Vegan Berlin – Part 2

As promised here’s part two of our September trip to Berlin. In case, you missed it the first time – Vegan Berlin Part 1

Vegan Berlin – Part 2

Viasko by the time we made it to dinner it was already dark. We sat at an outside table under an umbrella, sheltering from the evening’s drizzle. I can’t remember if this is the reason we have no photos to show you now or if we just decided to not take any photos as we thought they would look pretty crap, as we’d have to use the flash. I can tell you that Adrian and Patrick both had the Seitan dish with Red Wine Jus then the and Tiramisu for dessert. The jus was too strong and salty and the cream was too heavy for the tiramisu. Kristina and I had the pasta dish and I don’t remember what we had for dessert. The staff was very cordial and the space was very cosy. I can’t give Viasko a raving review, but it’s worth checking back as the menu changes weekly.

Café Vux makes the most sublime cakes. As you can see from the pics below, we tried a nice selection including Lemon Poppy Seed Cake, Coconut Cheese Cake, Plum Cake and a Carrot Cake. I also ordered a tall soy latte. It was good going down and I don’t regret it, but I won’t do it again as I’m allergic to some soy milks. The space feels like a gallery, but in a good way. The cakes are kept in temperature-controlled displays. You wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between these vegan cakes and non-vegan cakes. Believe me, they are all delicious. They also sell cupcakes, soups, smoothies and bagels. The café is located in the Neukölln area, which is a little farther from the center, but this place is not to be missed.

If you need more of an incentive Sfizy Veg is in the same neighborhood as Café Vux, which presented a bit of a dilemma for us as it meant we had to eat our dessert before dinner. Oh well, no biggie. Sfizy Veg is the first 100% vegan pizzeria in Europe. The menu has 130 varieties of pizza in addition to calzones, pastas, paninis, salads, ice cream, fresh juices and smoothies. The pizzeria being packed, when we arrived and the crazy long menu with more pages than a small book, worked in our favor, but I still couldn’t finish my pizza. Adrian was more than happy to oblige.

Yes, it’s true Berlin is everything you’ve heard and then some. Über clubbing city, dynamic arts scene, rents cheaper than in almost any major comparable European or Western city and great cycle track infrastructure that makes it a joy to ride a bike. I think they call it – Freude am Fahrradfahren.

Perhaps, we can add contender for vegan foodie paradise to that list too.
