Guten Tag! Heather The Happy Blogger here coming to you from our happy apartment in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin, Germany. Even though the weather’s a bit gray and gloomy today, inside the surroundings are warm (thanks to the radiator) and pretty bright. We’re off later today to the modern art museum to explore a bubble exhibit. Supposedly they’re big enough to crawl in and around. This should be a blast!
I have to say that in a country like Germany where sausage and schnitzel are dietary staples, I’ve been relishing in the abundance of veggie offerings. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried a lot of meaty meals since I’ve been here but they fail to treat my body well. Without going into the gory details, let me say that it takes about two days to recover after I eat meat. It’s not pleasant.
I love going into a restaurant and honing in on the vegetarisch section of the menu. Most restaurants have a whole section dedicated to veggies and if they don’t, then most are kind enough to mark near the entree option using a “v” or “veggie”. It’s bliss! I’ve also become proficient at translating the German words for various veggies into English. Some of my favorites are zwiebel (onion), aubergine (eggplant), and champignon (mushroom)–they’re fun to say and they keep my brain in shape.
One of my favorite veggie restaurants is here in Friedrichshain and it’s so close that we can walk to it. In fact, we’ve been there twice in less than a week. It called YoYo Food World and they serve some of the best veggieburgers and vegan pizza I’ve ever had! The service is fast and the food is fresh and delicious. The burger I ate had spinach and cheese baked right into it all on a toasted sesame bun piled with more veggies and ketchup. The vegan pizza had plenty of gooey cheese which tasted like the real deal along with fresh tomaten (tomato) sauce and toppings. The crust was chewy but not too soft. Delish! I’m getting hungry writing all of this and am glad it’s almost time for lunch!
