So here we are, hungry vegan food hunters tracking down a colorful flyer promise of non profit, 100% vegan food that we found hanging on the blackboard of our favorite of all yoga studios: Jivamukti. Arrived in Hackney with roaring stomachs we don’t get disapointed of the menu – no we are in sheer delight of all the variety that is offered here! There is so much that we want to try, so we decide to take three main menus and starters and share them between us. Whilst we eagerly eye the cakes on the counter we know It will take a looong time until we leave this place and we get comfortable with a Hot Chocolate topped with marshmallows.

While we are waiting for our orders we explore the shop and find lots of bargains like a lovely Jutebeutel for 5 Pounds and a pizza cheese for 1.50.  You can find snacks, chocolate bars, faux meat and cheese, vegan household items and there is also a lot of interesting books about Veganism, Vegan cookery books or also anarchy literature. Everything is really cheap, of course because it is a non profit shop. Yeah!

The Main dishes are all really tasty and we feel that everything is homemade and fresh. We find out that we all three think that the Seitan Sandwich tastes outstanding good and we like the Lentil Pie with Mashed potato and Kale. The Burger is of course amazing as well. Its the first time for us to try a sausage baked in a bread roll and we wonder how this could happen?!

We can’t behave and order our cakes and brownies with whipped cream and large scoops of ice cream and have an amazing munch on the end of an amazing munch! Life is good with places like these! We are grateful to have found such an affordable, graceful, pleasure bringing institution and plan a return as soon as we can. meoooow!

Pêle Mêle Neukölln

Today I found a new amazing vegan place to eat in Berlin!! It’s actually in my old “Kiez” in Neukölln near Sonnen Allee!
I had a cake which was so tasty that if I would have had enough money with me, I would have ordered directly another time 😉
You can sit nicely outside or inside, there is free water and nice people working there!
If you are not in a cake mood you can order as well sandwiches, soups, salads, giabattas or just a smoothy or a shake.
Always the first Sunday of the month there is a brunch for 10 euro from 11-17h and all is 100% vegan and if possible organic, faire and from region.
A lot if reasons to go back for me for this brunch!! 🙂
Address:
Innstraße 26, Berlin Neukölln
Near underground station Rathaus Neukölln for example

Stuffed zucchini

Without a recipe and only with things I had at home I made this filed zucchinis, and they are actually really good!!
I used:

• 12 little zucchinis (for filling less if the bigger ones could be better)
• 1 tomato
• 150 grams of Tofu (I had even home made Tofu, the recipe you find also on this blog)
• 1 spring onion
• parsley
• salt, pepper, olive oil

Cut the zucchinis in halves and take a little bit out with a little spoon that you get little zucchini boats.
Cut the tomato and the onion in little pieces and mix it with the tofu till you have something like a cream. Put also parsley, salt, pepper and oil inside and give it in the zucchini boats.
Give breadcrumbs over all and also a little more olive oil and bake it for around 30 minutes with 200 degree.
I served it with rise, but also quinoa, couscous or potatoes could be nice!!

El Bambu Havana

This is one of the two real vegetarian restaurants, I could find in Cuba. It’s not really in the center of Havanna, actually more in the near of the airport and the taxi from the centre of Havana to there costs around 20 Euro. But it’s absolutely worth it! It’s inside a big botanic garden where you can relax and breath fresh air, for a change of the smoggy city life in Havana! Entry of the botanic garden is like 3 Euro and the bufett around 10 but with drinking included and you can eat as much as you want!

I was there on my last day as a stop on the way to the airport. If you do like this be sure you have enough time becuase when you arrive at the botanic garden you have to take a bus, which brings you there, but which also stops to show you plants 🙂 For it was my last day I was happy to find fried green bananas! A nice variety of special salads and even eatable blossoms made it a light and healthy lunch! There are also many vegetable dishes, rise with beans and tofu! Actually the first and only time i found tofu in Cuba. There were only one dish, pasta with cheese, which was not vegan, and they even for would have cooked me pasta with tomato sauce just for me insead of it. But it was already perfect like this for me!!

You are sorrounded of bambu trees and I think if you are not under time pressure, like I was, it’s nice to stay after lunch the rest of the day in the botanic garden!

The restaurant is open only for lunch from 12 till 17 pm an it’s drectly in Jardín Botanico Nacional, Havana Zona di Parque Lenin
