When I went to Mannheim, I had lunch at the vegetarian restaurant Heller’s. It is very nearby the train station. You have a cold and a warm buffet, ingredients are clearly marked and you have vegan labels for quite a lot of dishes.
I had rice, carrots and some kind of vegetables pancakes. To be honest, I did not like it very much. It was not tasty and quite “oily”.
So I went to VogelFrei for dessert and I had a wonderful tart with lemon and almonds… so delicious. it saevd my day 🙂
The Xmas markets in Germany are called Weihnachtsmarkt – they open the last weekend of November which is also the first week of Advent. Each town and village has stalls, arty gifts, local animations, sausage smell and glühwein (hot wine). This is my first Christmas of Germany so let me show you a few Christmas markets in my area – let’s start by the one in Mannheim.
I went to the normal one but there is another one in the town center, dedicated to kids with a very brothers Grimm spirit 🙂
I love my colleagues – they are very open to new ideas and when I proposed them to go to the vegan cafe VogelFrei in Mannheim, they were very excited.
We had a good time there. This is a cosy place to relax and to work (free wifi). And of course, there is the food…
We had pasta, pizza and tarts – all vegan and all delicious.
For desserts, we shared a strawberry cake, a brownie and a cheesecake with organic teas and vegan beers. I’d like to organise more business lunches like this one 🙂
I was in Mannheim a few days ago and we really wanted to try this vegan restaurant, named after “Löwenzahn” which means dandelion.
Nice place based in a residential area. We ordered the gaspacho soup, very fresh and yummy, the risotto and the gnocchi. I did not like the risotto, am not sure why, maybe because of the herbs they used… but the gnocchi were wonderful.
Unfortunately, plates were too big so no more room for dessert… aarrgghh. Next time.
