Recommended by a friend since the chef previously worked at the famous (but now closed) Kafe Kopfeck. They always had incredible food and vegan options to dream of.
The Südstadt keeps this alternative punk-rock atmosphere but the creativity lacks a lot.
Had the saitan roast "meat" in red wine with french fries for 11,80 Euro. Just to find out it had the cheapest and smallest french fries you'll find in any supermarket and one slice of the very specific saitan that is available in various vegetarian shops. On top there were too many over-cooked onion pieces. And I really mean TOO MANY - it was all covered in it.
It came to my attention that most of the visitors are here for a beer rather than for the food. So the whole concept of the Südstadt is made mainly for party people.
In that perspective it's pretty okay that they have so many vegan options, but on the other hand the prices are hardly to justify if a random vegan person can identify all the items used from a few visits in vegetarian stores. Also the food was not nice arranged but pretty plain.

Cons: Pretty plain arranged food, Lack of creativity
