Eat This: Best Vegan Burger Berlin

12th September 2019

veggie burger berlin

Lost in a vegan Burger Berlin maze?

I’m vegan burger-obsessed as much as I’m a health nut. If there’s a burger on the menu, it’ll trump any organic cardboardy bird food I’d usually go for. And to say Berlin has its vegan burger game down pat is quite the understatement. Every burger joints ha a vegan option. Scratch that. Every restaurant has a burger option has a vegan burger option. Berlin has more burger spots than native Berliners and my ambition to document every single vegan burger option in the city was quickly shut down by the pace at which places open and close. So, as the Berlin vegan burger scene ebbs and flows like a goddamn annoying breathing thing, this guide is getting updated with latest discoveries and classics not to be missed.

Best Vegan Burger Berlin: The Guide

Ryong

Ryong Berlin

I’ll be honest here, Ryong is sort of my favourite spot for a Tinder date. Amazing food that’s just the right amount of sophisticated and sloppy, great sexy decor, affordable prices, Ryong really has all the right ingredients for the night to progress from Korean burgers and Tiger beer to other, ahem, ventures. Back to the burgers though, these are some of the best I’ve had in some time. Deep-fried tempura Bao buns, juicy peanut sauce, edamame. YES.

Vincent Vegan

I wish Vincent Vegan had chosen a better location to finally set sail in Berlin, but I understand that they are trying to reach the mass, and I guess I a brand new shiny mall is the place to do that. The fact remains that the brand new East Side Mall is an eyesore like I’ve rarely seen one, and the only ever reason I will step food inside is to grab me one of the amazing Beyond Burger from Vicent Vegan. I’m sure everything else is also good, but that’s all I’ll ever eat from there, despite the hefty price, and despite the shitty location. That burger trumps everything else possible. Grab two or three, just in case and cross over to the East Side Gallery to eat them. Dare I say, the best veggie burger Berlin has to offer currently.

Lia’s Kitchen

Lia's kitchen Berlin

A newer joint in Prenzlauer Berg, Lia’s Kitchen has a cozy intimate vibe with great service and the burgers are simple yet bursting with flavorful ingredients. Try the Smokey BBQ Mushroom Burger or the Chicken Cheeseburger with their homemade vegan feta cheese (also found on their incredible Caesar salad). They also have chilli aioli for the fries that’s real yummy. Unpretentious and delicious food, all of it vegan. Yay!

TofuTussis

The Markthalle Neun transforms itself into a street food party every Thursday evening and I absolutely adore that place. In a corner hides TofuTussis, whipping some great vegan burgers Berlin style. They’re simple, but everything is super fresh (they make their own tofu!), the ambience is cool, and the buns are black! Grab a glass of wine and soak in the great food and atmosphere.

L’Herbivore

L'Herbivore best Vegan and best Vegetarian Burger Berlin

L’Herbivore is a super unique concept because it is, in fact, an all-vegan butcher shop with a bistro serving their products attached to it. All their patties are made of seitan and they have a broad selection of toppings for their super affordable burgers that can all be had as a standalone, in a “cheesy” or “crispy smokey” version, or as a full plate accompanied with a salad. The Preisel-Burger with jam was my absolute favourite, an exciting mix of sweet and salty with a meaty patty. Make sure you grab something from the butcher shop to take home!

Lily Burger

Now where to start. Lil hormonal, huh? You want a burger? You want a real-good-messy-huge-sloppy over-the-top burger? You want more like ten burgers stacked on one another and wrapped in vegan cheese and bacon? Well, chances are, Lily Burger has you covered. Without a doubt the most over-the-top veggie burger Berlin joint, those suckers are not only Instagram-worthy times a million, they are also freaking delicious. Mine came layered with onion rings stuffed in fresh jalapenos and corn tortillas. I mean. Zing!

Der Vegetarische Metzger

Der Vegetarische Metzger

Another fab option in Bergmannkiez, I stumbled on Der Vegetarische Metzger (The Vegetarian Butcher) by accident one day and instantly fell in love with the crispy chicken burger and the quirky stickers for the grabbing (my laptop is now famously sporting “Eat pussies not animals” on its front…) I’ve yet to go back to sample other burger options, but the crispy vegan chicken burger alone makes me put Der Vegetarische Metzger as one of my new favourites. SO SO GOOD!Def the best Chicken Vegan Burger Berlin has.

Yoyo Foodworld

All vegan, real unpretentious, casual, cool and super affordable joint in the heart of Boxi in Friedrichshain. Good staff, good crowd, good music, huge portions, and an amazing chili cheeseburger. You really can’t go wrong here, it’s vegan budget comfort food at its best. Order at the bar (beware, I am not kidding when I say the portions are huge) and wait for your number to be yelled back at’cha. It’s a bit rough around the edge, but that’s why I love it!

Café Bärbucha

cafe baerbucha berlin

Located in the lovely neighbourhood of Schöneberg, Café Bärbucha specializes in kombucha and all things fermentation. As well as offering an amazing selection of kombucha and lacto-fermented vegetables, the short menu oftentimes features a fantastic burger served with aged pickles and all the organic trimmings. The owners are also super lovely and always up for a chat. Definitely worth the detour!

    So. Many. Burgers! I’m heading to Berlin soon and will only have five days to eat as much of the vegan yumminess as possible. I’m going to have to force myself to leave room for something other than burgers on this trip!

    OH man! Should have seen your blog post before going to Berlin last time – but it was for business and I hope to be back hopefully next year or so. And oh hell yes, I am gonna try out a few of those! It’s so cool to see that there are so many vegan burgers. I live in a place where I am happy when I find something close to that. I am fasting now but dang….. will go for a burger soonish!

    I’m a meat eater from Texas, but by the looks of these photos, I would really enjoy a vegan burger. The one from Der Vegetarische Metzger looks just fabulous!

    I am a vegetarian and mostly happy with Vegan options. It is good to see that every burger joint has a vegan option. This is what the consumer demand can do – it has the power to change industries. Bookmarking this for as and when I visit Berlin.

    Wow, London is so behind on the vegan scene. It’s a big deal when a fully vegan place opens here. I eat meat but I have to say, all of those burgers look delicious. I think the L’Herbivore one tickled my fancy most!

    What a great blog post for vegans. Those burgers look delicious! I didn’t realise there are so many places to eat for vegans in Berlin. I go through periods where I only eat vegan, especially when travelling as it makes me feel more energetic. Handy list, thanks. I know so many people who have trouble finding vegan restaurants – I’ll pass this on and maybe Berlin might get a few more vegan visitors!

    You have made me drool! And I am not even into burgers that much. And I am not vegan. LOL. Especially the very first one you have featured – from Attila Hildmann’s Vegan Snackbar. Good to know that every burger place in Berlin has a vegan option – shows places are adopting a healthy approach to food.

    How fabulous that Berlin has such a commitment to providing Vegan options, especially at burger joints. I can understand why the burger at Attila Hildmann’s Vegan Snackbar is the best you’ve ever had – it looks divine! Though I would probably go to Lily Burger for that amazing mess of food! One of those things where I’m sure you weigh up whether to bite it or cut it first lol

I just wish I lived in Germany right now, I can’t have enough of these pictures. And your burger map, what is that????

    This is like a treasure for all vegan lovers. I am not a strict vegan-arian yet but am open to these dishes. I was drooling over the vegan crepe. Definitely going in for this when in Berlin.

    I love a burger and had no idea that Berlin had such a great burger scene going on – especially vegan! I’ll be honest and say I think Lily Burger takes the prize for me – man they look so good. I’m hungry now!

    Loved this guide — I am always on the lookout for the next vegan burger! Je présume que t’es une Canadienne francophone? Moi j’ai un lien avec le Québec haha, donc c’est bien cool de voir quelqu’un de là-bas ici à Berlin 🙂

    Very good website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that
    cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of
    community where I can get comments from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thank you!
