Hamburg is always worth a day trip especially in summer when there is a feeling of easiness in the otherwise so busy Hanseatic city. As we used to live in Hamburg for seven years we always try to come back here during the summer holidays. Last Tuesday we took the train in order to go on our annual shopping spree which is mostly connected with a visit to the Musicals. This time we went to see the show “Best of 2016” presented by the graduates of the Stage School of Hamburg in their brand new theatre called First Stage.
But let´s start with the best part of travelling .. the food!
When we arrived at the station in Hamburg we came across the CityDöner shop which is very popular. I asked for anything vegan and expected to see some eye-rolling or ignorance about the difference between vegan and vegetarian. But I was positively surprised when the shop assistant told me he could offer me two kinds of Börek – one filled with spinach and one with potato. I chose the spinach bored and was even more surprised when I had to pay only 1,10 Euro for it. It was huge, and utterly delicious! So this is truly an insiders´ tip. Unfortunately I was so hungry that I forgot to take a photo.
We had a great day, it was sunny, we had soy latte at Starbucks, the show was fantastic, the only negative thing was that our favourite restaurant “Waku Waku” had been closed. At the Waku Waku you could get delicious freshly prepared organic vegan wok dishes so let´s hope they will reopen their restaurant soon at another venue.
There are of course lots of restaurants which offer vegan food in Hamburg and another top notch place is the Syrian restaurant Saliba in the beautiful Alsterarkaden.
Dangast is a small village on the North Sea coast. It is not far from our hometown Oldenburg so when the weather is fine what could be nicer than to cruise to Dangast and enjoy a day at the seaside.
If you want to eat something vegan in Dangast you can either go to the old Kurhaus where they offer vegan cakes on Sundays or you can visit the Sonnendeck Dangast which has become a very popular place over the past few years.
The Sonnendeck offers for example cocktails, organic lemonade, sweet potato fries, and a very tasty and very filling vegan burger. There are often concerts in the evening or you can rent the whole facility for your party. Last year I even held a yoga class there.🙂
This was indeed a very special Sunday treat and we enjoyed our day at the sea a lot.
Now the summer holidays are over and it is back to school and work. If you are interested in my work please have a look onto my website
Maybe there is a course for you, too.🙂 See you soon!
Next time: another vegan recipe!
