good restaurant - Edit

I was a bit disappointed because my sweet potato burger didn't taste that good... The patty was so big and the consistency not so good. I'll give it another try! The service is friendly and the concept great :)

Excellent burgers. - Edit

I was visiting Giessen for a night and chose to go Bärenstark because it was close to where I was staying. Was a decent decision as the seitan burger I had was fantastic. Full of flavour, filling, and a great texture. I was there fairly early and was the only person when I arrived. By the time I left, the place was full. I can understand why. It's not the cheapest (14 Euro for the burger, chips, and drink), but it was worth it.

It's a hard place to find, though. It's hidden away off of the street, down an arcade, and isn't visible from the street. Don't give up looking for it - it's close to the playground - go down the arcade by it.

Good, Simple, Regional Food - Edit

The system is very simple, and the choices varied, but not overwhelming. We ordered the seitan teller, which was very fresh and filling! (So good value for money) Could have done with a bit more herbs and spices, but otherwise good! Would come back again, especially since it is so close by to where I live :D

Pros: Location, Portion Size, Atmosphere

Cons: Lack of herbs and spices

Best burgers in Giessen! - Edit

It is not easy to get a vegan dinner on a weekend in Giessen, with the notable exception of vegan burgers: There are at least three places serving decent ones. Bärenstark is the only all-vegan place of them and also has the best burgers in town. I can recommend the beetroot one in particular, but the other ones are nice as well. You can also have their patties in pide bread, like a döner, or as a salad.

The prices are on the higher end of the Giessen-burger-prices spectrum: 9 EUR for the single burger, 14 including fries, dip and a drink. But, portions are very filling, everything is organic and local and their burgers are definitely worth it. Make sure to check them out when you are in Giessen! Plus, staff is very friendly and they have carnivorous plants which I find hilariously ironic in an all-vegan place.
