I know, I know, the hamburger is more of a Hamburg thing but I didn’t visit Hamburg, I went to Berlin and I’m about to tell you something so true it might change your life forever. Berlin is the city where vegan dreams come true. It has an entirely vegan supermarket chain, you won’t be able to walk down a road in Kreuzberg without encountering at least one vegan restaurant, there’s even an all-vegan sex shop but there is nothing as heavenly as a good ol’ veggie burger from the vegetarian capital of the world.
Lily Burger This burger and steak joint serves both meat, vegetarian and vegan options and each menu is as extensive as the last. Choose from a variety of burgers, named after classic films such as ‘The Godfather’ and then choose a height. Yep, for a hefty price, you can consume a burger that is literally the height of a small child and leave with a sense of pride like no other. Still not satisfied after all that burger? Don’t worry. Lily Burger is one of the only places in the city that will serve vegan deep fried chocolate bars. Snickers, Twix, Mars Bars, all are veganised here and deep fried for your enjoyment.

Tofu TussisLocated in Markthalle Heun for Street Food Thursdays is Tofu Tussis’s main base. Not only do they ferment their own tofu in house, they use fresh ingredients up to the standards of the hungry foodies at the market. Choose the colour of your bun and if you’d like any spicy toppings and you’re ready to experience my favourite burger in Berlin. Nope, the world. Trust me, this is something to rave about.

Vego FoodworldLong gone are the days of limited vegan choices on menus. Vego Foodworld (you might recognise the brand’s logo as being that delicious but expensive German chocolate and yep, you’re correct in assuming they’re part of the same brand) has options to fulfil anyone’s desires. The menu is so extensive they have 20+ different kinds of vegan burgers from Hawaiian to faux chicken, faux fish, faux streak, classic veggie, seitan, tofu, the works. Whatever you like, Vego Foodworld will surely have a burger to suit your needs.
