The other week we were invited to Boyfriend’s colleague’s house for a beer night. It just so happened that we were in the same area as a vegan restaurant called Chimichurri, so we went to try it out!
If you are a visitor to Frankfurt, I’d say that this isn’t exactly easy to find or anywhere near the centre. After visiting Berlin I now know how important this kind of information is!!
The thing with restaurants like this is that I don’t know whether it’s wiser to pick a meal that obviously doesn’t contain meat from the start…like pasta with vegetables, or to go for a meat recipe which has been made vegan. I went for a vegan schnitzel with Frankfurt green sauce which was amazing. The green sauce was so good that I only forgot that it can’t contain eggs right at the end. I cobbled together some German and asked the girl what was in it and she said it was soya yogurt and herbs and liquidised tofu. It was really good, even better than the real thing.
Boyfriend had this pastry dish which had a lovely mango curry sauce with it. The meals were slightly on the small and expensive side and he did say that his one complaint would be that he was pretty hungry afterwards.
I give it 2 meat free thumbs up. Apparently the sunday brunch is also very, very good. We’ll have to check it out sometime…
