VEVAY: Frankfurt’s vegan safe haven

When I arrived in Frankfurt to visit my best childhood friend Toni, one of the first things she asked me was: „How strict of a vegan are you…?“
She told me that the quite conservative Frankfurt didn’t have a lot to offer when it came to restaurants for picky eaters, especially vegans. Many places that popped up selling „healthy stuff“ had to close again within months. But we accepted the challenge — and found a few good spots!

One of them was VEVAY (Vegetarian Vegan Yummy), probably the only vegetarian/vegan-only restaurant in Frankfurt so far. It’s located right at the heart of the city, the Willy-Brandt-Platz. I instantly felt at home, as the interior felt a lot like Berlin    except the unique feeling of being surrounded by skyscrapers.

As you would expect from a restaurant in Germany’s finance capital, the food was a bit pricy (maybe I’m just not used to it), but the creative dishes on the menu promised to be worth the money. There’s yummy things like Quinoa Spaghetti, a Barbecue Falafel Burger, or Goji-Cashew-Rice. We ordered two Protein Bowls and a Rice Noodle Papaya Bowl. For drinks, we had fresh homemade lemonades. Miriam was more than happy with her noodles. Unfortunately, even though it was very delicious, the bowls left Toni and me a bit hungry and unsatisfied.

But when we told the waitress, she reacted like an absolute sweetheart: She offered us hummus with bread (which we gladly took) and even gave us cake for free. Thanks to her hospitality, we really enjoyed our evening at VEVAY and can definitely recommend it to you!

ON THE MENU: Healthy bowls, burgers and asian-inspired noodle dishes. They also offer breakfast and a brunch on Sundays.

PRICES: Soups 5.50 €, main dishes about 10-15 €. Desserts about 4 €.

VIBES: Big city life, modern, with an oriental touch.

DOWNER: Don’t order the Protein Bowl if you’re really hungry.

PICKY NOTES: All vegetarian. Many vegan and gluten-free options

Tabea has been a picky eater since she was 4 years old, when she decided she didn’t like meat (except her grandma’s meat balls). The following years she continued to challenge her family and friends with many other weird food preferences. Founding Picky Eaters is her answer to the question: “What do you even eat?!” @tabeaim

  11. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, great website!

    I have noticed you don’t monetize, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra bucks
    every month with new monetization method. This is the best adsense alternative for any type of website (they approve all sites),
    for more details simply search in gooogle: murgrabia’s
