unreal vegan burger + cool atmosphere - Edit

The atmosphere just hits you in the face as soon as you walk in. It's a bit trashy and hard rock, but that's part of its charm. The servers are all so nice and polite. The BBQ burger was so unreal, I had to reassure myself the whole time it was vegan. The other food we tried here like the chili cheese fries and pulled vork burger were also good but nothing topped the vegan BBQ burger.

Pros: fun atmosphere , great service , quality vegan food

Cons: a bit loud (the music)

Excellent Atmosphere! - Edit

I have spent many evenings in this bar, dinking beers and eating the delicious vegan burgers and homemade fries. There is always good music and good vibes at Trash Chick, very relaxed and casual. They also have vegan brunch on some weekends, but I have never managed to go there, I am sure its great though!

Great pub - Edit

Don't expect gourmet cuisine here but a fine vegetarian or vegan burger in a cool pub that has board games and rock music inside, tables outside in a trendy tourist-free area of Cologne.

Staff were always very friendly when I was there. Prices are okay.

Pros: Fun place, Good range of burgers and chips, Nice to eat ouside in the summer

Good place, bad service - Edit

I used to go to this place and was quite happy. The food was fine (not the best, but far from bad), the place is very easy and alternative, so you can come and just be yourself. Until I had, after many times going there, to complain about a food that I found it was too spicy and they didn't state it on the menu.

Turned out they were accusing me to be mistaken, and as it was a curry dish, it was supposed to be spicy. Strangely enough, I have had indian curry for lunch the same day and it was much less spicy. Saying that since I've eaten almost all of it (which I had two spoonfuls to be sure it was not my tastebuds, clearly far from "everything") they could only provide me more rice or salad to keep eating the food I said "it was too spicy for me". Quite a frustrating solution.

Later on, I told the waiter about my dissatisfaction while paying and the answer was a dry "that's not up to me". And he left.

So, even though it's a nice place to go (don't eat the soja medallion if you are not a fan of hot spices, and the lasagna is over spiced too), I wouldn't recommend to anybody until they learn what means to take positive feedback from customers without trying to make them feel guilty for having a different opinion.

Very Cool! - Edit

I really liked it here. I got the chili cheese fries and they were great. My boyfriend got the chicken burger and it was excellent. I got the algae tofu burger and it wasnt good. Besides that, there are tons more on the menu I want to try!

Pros: good atmosphere, delicious

Cons: a bit pricey, dont try the algae burger

Real Fast Food - Edit

If you want burgers etc. that are really like burgers and not like healthy and stuff ;), then this is the place to go. Also the perfect atmosphere for food like that! Great music and table soccer included.
True, the food isn't very healthy and the Chili Cheese Fries could be less soggy. But just don't go there if you expect a real restaurant or gourmet food and you'll be happy with your Tofish-Burger and Chili "Cheese" Fries!

Pros: Great vegan fast food, Many vegan options, Good value

Cons: Not all vegan, Smokey when you arrive to late

Great food and beer! - Edit

I've lived in Cologne for a couple of years now and this has been one of my regular places to go for a couple of beers and some good vegan food. Granted, the menu is vegetarian and not fully vegan but you can get everything with vegan cheese. We typically get chips with 'cheese' and a big burger - they're amazing! The staff are really friendly and it's got a great 'small pub' atmosphere. They have a brilliant selection of beers and the prices throughout are pretty cheap in comparison to most places.

Pros: great food, lots of beer, friendly staff

Cons: sometimes there aren't enough seats

A fun pub - Edit

OK, I didn't actually eat any of the food here, as it was much too full to sit down when we turned up - it sounded good from the menu though. Furthermore, Trash Chic is an excellent pub with cheap beer and a friendly clientele, and they put up with a group of rowdy British types until five in the morning, so I couldn't resist rating it anyway and encouraging you to go there. I'll give it four, but it's only missing that last star because I never actually tasted any food, which seems like the primary point of a food website ;)

Vegan desserts too! - Edit

Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere with plenty of vegan options, including a cake. Good value burgers, pomme frites etc, they also had some other, healthier options like falafel salad plates.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, good service, good value

great, friendly! - Edit

the first time Sadly i was there late and I only had a beer. Nice place. BUT i did make some great friends in koln and they say its the best vegan food in koln and open late. I suggest to try it. Fast food.. I think hot chips are 2 euro.. thats all i remember.
But when I was here in 11.09 I had a burger, it was nice and with chips. Very tasty! good prices, especially for köln! The chef actually was very friendly and talked with me and my friend for 30 minutes

Pros: a selection, good beer and music, friendly service

Cons: doesnt say wahts vegan on menu, ask the staff

Tasty German-style pub grub - Edit

Went for an evening meal while visiting Cologne. When I asked which dishes were vegan, they said that the dishes could be made vegan or vegetarian. We had the Tofisch with creamed potatoes and spinach and the Currywurst with chips which were both very tasty. Tasty, warm pub food, also good value.

It was very dark and smoky inside which I personally found a little intimidating from the outside, but once we went in the staff were friendly and it all seemed very relaxed, it would probably be a great place to visit as a regular hangout.

Pros: good value, friendly, nice food

Cons: dark and smoky

Hamburger, fries and kicker!! - Edit

Now this is really a place I'd recommend to all vegans! Don't eat for a whole day, go there and try everything on the menu! Trash Chic is not a fancy place (what's in a name, right!?), but a place where most young people would feel comfortable. We arrived and it was still a bit early in the evening. Not a lot of people inside and it was actually quite dark inside... We only saw a day menu and we weren't really impressed. It's out of the city centre so we decided to have a drink and see what the evening would bring. And that's when we saw the menu... holy sh*t! Hamburgers, schnitzels, fries, tapas... and so many vegan options it took us forever to choose. My girlfriend and I both don't drink alcohol and the they had some very good alcohol free beers. Perfect combination with the hamburgers!
The staff is awesome. Young punk kids, relaxed and friendly.

Like I said, it's not the cleanest place ever, the food is not the healthiest, but it's good and tasty. If you want a salad bar, this is not your place. If you wanna live a little, go to Trash Chic!

PS: you can play kicker/ tablefootball there! yay!

Pros: sweet punk kids-staff!, delicious food, good atmosphere

Cons: a little dark...

What a fun place with great food! - Edit

I was so happy we went to Trash Chic. We spoke to several vegans in town who all recommended it. Its a short Uban ride across the river and a block from the station, super easy to get to. Everyone there was so friendly, from the guys behind the bar to the patrons having drinks. The chef was extremely nice and cooked me up an oil free Gnocchi, which was amazing and well beyond the caliber of bar food. We downed many organic Pinkus beers and had wonderful conversation to go along with the great food an drink. You can't miss this fun place while you are in Cologne! I only wish we could have stayed long!

Pros: FRIENDLY, great chef, good music

My Kind of Place - Edit

A little out of the way from Cologne city centre (U-Bahn from Neumarkt, get off at Kalk Kapelle; only a couple of minutes walk from here). The place is amazing and is run by a super friendly English speaking German guy who makes you feel extremely welcome. It's more of a local thing here, everyone in the neighbourhood probably pops in at some point during the week. They serve a lovely type of Kolsch and the range of food is great specialising in various types of burgers - the Tofisch burger is superb! (lots of vegan choice plus dairy free condiments such as mayo and tartare sauce). Vegan desserts are also served. Essentially, this is just great simple bar food with a special touch.

There is a strong music theme throughout, a table football game and numerous board games. Food is a bonus but not an essential here. The place opens at 4pm, starts to fill around 8pm and closes when the last person leaves which could be right until 6am. Truly amazing.

Pros: atmposphere, food, beer

Cons: smokey
