Viên

OPENED23 DAYS AGO

West Village eatery Viên expands with a second location in Midtown.

Viên is a fast-casual Southeast Asian spot with a focus on hawker-inspired street fare.

Vien - summer rolls

The Spot:

Hawkers are Asia’s sought-after street vendors, known for serving just one or two dishes, but doing them exceptionally well. Viên’s founder Mark Sy aims to bring the vibrant colors and exotic flavors of hawkers to New York, while building a local community at the same time – just like in Southeast Asia.

Vien - noodles

The Food:

Viên serves noodle, rice or salad as a base, which can then be elevated with a variety of toppings. Think proteins such as grilled ginger beef, lemongrass chicken or seared turmeric tofu, alongside fresh herbs and spices for an extra kick. Then, bowls are finished off with a sauce of your choice, including Vietnamese lime, sweet chili or Thai peanut. Following tradition, Viên serves pandan basil-seed tapioca for dessert, which is a creamy pudding with crunchy nibs of white grains.

Vien - sandwich

The Drinks:

Vîen serves refreshing sodas, including mango juice, a guava drink and Thai iced tea.

The Damage:

Dishes vary between $8 and $12.

Vien - bowls

In a Nutshell:

If you missed out on the whole backpacking through Southeast Asia experience, Viên ensures an authentic meal that is just as good as the real deal.
