I fell in love with the place and would probably still be there if my partner spoke German.

There's a good Kumpir (Turkish baked potato, better than it sounds) place near Sternschanze. There's a good restaurant called Oma's Apotheke near there, too.

At the top of Europa Passage (shopping centre in the city centre) there's a pretty amazing ice cream place. I think most of the fruit ones were vegan... try the ice cream spaghetti! There's a good two-for-one coffee shop behind Europa Passage and near the main station, but it's always heaving. There's a good vintage clothes shop next door... Oh, there's a bar called ALEX that does food by the lake by the Rathaus (you can't miss it). There's a nice sushi place nearby as well, but I can't remember where.

There was an organic supermarket near Altona station that sold vegan stuff, none of it that exciting. Reformhaus is a chain health food shop with some vegan things. There's a really awesome falafel place in Altona, but it's sort of down a little side-road.

General advice: "Eiweiß" looks like it means egg white as "Ei" is egg and "weiß" is white, but it generally just means protein. "Soja Eiweiß" is soy protein (not soy egg white). "Eier Eiweiß" is egg protein/egg white.

Warning: There is no guarantee that hummus does not have mayonnaise stirred into it.

Germans are wimpy when it comes to chilli and spices. English "mild" is German "hot" (scharf).

Due to marvellous purity laws, all German beer is vegan I believe. Try Astra, it's nice and it's local.

Nice place, good food. Bring cash since they don't accept cards (seems to happen alot in Germany :) ) and its really cold to try and find an atm in mid December.

If your're looking for vegan restaurants, there are the "Leaf" and the "Loving Hut".

Otherwise Hamburg has a variety of Indian restaurants. You should be able to get something vegan there.

Went there for my Wedding dinner years back. I was rather disappointed :wink:

Im in Hamburg atm and there is a lot of good stuff at the St.Pauli/Schanzen-Viertel. Also elsewhere. Those guys have a good collection of restaurants etc.:

Ive been to Slim Jims at "An der Schilleroper 1-3" for Pizza. Its alright. I find Zeus Pizza better, cause the Hamburg stuff is very dry ;) ...crisp?...i dont know...


Also there is a cafè in the Schanzenviertel. Its called "Die Eisbande" at Bartelstraße 7. They have snickers ice (which i ofc tried :) ) and such funky stuff. But again...its alright. -Its a curse to have lived in Berlin!!! :mrgreen: ...


Then there is the "Deathpresso" at Beim Grünen Jäger 24 mentioned (its "kopiba" on google maps). They serve good coffee and its right next to the best Thai in town :mrgreen: ...I forgot the name. If you stand infront of it, its on the right.
going Indiana Jones the next days for new stuff. Anyone found anything besides the already mentioned??

I was researching a part of Hamburg i wanna visit tomorrow and i found an unexpected article. It about vegan/organic wine from Bergedorf, Hamburg. The guy who makes it collaborates with a northern area drugstore called "BUDNI" (where it is sold). So the wine costs about 8-12€. The "Rotsporn" , how the wine is called, goes back to the 13th century. :shock: ...It makes sense, that cultivating wine is tried anywhere, but i kinda thought Hamburg was just too northern for professional stuff. They make 20.000 bottles a year. They say it tastes/smells fruity, like dark berries with a scent of green pepper.

But i couldnt find anything interesting -food wise- for that area. :? ...Its the part of Hamburg where i went to school. So i guess its just gonna be some nostalgic stroll with a bit of shopping ;) ...

Oh...and dont forget the "Franzbrötchen" (kind of cinnamon rolls) from "Kamps" (bakery) in Hamburg...theyre vegan (just those in Hamburg)!!! (and SOOOO there are!)

Got some coffee at the Deathpresso café today. Theyre sooo friendly and fun there :) ....tiny portugues people seem to own the best mood there is, even if it gets crowded and hectic ;) ... I even saw a vegan carrot/banana cake and a vegan quiche there. The quiche looked really good! So it looks like they got vegan food as "normal" food there now. That was a great discovery. Last time being there is quite a while back. Vegolution ;)

Also i went to the Schanzenflohmarkt (flea market) not far away at Neuer Kamp 30. They got really cool stuff there. Much better "old" quality than in Berlin ;) Berlin it sometimes seems to be stuff from the trash sold for a fortune ;) ...Anyways...i thought it was worth mentioning since its quite a Saturday thing in Hamburg.

And at Eisbande i got some icecream. But their stuff didnt really improve. So it was a sugar bomb with okay flavor ;) .... (The red signs are vegan. its stuff called strawberry cheesecake, cookie, schniggas (snickers), mousse au chocolat, pistachio, "flower power", vanille and matcha/mint)

To the Hansa-Park at Sierksdorf on the Ostsee (about 50min. from eastern Hamburg) i went on a Friday with a rather cloudy, yet not rainy weather. And it was really empty :mrgreen: ...and SO MUCH FUN....if you dont have to wait 30min. to go on a roller coaster and you can just go again since there is no one there: AWESOME!! :) ...Then its easier to get over the adult entry of 32€. :shock: ...Kids till 14 go for free. Anyways....the "Curse of Novgorod" was just INSANE!! :shock: ...and the rest of the stuff is also fun and "done" in about 3 hours (of not waiting)....Id loved it as a kid, and i still think its an awesome amusement park!! :) ImageImage

Back to HH...for musicians: There is an old music store called Rotthoff at Neuer Pferdemarkt 31. They (sometimes ;) ) sell old instruments, analog gear and microphones which are very high quality. But mostly the owner prefers to rent things to musicans and movie studios. (for free) ;) ...he doesnt like to give things away it seems. But its really worth visiting. I dont think it gets more real ;)

Glad to head home tomorrow ;) ...i hate not having "Spätis" anywhere. I need to buy stuff at 3am. Especially pizza at Zeus :mrgreen:
