Pure tasty food with a 'feel good' vibe!

4 Posted on 08 / 15 / 2012

This is a really nice place to stop if you are seeing Charlottenburg or the palace. The menu is limited as it is seasonal. When I went there was only one real vegan option (which was also the vegetarian option as the other three meals involved fish) but you could add extra tofu, tempeh etc. to it at an extra cost.
For around 10 euros we ate a very wholesome dish indeed! Bulgar wheat with sweetcorn, a huge array of very fresh vegetables and a very tasty lentil and carrot stew. We both ordered the large plate as we had walked from Kreuzberg to Charlottenburg and were really tired and hungry but, to be honest, it was a struggle to finish it all. They are certainly generous with their portions.
It was what I can only describe as 'wholesome'. A bit like what the old-school veggie cafes used to serve in the 80s. All good, natural stuff and very tasty indeed. It was also a welcome relief to eat the kind of food you'd make yourself (albiet, at least for me, much nicer!) rather than all fake meats and really rich sauces.
It's good stuff. Would have been nice to have had a couple of choices though but I guess that's why everything is so fresh.
The decor is quite simple but it's very clean and the amount of lone diners in there gave me the impression that this is a popular lunch spot for local office workers seeking a few minutes to themselves in order to have a tasty wholesome meal.
The waitress was lovely and we muddled through in bits of German and English.
They also do beer (including non-alcoholic beer), which was something of a relief to my boyfriend!

Pros: wholesome, tasty, fresh
Cons: only one vegan option

A fine experience

4 Posted on 09 / 25 / 2011

Per quanto riguarda la mia esperienza personale, dopo la classica, e ottima, zuppa di miso, abbiamo assaggiato il monopiatto del giorno, a base di grano saraceno, carote, broccoli alle nocciole e seitan al sesamo, accompagnato da un vassoio di crudità.
I went there on a chilly Sunday afternoon for lunch. The restaurant is very nice, and so is the chef, a very friendly Austrian guy.
I had a hearty miso soup, followed by a dish wirh buckwheat, carrots, hazelnut broccoli and sesame seitan, and a plate of raw veggies.
I then had an amazing almond cake with vegan custard cream: absolutely scrumptious!

Pros: very good food, organic food

Why serve Fish?

3 Posted on 08 / 28 / 2010

This is an impressive and professional place that takes its cooking seriously having its own cooking school. A simple interior serving very good vegan food but there are one or two fish dishes that spoil the setting. The Sunday brunch is very good but comes at a price. One visit is enough for me. If you happen t5o live in Berlin or are thee for a long period of time it's worth a visit for sure but otherwise it's not an essential venue for vegetarian dining. Remove the fish and I will return.

Pros: sunday brunch, professional
Cons: fish served

vegetables at its best

4 Posted on 10 / 13 / 2009

This is a small restaurant just a short stroll away from Castle Charlottenburg. The interior is a bit bland, but the food is amazing. The chef is one of Berlin's best macrobiotic cooks. They are only open for lunch and offer a menu that changes every day accompanied by a few classics you can always order.
Food is almost exclusively vegetarian, mostly vegan actually, highlights are the super-crisp vegetables that are really something different.
Meals usually consist of one vegetable unit, rice, bulgur, wheat, and a source of protein, often tofu, tempeh, beans, sometimes fish. Salad comes with each meal, there is also a small selection of deserts.

You can choose between a small and a big plate, they are usually between 7,50 and 11,90, depending on the ingredients.

You will leave the restaurant refreshed and with a feeling of having treated your body to an extra dose of healthy "fuel".

Pros: very tasty and original dishes, friendly staff, knowledgable and chatty cook
Cons: bland interior, only open for lunch
