Berlin is a vegan’s paradise. In this post I’m sharing my favorite places to eat vegan in the capital of Germany. Let’s get started!
Vegan in … is a series of posts on Elephantastic Vegan where I write about my vegan travelling experiences. I love to travel especially to larger cities, rather than spending my days on the beach at some resort, but finding restaurants with vegan options in a foreign city isn’t always that easy. With this post I want to show you awesome places to eat for your next trip to Berlin in Germany! :)
It’s never a bad idea to use HappyCow to get a neat overview of your vegan eating possibilities. I haven’t even had the chance to try all of the vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants in Berlin because the city has so much to offer for vegans! So naturally this post only contains the few options that I’ve tested & tried.
This is my second time in Berlin as a vegan. You can read about my favorites from the first trip here.
Streetfood Market at Mauerpark (on Sundays)
Bernauer Straße 63-64, 13355 Berlin
I can highly recommend checking out the Mauerpark fleamarket on sundays. Not only can you find lots of vintage items and enjoy live performances, but there’s also a streetfood market and they have LOTS of vegan options. Actually so many, that we didn’t even manage to try them all.
Der vegetarische Metzger (The vegetarian butcher)
Bergmannstraße 1, 10961 Berlin
By accident we found the small bistro and I’m so glad we did. We ordered the Pulled Beef Burger, fries with guacamole (yassss) and Chicken Shawarma. Everything was absolutely delicious and it’s pretty inexpensive too. I loved the atmosphere in the restaurant – it’s small but there’s nice music, modern interior and the staff is super friendly. You can also buy the packaged meat alternatives.
Maybachufer 8, 12047 Berlin
We already knew what was expecting us, because we’ve visited Brammibal’s Donuts on our last trip to Berlin: The best donuts ever! But this time we had the time to go there more often and try out the different donuts. My favorites were the Strawberry Cream Cheese Donut and the Maple Coconut Bacon one. Brammibal’s Donuts is a must-visit when you’re in Berlin!
1990 Vegan Living
Krossener Str. 19, 10245 Berlin
1990 Vegan Living offers vietnamese tapas bowls, a few regular-sized portions and awesome alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks. They have about 20 different tapas you can choose from, so there’s plenty to try out. Everything was perfect: The food, the atmosphere, the drinks, the friendly staff. This restaurant is truly a hidden gem. The food was actually so good, we went there 3 times during our 5-day trip! We couldn’t get enough and we’ve tried our way almost all the way through the tapas bowls menu. There’s this one crazy bowl with marinated seitan on a sugar cane – omg – so good! We’ve even ordered two of that one and you can see it on the second photo.
Schliemannstraße 15, 10437 Berlin
Chaostheorie is a 100% vegan cocktailbar and we’ve actually been there before and enjoyed it so much – so of course, we had to come back. But this is the first time we were super organized and came on a Thursday because this is the only day they serve vegan Döner – which is well seasoned “meat” that you can get in a bread or on a plate with fries, salad and yogurt sauce. The food is as delicious as the drinks! Definitely worth a visit!
Let me know: Have you ever been in Berlin? Do you have any additional vegan-friendly restaurant tips? I’d love to know in the comments!
