I love Germany. Not that my love for Germany is a big secret. I definitely love the USA, too (it's home), but I've always been delighted to be half-German. The culture, the food, the fashion...
But speaking of the food, Germany hasn't always been the most vegetarian-friendly country, as far as restaurant fare goes. If you're making your own food, you're fine. But if you like eating out, or if you're vegan, you're in a bit of a tight spot.
That's been changing in recent years and, even in small locales like Hildesheim, vegetarian eateries are becoming more and more widespread. I think that's great!
Here are the places that, in addition to my beloved Reformhaus Bacher, I have to visit when I'm in Germany later this summer!
Pretty much everything on their menu, from the veggie burgers to the quark dishes (not vegan) to the veggie sausage salad sounds amazing. I'm going to have to go there several times, so that I can try it all!
I'll have to go with my mom, it sounds like the kind of place she would really enjoy, too.
It's open 10am-8pm Monday-Friday and 10am-4pm on Saturday. It's closed on Sunday.
I love health food stores, so I'll have to visit it!
This one is the exception to the general opening times rule. It's open 9am-6pm Monday through Sunday!
That's good, because y'all know I want my ice cream every day of the week.
Do I have any German readers reading this right now?
What's the yummiest vegetarian restaurant you've ever been to in your whole life? Anywhere in the world goes!
Are you going anywhere this summer? If yes, where?
