Berlin is known as one of the most vegan-friendly cities in the world. You can find several vegan restaurants in any area in Berlin, but our favorite place to enjoy vegan food is 1990. The Vietnamese restaurant which has been established a year after the fall of the wall is situated in Boxhagener Platz, Friedrichshain.


Even though you can find a kebab place on every corner of the street in Berlin, Mustafa’s is by far the most popular place to go to. While the queues might be considerably long, the quality of the food is superior to anything you have tried before. We recommend you to try the döner kebab which was founded in Berlin, Germany in 1972.


In 2006, Burgermeister opened its first restaurant in the former vintage toilet Kottbusser tor. Since then, it has established in different parts in Berlin. The chain-restaurant opens its doors at 11 AM and closes up at 4 AM, making it the perfect place for a late evening snack.
