Berlin is widely considered to be one of the best cities in the world for vegan food. On top of the deep and interesting history which initially drew me to visit, I was also excited to see the wide range of dining options available…a quick scan through a few blog posts and websites had revealed that there were just so many! I only spent two and a half days in Berlin so I can’t even begin to write any kind of guide to the vegan scene in the city, but I thought I would highlight just a few spots which you might like to check out if you’re not sure where to start.
Curry At The Wall
From the moment I arrived in Berlin I was determined that at some point during my trip I would locate vegan currywurst! I didn’t have to look very far before I discovered Curry At The Wall, located on Zimmerstraße, very close to the Topography of Terror. This is a regular currywurst fast-food joint with a vegan option, which is a delicious, and can be bought in a meal deal with fries (also vegan) and a drink for a very reasonable price.
Located on Wilhelmstraße, just a few minutes’ walk from the Brandenburg Gate, Samadhi is a sit-down vegetarian South East Asian restaurant with plenty of vegan options. The staff are friendly and will clarify whether you want a vegan or vegetarian version of a dish which could be either, and although the restaurant was busy they were happy to seat this solo diner. I enjoyed a delicious pineapple curry, which came in a very generous portion, and a Thai beer. The menu is copious and were I staying in Berlin longer I would have gone back another day to try something else too.
I found this vegan burger spot on Georgenstraße when i was looking for a quick lunch before my Communist Berlin walking tour. Their “chicken” wrap with sweet potato fries and a fizzy drink served in a cute mug more than did the trick. The burgers looked great too. It was busy when I was there, but with a quick turnover of customers eating and leaving it was easy enough to get a seat. There’s apparently another branch elsewhere in the city too.
This vegan Vietnamese restaurant on Oranienburger Str. was packed out when I arrived, and I had to wait 10 minutes or so for a table to be available – if you are dining in a larger group you will probably want to try to make a reservation in advance. It was worth the wait however – I enjoyed a massive bowl of com cary; tofu, vegetables and rice in a coconut curry sauce.
Vedang Plant Burger
When I arrived at my hostel mid-afternoon after the flight from London, I was starving and looked for the nearest and easiest place to grab some food, which turned out to be this vegan burger outlet in the food court on the second floor of the huge Mall of Berlin. While it’s nothing particularly groundbreaking, the burger was excellent and it was reasonably priced, so if you’re in the area and looking for a convenient, quick and easy lunch then I would definitely recommend.
These are only a fraction of the places available for vegan travellers to eat in Berlin, so I would encourage you to do your own research too; there are many blog posts and Pinterest boards on the topic, and you can use the Happy Cow website to see what’s available in the area in which you’re staying too. Enjoy!
