Rumours travel fast – after we heard about the vegan fried egg at the new vegan Thai restaurant Thai Vegan (pronounced lii-gay) near Boxhagener Platz, it didn’t take a long time until we let our feet take us there. The most likely first all-vegan Thai in Berlin opened just a few weeks ago and met us with friendly service and a very vibrant interior full of writings on the walls in their local language. You immediately got the feeling that you just as well could have been at any restaurant in Bangkok. When our eyes glanced at the menu, we decided to take five small bowls of different dishes with the vegan fried egg as an extra option. Wow, really know their way how to handle tofu – crispy fried on the outside, soft on the inside. Though a small warning is needed for the more sensitive people – it was spicy! And Warning no. 2: the food was so good, the spices really married each other (especially the curries), so you will want to come back several times to try everything, and then have it again, and again …

Are you ready for cosy candle lights, hot tea and sweet cakes? To be honest – we are not, but a doughnut from Brammibals Donuts can cheer anyone up. Fluffy on the inside, sticky on the outside, crusty on the top – just like a really good doughnut should be. Chocolate peanut fudge, fruity blueberry swirl or something more exotic like a banana cherry; You can choose anything you want, and we’ll promise that you won’t get disappointed. These are the kind of sweet desserts that can make anyone gasp, asking out load: “Is this really vegan?”. Yes, it is! As the finishing touch, they serve coffee with oat drink from legendary Oatly, which is the best coffee “milk” you could ever dream of. Or do like us – have an ice cold Oatly Matcha Latte and bring your vegan doughnuts home to your warm couch. It’s the perfect company to hide with under your quilt.

Well, now we know where you are heading today. They have three different locations around Berlin, sometimes accompanied by a food truck at some market in town. You can drool even more on their webpage:
