This chain is not recommended though because the food is expensive and not "biological" (i.e. comes from 'normal' farmers), and there's always a waste of packing material. Look for stores with `Bio-Laden' or `Naturkostladen' in their names, they're usually better. There are several guides of vegetarian restaurants in Germany around. You should get them in almost every `Bio-Laden'. | Mail Order: | | MUT - VEGAN VERSAND, Rabenstr.32 - 88471 Laupheim | Tel: 07392-80382 | - The VEGAN VERSAND is a distributor of Vegan products. | Vegans from all over Germany can order food, clothes etc. The | products are 100% vegan. Please order the catalogue. | | | | Augsburg | -------- | | Golden Goose Restaurant and Beer Pub | - Vegetarian-Friendly. Varied menu: the greater part of the menu was | vegetarian plus they had a huge vegetarian salad "bar" (buffet would | be a better name). Possibly vegan-friendly. | | Berlin ------ There are literally hundreds of health food stores in Berlin, especially in districts like Berlin-Kreuzberg, where the `alternative culture' is quite popular. There is a health food store or health food restaurant on every other street corner. There is also a wealth of vegetarian restaurants in Berlin. In addition Indian restaurants and pizzerias usually serve several vegetarian meals. There are numerous Indian restaurants in the center of Berlin. It might help to have a look into the Yellow Pages under the section `Gaststaetten'.
