5 must-visit restaurants for vegetarians in Berlin

1) Cookies Cream

This posh place has something secret about it: guests aren’t allowed to take photos inside, and it’s a bit hard to find – you have to take a look on their website for hints about the location. Maybe that’s part of the reason why it attracts a fashion crowd. Also, the food is extremely good (and doesn’t come cheap). There’s always one vegan option. The owners also have the equally excellent restaurant Crackers.

2) Bistrot Bardot

The bistro of the (bio)hotel Almodovar in trendy Friedrichshain is light and friendly. The limited but creative menu features mostly Mediterranean dishes, made with organic and fresh ingredients. They offer a very good Sunday brunch at a reasonable price. Check out the nice backyard.

3) Ataya Caffe

Elisabette (a chef born in Sardinia) and Bachir (a musician born in Senegal) are the owners of this lovely living-room-style cafe in fancy Prenzlauer Berg. A unique place where Italy meets Africa and where the plates are as colourful as that mix sounds. Their Sunday brunch is to die for, but make sure to make a reservation a few days ahead to be sure of a spot.

4) Momos

Momos are typical Himalayan dumplings, and this restaurant takes them to a next level: all the ingredients are strictly organic and everything is home made. Try the ‘Momo experience’ to taste all six momos and their dips. Order at the bar (like in many other Berlin’s establishments). Open everyday. Also take-away.

5) Restaurant 1990

Berlin’s culinary scene represents a huge number of cultures and this number is still increasing. Restaurant 1990 is one of the newcomers. It serves one of the best vegan Vietnamese tapas in town in a great ambience. Tip: order a myriad of their adorable little bowls. Every single one not only looks fabulous, but even tastes better.
