Ligsalzstrasse 23, Munich, Germany


12 Jan 2014

We sought out Bodhi for dinner after reading the fabulous reviews on Happy Cow and Bodhi didn't disappoint!

It looks like a 'normal' German pub but is entirely vegan. The staff are super friendly and we had great difficulty choosing from the extensive menu of german vegan fare. After the agony we settled on a smoked tofu pflammkuchen and a tofu roulade served with a rich gravy, potato knödel and sautéed red cabbage; traditional german dishes that we never dreamed we could eat. Wow! Really tasty.

For dessert, we lashed out on the chocolate mousse; one ball each of white and dark chocolate mousse brought together by a raspberry coulis. Divine!

Go there and fill your face with amazing german vegan food!

Injera amazingness in Stuttgart

12 Jan 2014

With one encouraging review on Happy Cow and window signage advertising vegan options, we thought that Adulis would be worth a try. And we are SO glad we did.

The menu has a vegetarian section with vegan options clearly marked. The two of us shared a vegan taster plate of vegan offerings with 6 injera for 29 euros (see photo). It was amazing. The injera was light and fluffy and the accompanying stews and curries varied and tasty including a dahl, okra, spinach and several others. We didn't want it to end.

Try the vegan pflammkuchen

12 Jan 2014

We stopped by for breakfast upon hearing that Max Pett had opened a small cafe in this vegan supermarket. There were plenty of options; a good range of salad and vegan wurst rolls as well as several pflammkuchen options and an antipasto plate. We went with the latter two; both were good value and tasty (see photo). The pflammkuchen had tofu, spinach and tomato sauce on a lovely crisp base. The antipasto platter was piled high with the tempeh and broad bean dishes the standouts.

Unfortunately the soy cappuccinos we had were a disappointment.

Veganz is also running vegan cooking classes which look interesting.

A good option close to the Lama temple

12 Jan 2014

We stumbled across Fairy Su after visiting the Lama Temple. We were initially drawn in by the idea of a warm soy milk to defrost our bodies from the cold weather but after a friendly welcome from the staff and seeing the extensive menu and realising we had heard about it on Happy Cow, we couldn't help ourselves.

We weren't too hungry so only ordered two dishes; a scrumptiously spicy mock meat and veg hotpot and another dish of greens and mushrooms. While both dishes were a bit oily, the hot pot was definitely the winner; we still salivate thinking about the punchy chilli and pepper flavours. The hot soy milk was a treat and we certainly left the place feeling warm and full.

The service was fast and there was at least one staff member who spoke english. Not the best in town but well worth a visit.

Fabulous vegan blueberry cashew 'cheese' cake

12 Jan 2014

We stopped in at Gratitude for coffee and cake and immediately lamented the fact that we couldn't possibly fit in what read to be a hearty tempeh salad or tempeh burrito, a refreshing contrast to the predominant mock meat focus of most veg places in Munich.

Although the friendly waitress was apologetic about the price of the vegan cashew cheesecake (6 euros), she provided a wonderful explanation of the cake and we couldn't help ourselves. We shared the blueberry and chocolate one between the two of us. It was decadent, rich and delicious and certainly enough for us both.

Gratitude is a lovely place and would highly recommend going there. Looking at the menu, while the options are limited, there seems to be an emphasis on quality over quantity, and perhaps less focus on mock meat than found in other Munich establishments. Do visit.

Leopoldstrasse 3, Karlsruhe, Germany

Good vegan options

12 Jan 2014

So straight up: L'Incontro serves meat. BUT they have a separate vegan menu (that you need to ask for) with a large range of vegan pizza, pasta and other italian fare using ingredients like vegan cheese, vegan béchamel sauce and vegan salami. The menu said that vegan desserts are available, but we were too full to discover them.

It's a good option for pleasing a mixed party of omnivores and vegans. Good to support restaurants taking this kind of initiative.

A super funky vegan oasis in Beijing

12 Jan 2014

While we didn't expect to eat western vegan food in Beijing, the incredible organic vegan food at the Veggie Table was certainly welcomed and appreciated. Everything is made onsite with great thought. We tried a number of dishes and drinks on two occasions. The highlights were definitely the mushroom pate, hummus with freshly made pita, chocolate cake and the mushroom burger (especially the dark seeded burger bun). Must tries are the alcoholic hot drinks; hot chocolate and chai, both with rum which go fabulously with the chocolate cake on a cold wintery evening in Beijing.

The interior is pretty funky, warm and inviting. There's lots to look at, from the records on the walls to the beautiful greenery framing the windows, which distracted us from our slowish table service as similarly experienced by other reviewers. But that suited us fine as we wanted to stay as long as possible.

Best coffee in Munich

12 Jan 2014

A small, cosy and friendly place, Yam Vegan Deli serves the best coffee we had in Munich (this is coming from two Melbournians).

We also had a light lunch between the two of us, the Mix Tape; a taster plate of two salads and a small soup for 9 euros. Great value and delicious.
