Great burger - Edit

The burgers are real good. I loved the tangy sauce they put on it. The fried potatoes were great with it. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant also.

Pros: All vegan, Reasonably priced

Leckeres Essen - Edit

Nach lĂ€ngerem suchen haben wir das El Hasso auch noch gefunden. Fast unerkennbar fĂŒhrte eine kleine Treppe in den Untergrund. Zuerst dachte ich, dass da unten ein Pissoir sei, dann entdeckten wir eine kleine Tafel die auf das Restaurant hinwies.

Unten angekommen kamen wir in einen gemĂŒtlichen Gewölbekeller.

Zum Abendessen bestellten wir eine Suppe, den Hamburger mit Kartoffeln und Salat sowie die GemĂŒserösti. Das Essen schmeckte super und war auch schön angerichtet.

Bestellung werden an der Theke angenommen aber das Essen wird an den Tisch gebracht.

Etwas störend empfand ich den Kellner hinter der Theke, der sich wĂ€hrend unserem Aufenthalt andauernd mit den HĂ€nden durch die Haare fuhr und danach mit ungewaschenen HĂ€nden Brot schnitt und Essen servierte. Vielleicht wĂŒrde da ein Haarreif Abhilfe schaffen.

Pros: Leckeres Essen

Cons: schwer zu finden

delicious all vegan meals - Edit

The food is made of organic and mostly seasonal ingredients. It does taste extraordinary. Sometimes I think when I eat somewhere else I would have made a much better job in cooking that. I can’t cook like people in that place. At least not now - maybe some time in thefuture ;)
The staff is very friendly and prices are reasonable.
I would love to have dinner there again.

great place to be - Edit

Nice place with super friendly stuff and super yummy vegan burgers! The atmosphere is chilled and cosy. The portions are big enough for hungry Vegans and the price is totally okay for the size of the food!
You need to try the „El Haso Plate“: Burger with potato wedges and salad.
We went there twice and the daily changing soup was both times very delicious as well!

Pros: cosy atmosphere , friendly stuff , delicious vegan food

Tasty German home-style food - Edit

I have been to El Haso a few times and can recommend the food.
Two constantly changing meals of the day which come with a salad in advance. Tasty with lots of veggies, home-style cooking (don't expect fancy) - but it's always good, the salad great, nice choice of yummy deserts.
Soon going back for the burgers!

Pros: big portions, awesome mixed salad

Nice vegan option in Freiburg - Edit

I was in Freiburg for a conference and delighted to find this place. Having read the reviews on Happy Cow ahead of time, I knew not to be put off by the underground location. I guy behind the bar was very helpful in translating the menu for me and remembered me when I came back later in the week. The portions are large and the meal was tasty - the side salad with each meal was quite good. My favorite was there housemade lemonade - mmmm! Good service, good food, all vegan.

Pros: All vegan, Cozy atmosphere

Cons: Few menu choices (two dishes plus burger)

Cheap German-sized portions - Edit

Cheap German vegan food served with cheap German-sized beverages. This is the reason why I like eating in Germany as a Dutch girl :-) El Haso FTW.

Updated from previous review on 2015-05-12

Pros: alternative atmosphere, cheap food, Boardgames!

good food, cool vibe. - Edit

El Haso is placed, a bit weirdly, underground, and the only way to the place is through a shabby passage. It got me a bit discouraged at the beginning, but once I got inside, my fears vanished, as it turned out to be a nice, alternative place, with stained glass windows and stylish old tables. They offer free water which apparently is a rarity in Germany. I was warned that they have a /healthy/ profile, so the food can sometimes be underspiced, but the burger that I ordered was actually very decent, the buns being freshly baked and the patty a bit flabby but it tasted well. The freshly baked potato wedges with the salad complemented the balanced composition on my plate - and it was just like it was supposed to be. It was not the best thing that I ever had, but it was certainly decent, worth its price and nobody left unsatisfied :-) El Haso - YES!

Fresh and tasty food with unique flavours - Edit

I've been there a few times and the food has always been amazing. There are two mains to choose from each day (+ salads, soup, desserts...) so the food is really fresh and tasty. The dishes are very elaborate, the flavors are unique and the portions are just perfect. They serve burgers after 10pm each day and one can check their daily menu on their website. Everything is vegan.

There is a courtyard to eat outside when the weather is nice. The indoor space has no natural light but it's got a nice atmosphere.

Pros: Fresh food, Lovely staff, Nice atmosphere

Cons: No natural light

Paradise! - Edit

Discovering El Haso made me a very happy earthling and I am going there every time I'm in Freiburg. They have a varied menu plus two daily options, which always have been an explosion of culinary creativity. The portions are huge and the food is fresh, healthy and extremely tasteful. The salads are very recommendable too as, here again, originality and taste are keywords: The consist of a variation of lettuces, wild herbs, different kinds of other veggies - each one made with different seasonings - and are accompanied by a little burger-patty or something similar. The homemade lemonade and the dessert are great as well.

Pros: Overly delicious-healthy-creative-food, Big portions, Everything!

Cons: None!

Delicious surprise! - Edit

We were a bit sceptical about visiting this restaurant as it was described as under ground and a bit of an English pub. however, it was really cosy inside and had a nice terrace outdoors.

Food was delicious and the staff were super friendly! Must visit.

Pros: Many vegan options

Cons: none

Relaxed and delicious - Edit

You must go downstairs and the establishment is on the left. You order at the bar. I understand they have a revolving menu but everything was vegan when we came. The service was welcoming and the food was great. Would recommend.

Pros: Delicious food

Cons: None

in the underground - Edit

Twice I've been in the El Haso and every time I loved the easy-going staff and the procedure of ordering the dishes at the bar. The menue is quite manageable but includes regional and seasonal dishes. El Haso is also a good place where you can enjoy a beer and the company of good friends in a laid-back atmosphere (board games and books are available and sometimes cultural events take place).

Pros: good value, regional and seasonal dishes, pub atmosphere

Full of surprises:) - Edit

One of the few places in Freiburg where you can always get a decent vegan meal, also late in the evening. Great spot (just next to White Rabbit club), different menu every week, inexpensive.

Some of the dishes are amazing, others can be a bit bland but.. hey, new week, new menu:)

Sometimes they also do Sunday brunches with homemade vegan croissants, scrambled tofu, pancakes, spreads, etc - not to be missed!

Pros: relaxed atmosphere, seasonal food, inexpensive

Cons: not open everyday

Vegan Oasis In Germany - Edit

We were beyond thrilled to find this gem of a restaurant during our travels. Great vegan food and a friendly atmosphere. It's not easy to find this place, by the way. They need better signs. Worth this search, though!

Pros: Great Vegan Food, Creative Vegan Desserts, Friendly Staff

Cool atmosphere, tasty food - Edit

In my opinion, any vegetarian/vegan restaurant that can survive in Germany (a land of meat-lovers) must be doing something right! And I'm happy to support that!

A very cool venue - an underground bunker, relaxed atmosphere, and an ever-changing menu.

While the options were limited, and the serving sizes huge, at least you know you can go back every week and get something new.

Pros: Cool venue - in the university sector, Relaxed dining - order at the bar, Cheap!

Cons: HUGE serving sizes, I prefer to avoid the seitan - rubbery!, No natural light
