Berlin has become the European vegan paradise in my opinion a few years ago and every time I visit the city – which I do quite often – there’s some place I haven’t been yet, which makes my trips there even more exciting. Yes, I also travel for vegan food. A few weeks ago I was there and went to Let It Be, a vegan crêperie, located at Treptower Strasse.
The place isn’t that big but very cozy and with a special corner for kids, which is a big plus in my case. It’s a bit rustic and informal, which I absolutely love. I went there with my son, my best friend and her daughter and boyfriend and it was great that we didn’t have to wait on a Saturday evening as kids were starving.
Their menu is really good, offering a way more than crepes (sweet and savoury): pancakes, burgers, sandwiches, sides, cakes and desserts. No need to say how excited I am when eating in a vegan place and not having to worry about what I can eat or not. Besides the fact that the menu is very attractive, the names of the food are awesome. Not everyone will get all references but it is really cool. I still want to go back there to have my “Ian Mackaye” sweet crepe.
Your make your order in the balcony and staff is very friendly. I went for the “Woody Harrelson” savoury crepe (ham, cheese, leek and cream sauce) and ordered a “Peter Dinklage” sandwich (homemade falafel patty, hummus, dried tomatoes, homemade kurkuma sauce served with salad, carrots and sprouts) and wedges to my son. You can order the burger without the bread, with I did, and they add grilled zucchini and dips to it.
My crepe was delicious. Portion is very large and it comes with salad. My friend said she had better ones – with more cream was her comment – before there but as I couldn’t compare I found it delicious. But I can agree that if it was creamier it would be nicer!
The burger plate was huge and very well presented. My son ate a lot but still left enough for me to finish and everything I tasted was very tasty. I really loved the falafel patty. Considering that I had my meal before I couldn’t finish it all so I asked a take-away container to take the rest home.
I wish I had any space left in my belly for a sweet crepe or cake or dessert but I didn’t. So I will have to go back to Let It Be to try a bit more of their great vegan menu.
Prices were very fair too (food in Berlin is a way cheaper than in Dublin and I always feel it’s a fair price for food there). It was a lovely experience, with adults and kids having a great time, and I really recommend it.
