Krakow Vegan Eats

Vegab

Many of the vegan places in Krakow offer fast food style food such as kebabs, burgers and hotdogs. By far the best kebab I had was from the cleverly names vegab! I went for the Olymp kebab that had, olives, sundried tomatoes, taziki, sprouts, seitan kebab and salad – which was really delicious.

We also tried the hotdog that is made from tofu which was good, albeit a bit small. We were lucky enough to get a seat inside, its only a small place and very popular. I had the mulled apple juice to warm up as I was freezing but I think that is just a winter offering. They also do a bounty cake for those with room for desert!

Market Food

I love Christmas markets. Despite Christmas markets not being a traditional polish Christmas celebration, the market in Rynek Glowny did not disappoint. Full of food and drink stalls and places to buy Christmas gifts. There were so many things on offer such as Polish dumplings, sourdough toast with onions andpickles, pretzels, sandwiches, chocolate covered fruit and more! It is always so lovely to explore the stalls with a hot cup of mulled wine.

 

 

Cyklop

Fancying something a little different we made our way to a little Italian restaurant near the main square. Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff, I had homemade tagliatelle aglio de olio, which was so delicious. It is amazing what difference fresh pasta can make to a meal! The waitress was so lovely and veganised the bruschetta for us and brought us extra olives.

Two Days in Berlin – A Vegan’s Guide

I spent a few days in Berlin recently and managed to work my way around a few of the vegan restaurants on offer! Berlin has a huge variety of vegan restaurants and café’s, so I was spoilt for choice!

Kopps

Kopps is a vegan fine dining restaurant in Berlin that is open on weekdays for dinner and on weekends for brunch. I went for the vegan buffet breakfast and the place was packed. You definitely have to book a table if you want to eat here!

The selection of food was amazing, there was cheeses, vegan salami, bread, pretzels, hummus, lots of different salads, tofu scramble, stroganoff, greens, fruit, mousse, chocolate spread, pancakes, stewed fruits, cakes and I’m sure I’ve forgotten some dishes! Everything was fresh, hot food hot and dishes were constantly replenished. I was really impressed! I think this was the best vegan breakfast buffet I have ever been too.

The buffet costs €15, not including drinks or tips. The only down side was that the service was not the best and they don’t provide tap water. However I would definitely recommend trying this place out!

Lia’s kitchen

Lia’s kitchen is a 100% vegan fast food restaurant with a few tables for dining in. You can choose from four completely different burgers or five big salad bowls. There is also a kids meal and extras to choose from.

We went for the chicken cheeseburger and fries that had seitan strips, ‘feta’ cheese, roasted paprika peppers, rocket, mayo, chilli sauce and homemade fries. We also tried the chicken strips salad that had seitan strips, lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, radish and balsamic vinaigrette. The seitan was some of the best I have ever had, everything was made fresh, portions were generous and all for a very reasonable price. It was really great to see a fast food place offering up healthy choices and a good variety of dishes

I would definitely recommend this place. I wish it were closer! I would definitely make it one of my regular dinner spots!

Momos

I cannot resist dumplings. I think most of the menu is vegan, with four different dumpling combinations to choose from we went for; brocilli, shitaki mushroom and tofu; potato, cabbage and carrot; pumpkin and chickpeas.

Prices are pretty reasonable with 18 dumplings for €10.90, although you have to pay extra if you want half steamed half fried! We arrived pretty late so grabbed a takeaway box, the only problem was trying to identify which dumplings were which when they were all in the same container!

Curry at the Wall

We headed to Curry at the wall as they offer vegan currywurst and bratwurst! Currywurst and bratwurst are must haves in Germany so I was excited to see that there was somewhere to get vegan versions!

Both were really good, it was a fast and cheap meal that was also very welcome in the cold December weather! If your in the area definitely check it out!

Grains & Berries

I stumbled across Grains & Berries at the Christmas market in Markthalle 9. They make homemade muesli, energy balls and I had the homemade raw snickers.

It was a perfect snack and the owners running the stall were so nice and friendly. They also have a regular food truck!
