Respond to Review of Lucky Leek
Review: My husband and I were just in Berlin and,on our final day,we ended up at Lucky Leeks. Boy were we glad to finally get to have a meal reminiscent of the vegan meals I would get when I lived in New York City at places like Counter and Candle 79. It is gourmet vegan cuisine at it's finest. The menu is a bit more limited and put me off on the idea of eating there,but only for a moment. We had walked good ways and it was getting a little late,so we decided to eat there. The best decision we could have made. We didn't get any soup or appetizers only because of the prices and we had spent so much the whole week already. We did get two entrées-one was a seitan dish with a potaoe au gratin,and lots of vegetables,which was amazing and perfect. We also got a dish that consisted of an elegantly stuffed eggplant rolls (they had a fancier name,but I forget what it was),stuffed with pecans puree and spices which was incredible,and this was with a side of baked polenta and a soy "cheese" on it. Every single bite was a incredible. For dessert,we ordered the chocolate tart with a mocha mousse. The tart was more of a cake than what i think of as a chocolate tart,which are usually heavier and denser. This was with some berries and a chocolate sauce. Heaven!! We also got the vanilla mousse,which was excellent,but did pale next to the chocolate and mocha mousse,only because the chocolate was so rich and heavenly. I hope that everyone who is veg and visits (or lives) in Berlin will eat at this restaurant and have the great experience my husband and I had. I want this place to stay open so we can go back when we're next in Berlin. Really,this place is worth the walk from the train and the higher prices for the meal. Also,the service was great and really friendly and the place,itself,was beautiful. And all of this is coming from a spoiled ex-New York vegan.
