1. W-DER IMBISS
DELICIOUS FUSION FOOD: good for having a date or meeting friends for dinner
Watch out the inverted McDonalds sign when you follow Kastanienallee. You can’t miss it – the good smell of spices will capture you! The unique dishes combine elements from Indian, Mexican, Californian and Italian cuisines – very innovative but indigenous fusion food. Only the freshest ingredients go into the vegetarian, vegan and salmon dishes – best for conscious eaters! Huge portions like the burrito or the warm salad with salmon are recommended. Naan heaven seems to be very close! There are drinks for superfoodies as well like fresh wheatgrass juice or apple juice with spirulina. Main dishes from 8-20 EURO.

VERY STYLISH & PURE – RAW – SUPERFOODS: good for hanging out or watching people walk by
You can’t run away from pure health, green juices and smoothies, nutrient-rich superfoods with the promise of organic ingredients – this location has an overdose of health and wholesome offers. Also the clientele who order here seems already healed by entering the door – everyone is so damn good looking, well dressed and very up to date when it comes to the newest trend of superfood. I was a bit overstrained but tried the quinoa dish with tomato pesto which indeed tasted more than healthy but surprisingly very delicious – great portion as well, so definitely worth the money – everyone is willing to pay a bit more when it comes to healthy and organic food. They offer breakfast, Acai Bowls, main dishes, salads – with lots of choice to combine (from 4,50-7,80 Euro).

This typical organic store offers vegetarian canteen food with good value for money. They have a weekly changed lunch menue. Try the vegetarian lasagne. In the summer you can sit outside in the garden where time stands still. No wonder the service has its own slow rhythm, so don’t come here when you are in a hurry (Daily soup: 4,50 – Lunch: 7,50).
