Yummy vegan fast food

Posted on 12 / 30 / 2013

The Centrum is temporary the best spot in Hannover for vegan burgers and other fast food. They offer most of the dishes in vegan. But be careful: Sometimes they come in trouble with that and you get it in vegetarian or with meat. Once it happened to me. I ordered a burger in vegan but I got with meat. But when I complained about it I got a new burger for free. I think that's okay then. :) The other 10 times I went to this restaurant I always got what I'd ordered.
Taste the burgers, especially the Chiliburger is my very favourite! :) Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff.

Pros: Delicious!, Fair prices, Nice atmosphere
Cons: You can't pay with cash card, Sometimes trouble with orders

Great food, but be aware for unvegan/unvegetarian

Posted on 01 / 27 / 2013

First- i like the athmosphere. The bar is full of trashy vintage furniture (with some leather sofas, what i dont like).
The staff feels like home and it depends very much on how is serving you- there are some great and some unfriendly staffmembers.
The food is tasty too. But here its the same- sometimes you get great food, sometimes the same dish a few days later tastes not so good. Maybe they have two different cooks- i dont know!
But the biggest problem is that they serve vegan, vegetarian and meat options. And they often mess it up, you order vegan and get meat, you order vegan and get cheese...
You have to be very careful and should mention vegan 100times and ask when the food comes if its really vegan.
Thats annoying for me as a guest and for the staff also.
Its also important to mention, that 2/3 is for smokers and the doors dont close between the areas, so it could be a bit smokey

Pros: good food, huge portions
Cons: you often get unvegan food, unfriendly staff SOMETIMES

    I have been there maybe 10 times, and have never had any slip-ups (as in getting non-vegan options), but I witnessed during one of the "vegan meetings" that a lady who was not aware that they have non-vegan options orderes scrambled eggs (assuming it was scrambled tofu from the slightly misleading menu) and the waiter did not point it out to her (as they serve people with all kinds of diets).

    Pay attention to the little signs in the menu that denote vegan, vegetarian (containing milk/egg) or meat options, and make clear that you want it vegan.

Pub with vegan options

Posted on 09 / 13 / 2010

The 'Centrum Linden' is a modern pub or bistro with an unusual option - one of the owners is vegan, and nearly all dishes on the menu (maybe 95%) are offered in an 'original' and in a 'vegan' variety. For that reason, it was a 'natural' location for some of Hannover's Vegan meetings (the other being the 'Loving Hut') and most of the participants (~30) praised the taste of the food. Of course we could not compare the quality of both versions, but the vegen versions of the dishes that were tasted passed the taste test. Nice outdoor seating availagle on a little city square, althouth in the evening, the patrons have to move inside due to noise regulations (but then it is more of a bar/cocktail place anyway).

Pros: wide variety of dishes, great taste
Cons: some of the staff might be more friendly
