Fine japanese vegan cooking that is as equally pleasing to the mouth, eyes and soul. Highly recommended.Restaurateur Huy Thong’s busy vegan fast-food eatery Ryong on Torstraße couldn’t be further away from this latest endeavour of his: Based on zen buddhist shōjin ryōri cooking philosophy, chef Martin Müller and his crew craft beautiful and tasty vegan plates from mainly local and seasonal ingredients. The sophisticated and astoundingly beautiful dining room (in a former ballroom, tucked away in the back of a quiet hinterhof) acts as a serene backdrop to the dishes. It’s hard to imagine you are a minute away from the busy Invalidenstraße. The service is low-key, classy and unfussy. The wine list is centered around quality Rieslings from the Pfalz - and sake. Oukan Dining’s ”tea sommelier” has also created an interesting tea-pairing option for those who wish to have an alcohol-free experience. The restaurant serves a 7-course and a 3-course pice fixe -menus, which can be supplemented with restaurant’s staples, such as potato millefeuille with truffle (not very japanese, I guess, but a great umami-boost to the gently spiced dinner) and lightly smoked, deep fried mushrooms with cauliflower. Oukan Dining is a welcome addition to the narrow high end of vegan/vegetarian dining in Berlin, populated previously by Cookies Cream, Kopps and - possibly - Frea.

A very modern space with veggies on the forefront. Food had a lot of South American influence but not limited to it. Bread was incredibly delicious, especially with the cacio e pepe-flavoured butter! Interesting dishes with a good palete. Go with a few people so you can order a variety, some of the veggie mains might get a little dull if eating most of it yourself. Starters were spot on, fish main was perfectly cooked. We had non alcoholic beverages which were tasty but the wine list looked interesting! Appealing space with an open kitchen, friendly staff and a nice vibe.

Kanaan

Schliemannstraße 15

Schliemannstraße 15, 10437 Berlin, Germany

Kanaan is a popular spot for Israeli-Palestinian cuisine, particularly known for its hummus. The restaurant offers a vegan-vegetarian menu, featuring fresh salads, hummus dishes with various toppings, and homemade baked goods. It's a welcoming space that employs refugees from the Middle East and Africa, promoting an environment free from racism, homophobia, and transphobia.

Recommended by

Among all the falafel and hummus shops in Berlin, Kanaan might have the biggest following. On a residential street in Prenzlauer Berg, this slightly shabby restaurant serves an Israeli-Palestinian menu. Hummus is the thing here, so for an easy pick skip the falafel and start with the mixed starter plate with filled vine leaves, beet root salad and baba samir. Add Israeli hummus with chopped egg, potato, egg plant, mango sauce and pickles, grab a pita bread and go!

Fun and delicious vegetarian restaurant with an innovative cocktail bar. Recent vegetarian addition to Berlin’s Michelin guide occupies a beautiful pre-war corner space in Schöneberg, not exactly known for its culinary offerings. The restaurant has a large cocktail bar that occupies at least a third of the space. It also serves as a dining space for couples. Groups of four and upwards are seated in tables. The bar seats were great, offering views of the kitchen in the back and the creative bar itself. The food is simply stunning. And very tasty. I was recommended this restaurant for years by friends, but somehow I’ve managed to miss it. Now I’m kicking myself, as it is guaranteed to be packed for years to come. As it should be.Presentation of the food is as beautiful as it is impeccable. The main menu is lacto-ovo vegetarian, but vegan option is available. The ingredients are fresh, seasonal and of high-quality. There are two menu options: A five-course and a six-course one. For the quality of food, the prices are agreeable. Service is unfussy, personal and informative. The young staff is very friendly and fun. We loved the experience. The feel of a cocktail-bar makes Bonvivant a truly unique. As does pairing of the dishes with cocktails (instead of wines, wines are available. All german but the champagne). Non-alcoholic option is available. Apparently, the Michelin star came as a complete surprise to the owners and staff. Based on my experience of the food, service and cocktails, it is hardly surprising. The fact that such an informal and (positively) quirky restaurant got a star is a positive sign of sometimes stuffy Michelin -reviewers’ changing taste. Highly, highly recommended!

The Butterfly Lovers

Veteranenstraße 10

Veteranenstraße 10, 10119 Berlin, Germany

The Butterfly Lovers is a popular vegan Chinese restaurant, known for its fusion of Sichuan, Taiwanese, and Hu Cai cuisines. The food served here is not your typical vegetarian fare, but an elevated experience that has made this restaurant a must-visit. Despite its modest interior, the place is often bustling, so it's advisable to book in advance, especially for dinner.

Recommended by

Addictive vegan chinese restaurant in MitteRestaurateur Wen Wang’s vegan mother (apparently) was the main motivation for opening of this restaurant in Mitte in 2021, in a quiet corner next to Volkspark am Weinbergsweg. The ”mixed chinese” cuisine has influences from Sichuan, Taiwanese and Hu Cai kitchens and it does it all very well. The food served is well above the run-of-the-mill ”ethnic” vegetarian restaurants that are plentiful in Berlin . The spartan interior design may mislead people looking in from the outside, but it is the food that brings people here - and it is solid gold. The restaurant has become so popular that an advance booking is a must for the evenings. The restaurant also serves lunch, which should make finding a seat easier. The food is best served with beer - or with the excellent homemade juices - so there’s no reason to discuss wine specialities. The prices are a bit above what you would expect to pay, but very affordable nevertheless. The Butterfly Lovers won’be featured on any ”best of…” -lists anytime soon, but it serves some of the best chinese vegetarian cuisine in Europe and you’re not going to be sorry for booking a visit.

Charming and approachable fine dining in Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg. Michelin-starred with a laid-back atmosphere.Restaurant Bricole, located in Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood, is a culinary gem that has transformed from a neighborhood eatery into a Michelin-starred fine dining establishment. Despite its accolades, Bricole has managed to maintain its casual and down-to-earth ambiance.Bricole offers a 6-course tasting menu priced at €112, with an optional wine pairing for €64. Vegetarian alternatives are also available upon request. Each dish presented at Bricole is a masterpiece in itself, carefully crafted with a focus on quality ingredients and flavors. From the salt-cooked beets with black currant and dill to the flambéed sturgeon with fava beans and pine cone, every plate tells a story of culinary expertise and creativity.One standout dish from the vegetarian menu is the sautéed chanterelles with cauliflower, truffle, and pumpernickel. Fabian considers it not only a visually stunning creation but also one of the most delicious offerings. The rich flavors of the mushrooms, combined with the creamy cauliflower foam and freshly shaved black truffle, make it a highlight of the evening.The main course features Onglet, a lesser-known cut of beef from the diaphragm region. The tenderly cooked Black Angus Onglet is complemented by grilled leeks, olive cream, and cassis with celery. The accompanying jus poured at the table adds an extra layer of depth to this exceptional dish.For dessert, Bricole pays homage to Berlin's beloved "Pfannkuchen" (pancakes) with cherries from Bauer Riedel, cherry sorbet, yogurt cream, doughnuts, and buckwheat. Alternatively, a selection of cheeses can be chosen to conclude the meal.To enhance the dining experience, Fabian curates a wine selection that elevates each course. Though a comprehensive wine review is beyond the scope of this article, it is worth mentioning that the wine pairings at Bricole add an extra dimension to the already exceptional culinary journey.In conclusion, Bricole is a culinary gem in Berlin, offering a monotonously exceptional dining experience where every dish is a highlight. Despite its Michelin star, the restaurant maintains a laid-back and welcoming atmosphere. The combination of Chef Steven Zeidler's innovative yet unpretentious cuisine and Fabian Fischer's warm hospitality make Bricole a destination worth seeking out.

Finding good lunches in Berlin can be a bit difficult. I'm always saying that Berliners are still sleeping during lunch. Goldadelux is run by two Israelians, they are based on Erkelenzdamm and they do good vegan and vegetarian stuff, like sabich and other filled pitas. It's fresh and healthy fast food, which is quite different to what you normally see. I always have the Chai there, they do it by themselves and I really love it.

Hallmann und Klee is a Berlin-based restaurant, initially known for its breakfasts, but now also serving evening meals. The menu, put together by a team of women, offers a quiet, relaxed cuisine with a strong emphasis on vegetables, using both locally sourced and imported ingredients. Alongside the food, the restaurant also boasts a modern natural wine list, noted for its affordability and quality.

Recommended by

I’ve had really beautiful experiences at Hallmann und Klee, which is a restaurant on Richardplatz in the far South East of Berlin. You'll have a bit of a journey there from central Berlin. It's a restaurant that started as a breakfast place only during days, and nowadays they do evenings. I think there's only women working there and the food is made with both local and some imported produce. They serve a fine, not very loud cuisine with a big vegetable focus. The dishes are relaxed. The wine list is modern natural - you can for sure find something really nice and the prices are way too cheap, I first thought, but then Hallmann und Klee is not located in the expensive center of the city.
