Berlin is a wonderful city for many reasons, the history, the architecture and the people, but as a vegan it is a paradise – full of vegan choices at every turn.
Here are some of the highlights:
All over the city there are kebab shops, but unlike the UK versions, all of these serve delicious falafel in pitta with salad. A great vegan-friendly option if you need something fast!
There are a few chains of organic shops and health food stores, such as Viv Stores and LPG, which have a wide variety of vegan products and an entirely vegan chain of food shops called Veganz – these are filled with mock meats, cheeses, store cupboard essentials, sweets and drinks including the American brands such as Tofurky, Gardein and Daiya. There is also a coffee shop attached to Veganz – Goodies which sells amazing cakes, paninis, brownies and more.
Nearby there are other vegan boutiques selling shoes and clothes such as Avesu and DearGoods. Nearly every shop sells vegan-friendly Fritz Cola if you fancy a soft drink and we found almond and soy options as well as at least one vegan cake at most coffee shops.
Dr. Pogo is an independent vegan shop selling a wide range of chocolates, sweets, mock meats, cheeses, ready meals, drinks, whole foods, skincare and cleaning products.
You have to try the following restaurants/eateries too:
Sfizy Pizza – An all-vegan pizzaria with over a hundred different pizza options on the menu!
Voner – An all-vegan doner kebab shop!
Asia Gourmet – Choose your noodles, veg, tofu and sauce. Eat in or take away.
Vego Cafe – An all-vegan fast food cafe – think hot dogs, burgers, chips, bratwurst etc.
Delores – A Mexican burrito place with two vegan options.
Cupcake Cafe – Lots of vegan cupcakes, cakes and cookies.
Mio Matto – A gourmet veggie/vegan restaurant.
Goura Pakora – An all-vegetarian eatery with many vegan options.
There are so many more all over Berlin, you would need a month to try them all!
Go and visit because Berlin is a perfect weekend break destination for vegans.
