appetizers, Dim Sum aims to stand out from the other Asian restaurants that serve fast food and All-you-can-eat buffets. In Dim Sum, the steamed appetizers are served in characteristic bamboo baskets. Hargau, dumplings with prawns and bamboo, a kind of Chinese tapas, and Siu Mai, pork with prawns and shiitake in Wan-Tan dough are some of the most popular dishes in the eatery.

Gin Yuu

"Eat simple, live easier." The name of the restaurant "Gin Yuu" comes from this saying. The concept of pan-Asian Pacific cuisine, which began in Frankfurt in 2010 and continued in Bonn's Ollenhauerstrasse in 2012, is now also available in Stuttgart and Bochum. In the beginning, the restaurant was based on the concept of the Vapiano restaurants with an open kitchen, chip card and remote to be brought to the table, vibrating when the food is ready for pick-up.

The idea for Vapiano idea and Gin-Yuu restaurants both come from the Bonn entrepreneur Kent Hahne. But the concept for Gin-Yuu has since evolved in that guests are now served at their tables. The dishes are based on an Asian cross-over cuisine that is Californian-modern.

The noodles for the soups are freshly prepared in front of the guests.
