We learned about Kernvoll when we opened Happy Cow’s website and noticed that there was a new place in the “near me” section – just a few streets away from our home. After having a look at their website, it turned out that this was not only an ordinary vegan restaurant, it seemed to be a whole concept. They offer catering, brunch and even a vegan clothing brand named Organic Tailoring. As you already might have suspected, everything from
We also saw that one couldn’t just spontaneously go there whenever you want to – they only have open two or three times a week, of which one of the days you will have to order in advance. Therefore, it took a while unti we finally managed to come to their weekly Pizza Friday (or #pizzafreitagas Kernvoll itself calls it). Let’s put it like this: it was worth waiting for.
Everything is homemade. The fresh pizza bread made of spelt, the creamy vegan cheese and they even had lemonade made of home-cooked syrup. The very friendly service told us all about their menu and made suggestions of what to choose. You really got the feeling of being taken care of as a guest – we even got some fresh, homemade pizza buns as a starter. We ordered a shared plate with slices of all the three pizzas they currently had on their menu. The mushroom & caramelized onion was sweet, yet savoury, the olive & fresh tomato had such a wonderful basil pesto, while the slices with arugula, cherry tomatoes, pomegranate & cashew parmesan were genius, with a perfect balance of sweet and sour.
So, what are your plans for next Friday? If you are already booked, you should at least go there the Sunday after – then they have brunch and vegan cakes. I already know that we will have a sweet tooth by then…
