I'm still making my way through this video & would love to read the thoughts of any of you who've spent time in Berlin recently - it definitely seems amazing!! :D

i rarely go there, its kind of awesome but also part of the gentrification process of replacing cheaper shops with high end places aimed at the more wealthy. In many ways it makes veganism seem quite inaccessible for some. I mean, for sure if you have the money and you go to Veganz you will have a fucking blast, its awesome in terms of selection and making veganism look like you wont miss a thing.

But most people i know cant afford to shop there.

So while its certainly part of the growth of veganism here, i think the bigger growth is in the increase of vegan options in more affordable places, or many of the other 28 fully vegan restaurants which are selling much more accessible food. Though many of the 28 are pretty posh too, not that there is anything wrong with that if we also have the alternatives :)

I'm definitely a lower budget working class Vegan myself but as long as their are fancy shops & such - they should at least be Vegan! Regardless, Berlin continues to seem better & better - I hear that there is even a Vegan Strength shop there! ;)
