5.Vegan Fast Food @ Vego-Food-World
this is a vegetarian/vegan fast food restaurant! Always thought that as a vegetarian you could´nt eat fast food? Luckily this is not true!
At the Vego Food World they have burgers and home made fries, salads, wraps and pizzas. Yummie yummie! Located at the Lychenerstr. 63, 10437 Berlin, it is within walking distance from our Hostel :)!

 

At the hostel, you have the opportunity to be a cook and prepare a vegetarian or vegan meal for the other guests. It´s the EastSeven supper club where you can star as a cook, and you can get a night for free in a dormitory! It is always great fun to cook and eat with other people!

The best places for vegetarian Food in Berlin

Monday, January 16th, 2012

kaesespaetzle

Käsespätzle

Ann´s blog on veggie food in Berlin. 

I will share some of my favorite places to eat  with you!

As I am a vegetarian, I am always keen on trying new (vegetarian) restaurants. Most of the regular restaurants serve vegetarian food too, so now worries, if you are a vegetarian you definitely won´t starve here :)!

As Berlin is a big city I will now only focus on eateries that are located close to the   hostel in Prenzlauer Berg .

Located in one of the hippest streets in the district Prenzlauer Berg, Kastanienallee (or among locals often called: Casting allee), there is a small authentic Libanese Restaurant serving the best Falafal in town! The place is called Babel!
Also worth while is trying their Haloumi cheese sandwich, yummie. As in most arabic restaurants they serve tea for free. In summer there is a nice terrace outisde on the sidewalk. From here you have a great view over the Casting allee and all the beautiful hippsters walking down this road!!

Okay, sometimes as a vegetarian you have the urge for fast food, for a hamburger for instance. But the problem is most of the vegetarian hamburgers taste crappy.
I was so suprised as I finally found a great and really tasty vegetarian burger. If you want to try it you should go to the white trash fast food restaurant!!

Since you are ofcourse also interested in trying German food, at first you might think it´s nothing for you since there is a lot of meat involved.
But there is one dish that I really love and it is 100% meatless: it is KÄSESPÄTZLE. It is a kind of pasta like dish, with melted cheese and rosted onions, eat a salat with it and it´s a perfect meal. Try it at one of the nicest traditional german restaurants, Schwarzwaldstube!

 

Enjoy eating in Berlin!!
