Found near the trendy Neukölln district of Berlin, Let It Be is a wholly vegan restaurant serving up burgers, dairy free cakes, cocktails and crepes. Known for their impressively stacked (but entirely meat free) burgers, we went along during our stay for my vegan friend's birthday meal. If you're looking for a vegan or vegetarian burger in Berlin, this is the place for you.
It's a small and intimate venue with a friendly independent feel and casual seating. Most items on the menu are named after famous vegans; think Woody Harrelson, Thom Yorke and Johnny Marr. As well as the vegan options, you can order a gluten free bun or choose a bunless option with grilled courgette instead. There are of course specials too, which at the time was Bryan Adams, a homemade beetroot chickpea and sesame patty with grilled turnip cabbage slices and homemade remoulade.
For the table we ordered a mix of burgers and their vegan mac and cheese. I went for the Chrissie Hynde, made up of a vegetarian burger, danish cucumber, homemade vegan mayo, mustard, ketchup and red onion. At €8.20 including chips, the portion sizes were incredible. Stacked up with a neat wooden skewer to prop it up, the huge burger still felt naughty whilst being packed with plant based offerings. The dairy free macaroni cheese was also pretty convincing, with a very creamy sauce and crunchy onion topping. Delicious!
Other burgers included BBQ soy steaks, black bean patties with homemade chipotle mayo and jalapeños and falafel burgers with sun dried tomatoes. Whilst the crepe offerings included apple sauce, cinnamon, agave syrup, peanut butter and bananas.
In all, Let It Be is a seriously good find. Vegans, veggies and meat eaters alike would love it for sure. Wholesome burgers, great combinations and convincing cheese. If you're ever in Berlin, get booked in!
