Vegetarian Meals in Germany

I have so much trouble travelling (and not being good at languages) in ordering good local vegetarian meals - any ideas of some good hearty veggie meals to order in Hamburg - and advice some good on restauarants to try where they offer a good veggie option ?

(don't really want to go with the cheese omlette option everytime)

Thanks so much all

In Austria my wife was delighted with the Bunte Gemuseplatte which is a huge pile of various veg well cooked and presented. It often comes with a Speigelei (fried egg). There are also various pasta, Gnocchi were particularly filling. I have seen relatively little of bean cookery in Germany, you may get green beans but I haven't seen the various protein beans much. (Bohnen is the word for beans, and the word for Vegetarian is similar but not identical - Vegetarische (veggy tare isher ) or similar so you will probably be understood both culturally and verbally).

In the south of Germany wherever I've eaten, be it a small village or a large city, typical or deluxe, there has always been a selection of 2-8 vegetarian dishes on the restaurant's menu. There are also other dishes that would suit a vegetatarian such as some salads, kaesespaetzle (cheese with noodles), and possibly other dishes. If you eat fish, there should also be a good assortment of fish on the menu.

Then there is always Italian restaurants with possible pizza and pasta options. You won't be forced to eat just cheese omelets.

Hi Ummy

A very good vegetarian restaurant in Hamburg is the Tassajara in Eppendorfer Landstrasse 4.

Another one is Gopalam (Indian cuisine) in Grindelallee 159, 20146 Hamburg.

However, most Restaurants do have a vegetarian categoy on their menu so you shouldn't have difficulties identifying the vegetarian meals.

A restaurant I really like and that does also have very good vegetarian meals on the menu is the "Marinehof" in Admiralitätsstrasse 77, 20459 Hamburg.

All 3 restaurants are located in interesting parts of Hamuburg.

In the Eppendorfer Landstraße there are quite a lot excuisite but nevertheless not too expensive shops.

The Grindelallee is near the university of Hamburg where you can find quite a lot of small coffee shops, restaurants etc. and of course many students.

From the Admiralitätsstrasse you can take a nice walk down to the harbour or to the Michel - the most famous church in Hamburg.
