Vegan Products in Berlin?

Delray's Finest
Hi All,

I have a friend in Berlin who will be visiting me here in Boston in about a week. I'm considering asking him to bring me back some vegan products that are available there but are not available here in Boston. Anybody have any favorites that they know of? It'd help if they're fairly easy to find - he's not vegan at all, so I don't want to send him on too much of a wild goose chase!

I have seen comments in vegan forums by Germans lamenting the lack of decent vegan pate outside of their country. I reckon they might have a pretty good range there, so you might ask him to bring you some pate!

There are some great chocolates here by Lindt and Zotter that are vegan.

What type of food would you be more interested in? I usually cook with fresh ingredients so am not really all that knowledgeable in terms of convenience foods or foods you can easily take with you. It would also depend, as I wouldn't know which products I love (such as falafel mix, polenta, etc.) aren't easily accessible in Boston.

There is a vegan supermarket called Veganz here, you could send your friend there and ask him to ask the staff for typically German products. I am sure they will happily help him choose some products. They do carry stuff like Parmezano (sp?) etc. though, so he shouldn't just go there and grab whatever he sees. Here is a link to the store's contact info: http://www.veganz.de/kontakt/ The store is located in Prenzlauer Berg.

the "veganz" store sushineko mentioned is the best vegan store here.
