Respond to Review of Fast Rabbit Fast Food
Review: I went here as this place was closing to see what they had to offer and when I mentioned HappyCow, the owner (Christoph) came out to talk to me. He told me that he had in the catering business for years and he explained how he was interested in the vegan food revolution taking place in Berlin, but thought there was more to vegan fast food than veganised junk food classics that often use processed veggie “fake meat”. This is where the concept for “Fast Rabbit Fast Food” was born: healthy vegan fast food – veggie junk food that is good for you. This was the idea behind the name of his trademark dish “the dirty roll”: freshly made wraps filled with a combination of fresh ingredients, including: homemade paste, fresh salad, freshly sprouted seedlings (sprouted there in jars on the wall), lightly cooked vegetables and pulses. It has the taste and feel of fast food, but it’s fresh and healthy. Despite the kitchen being closed, he made us one especially so that we could try it. It did exactly as described; it was delicious and tasted fresh and healthy. We also tried a lemon orange tart (very nice) as well as a chocolate cookie (not too sweet tasted like chocolate and not just sugar) and were impressed with the quality. In fact, most things are freshly made in the kitchen, even down to the handmade tortilla wraps themselves and the kitchen is 100% vegan. As well as wraps, Fast Rabbit offers salads, soup, cakes and sweets. The only non-vegan thing is the cow's milk served with drinks. The owner said he hopes to go 100% vegan at some point, probably once the business is stable. This is the reason why I only gave them 4 stars; it will get a well-earned 5 stars from me when it finally makes that step to eschew all animal products!
