VEGAN IN BERLIN – MY FAVOURITE PLACES

picture of vegan donut from brammibal's

I have picked these places myself, this post is no paid advertisement.

Finding food as a vegan in Berlin is really not a problem anymore. Happy Cow spits out countless results all over the city, chains like Dean & David or Dolores Burritos and many Vietnamese places have a range of vegan options, even some of the traditional curry sausage stalls offer a vegan curry sausage meanwhile – it’s Berlin’s specialty after all. 

As this is my hometown, of course I have tried a lot and come to like a few places the most. I’ll focus on the all-vegan ones in this blogpost, otherwise it would just get too much.

 

VEGAN IN BERLIN FRIEDRICHSHAIN

Whenever you ask for a good vegan restaurant in Berlin in a Facebook group, one of the first two answers will mention this place. For a good reason: you can’t do anything wrong coming here. This is where we take our guest, vegan or not. They always love the amazing and creative Vietnamese food, served as tapas in many little bowls, so if you go there in a group it’s like a little table buffet.

You might have guessed that I love buffets, right? The restaurant is located right at Boxhagener Platz, opening times are accommodating, service is very fast and friendly. Even if you don’t have a reservation, the place is quite big, so you’ll probably get a table. It’s not expensive and the audience is young and cheerful. What I particularly like is the cute retro style decor of the restaurant, that alone is worth going there. Check out their website here.

The pretty restaurant above the Veganz Supermarket and next to Avesu the vegan Shoe Store is Berlins first vegan sushi restaurant. It is run by the same family as 1990 Vegan Living and Cat Tuong in Prenzlauer Berg, which I have not visited yet, but my friend Elisa highly recommends it.

The ingredients in all three restaurants are mainly organic, the water is filtered and vitalised and glutamate is not used.

The sushi creations at secret garden are exceptional and I find all of them amazing, but you can also order warm food, like for example the yakitori, which is served with a tiny fireplace.

Not to mention the delicious and beautifully presented desserts. And just like 1990, it’s not very expensive. Find out more and have a look at the beautiful pictures on their Facebook page.

Not into sushi? No problem, from that corner at Warschauer Straße you can also see the East Side Mall. In that mall’s food court upstairs, you will find beyond burgers, fries with yummy sauces, loaded kebab fries and of course the aforementioned curry sausage. In case you have never heard about Berlin’s snack specialty, it’s a sliced roasted sausage drowned in a spicy ketchup sauce with lots of curry powder:

Originally a food truck and catering company serving vegan fast food and good karma, Vincent Vegan is starting to get established in food courts in Hamburg and now also Berlin. Check out their website here

VEGAN IN BERLIN KREUZBERG

If you’ve been following my instagram account, you’ll know that I absolutely love their perfect donuts and matcha latte right by the canal where we often take a walk and watch the swans when the weather is nice. (Picture with Boston Creme Donut and blurry swans.) They also serve sandwiches and meanwhile also have gluten-free donuts.

picture of vegan donut from brammibal'sThe one in Kreuzberg is the original one, Europe’s first vegan donut place. Meanwhile There is also a Brammibal’s in Prenzlauer Berg and a big fancy one at Potsdamer Platz (picture with maple smoked coconut donut, my absolute favourite combination).

It’s also perfect for a pre-movie snack or for stopping by during street protests which often take that route.

This is Cherry Amaretto, also fantastic, and so many more!

A new Brammibal’s is opening soon at famous department store KaDeWe, you can find out more on their website

 

VIASKO

Delicious homecooked food made of regional ingredients. On the menu, there are a few classics like the gyros plate and the mac and cheese in the picture, and some varying seasonal dishes. Yummy starters and desserts too. The interior reminds of the pub this place used to be and there’s a little beer garden outside in the summer.

It’s a good idea to check the opening times and make a reservation, especially for the extremely popular and amazing weekend brunch. Go to their website here.

Ok, I said I’ll focus on all-vegan places in this blogpost, but I have to make one exception, because this place is just too cool. I worked there for several years and had the most amazing time, and that’s why I know if you’re the slightest bit into punk rock you will love it. Not only there is the coolest collection of Ramones memorabilia, there are the coolest people ever working there with the best advice where to hang out when the museum closes.

My boyfriend (still a bit new to Berlin at that point) was pretty blown away when I took him there for the first time and Perry Farrell, yes, world famous Jane’s Addiction-Porno for Pyros-Lollapalooza-Perry Farrell appeared on the carpet right in front of him and sang a few songs.

That’s what it’s like here, I said. There’s brilliant musicians signing the wall all the time!

And: there is not just beer. There is good coffee, vegan and vegetarian breakfast, cake and sandwiches. Check out their website here

VEGAN IN BERLIN NEUKÖLLN

Cozy and friendly Italian restaurant run as a collective serving delicious Napolitan brick oven pizza and homemade pasta. The place is very popular and not extremely big, so you might want to make a reservation.

picture of vegan desserts at la stella neraWhat looks like a giant croissant there is a calzone, my boyfriend’s favourite, and I love the pizza Carciofina Piccante with smoked tofu, artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes. Also, the desserts are great, my favourite is of course the tiramisu! Find out more on their website.

 

 

 

CAFÉ VUX

I often go to this beautiful light spacious cafe to enjoy the Brazilian inspired brunch buffet with my mum, it somehow became a tradition. But actually the place is famous for its fantastic cakes and cupcakes. I can’t believe I don’t have a cake picture anywhere. Some food blogger I am. I guess I’ll have to go and eat cake there soon and take a picture. At least I can show you my loot from the last brunch buffet. Find out more on their website.

ALASKA BAR

How amazing is it to go to a nice Spanish tapas and cocktail bar and not worry about anything being vegan or not? Pretty amazing, right? Here you can see the famous tortilla. And the other thing, I’m afraid I don’t remember what exactly it was, but it was great 🙂

If you want Berlin Neukölln this is it: a wild mix of second hand furniture, fun vibe, young people wearing typical Neukölln fashion that makes 40-year-olds (me) feel nostalgic and comfort food that everyone enjoys. “100% vegan, kind of organic, a little bit sexy” they describe their republic. Culture and burgers are on the agenda since this popular vegan food truck found a home. I really have to come back soon. Check out their website here, and their poutine in the picture.

VEGAN IN BERLIN PRENZLAUER BERG

 

vegan restaurant feel seoul good in berlinFEEL SEOUL GOOD

I always thought I don’t like Korean food, but that was before I came here. Beautiful restaurant, very polite and attentive service. And I absolutely loved the bibimbap. I wish I was in Prenzlauer Berg more often, then I’d come here all the time. This is their Facebook page.

VEGAN IN BERLIN MITTE

This is a still quite new zero waste restaurant with delicious and creative food on their changing menu and excellent and highly professional service. Be sure to have a reservation, as this place is popular. I went there with my girls and we all loved every bite of our food and the lovely wine. I had the spaghetti with Jerusalem artichokes in the picture.

If you want to show your parents great vegan food in a beautiful environment, sustainability with style and the typical Berlin vibe, without things getting too crazy, take them here. Find out more on their website.

VEGAN IN BERLIN CHARLOTTENBURG

TIGER CLUB

Yes, there are many vegan Asian restaurants in Berlin, and they all have great food as far as I have tried, but they are all in the same two or three districts. Tiger Club went for areas that are a bit of a vegan desert: Charlottenburg and Steglitz. I have been to both locations, the food was delicious and the service great.

This place brews their own beer and you haven’t been to Germany unless you’ve had some decent beer. The cozy restaurant located in one of the many beautiful old buildings in this district is the perfect place for that. Along with that you need to try their organic bread with oil and yummy spice mixture. The menu is mainly German, so if you wanted to try a curry sausage, you will find that here, too. And fancy desserts! More on their website.

These were just my favourites to check out if you’re a vegan in Berlin, and I will probably constantly add another one. Is there one you can’t believe I haven’t listed here? Let me know in the comments.

By the way, for more inspiration, you might want to check out my blogger colleague Veganmeister. He’s been doing a really good job eating his way through Berlin as a vegan and posting about it.

Also interesting: along with Happy Cow and Vanilla Bean, we have our own app Berlin Vegan here, that you can download for free.
