My first visit to Little Green Rabbit was after a successful escape game called “The Executioner” near Checkpoint Charlie.
The guy at the front desk at the escape game recommended the Little Green Rabbit to us. Thanks again at this point. He said it was vegetarian / vegan. Which is true for the most part. Many dishes are vegetarian and some vegan, but there are also dishes with meat or fish.
Where does Little Green Rabbit come from and where can you find the restaurants?
The stores in Jägerstrasse and Friedrichstrasse are often used for lunch by people from the surrounding offices. The one in Friedrichstraße – which is actually located on Mauerstrasse – is certainly also liked very much by tourists. Both are only open until 6pm (Status August 8, 2020, open only from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., that’s why I highly recommend to take a look at their homepage before visiting).
Therefore the latter one is also open on weekends. The branch in Moabit was located in the Schultheiss Quartier, a relatively new shopping center on Turmstrasse, on the corner of Stromstrasse, but was apparently closed due to unprofitability. There is a new addition on Unter den Linden, corner of Friedrichstrasse. The extremely favorable location should make this branch the most visited.
The “cash free” concept is not so common in Berlin yet. Up until the Corona crisis, it was very often the other way around, namely “cash only”. In the branch in the Schultheiss district, you could exceptionally pay in cash. In the other branches in Berlin-Mitte, the clientele is different and card payment apparently is not an issue.
You can now pre-order your meal online (until 11:30 a.m.) and pick it up on the same day. You will currently get a soft drink for free if doing so. This can also be done using the app. You pre-order with it as well and pay immediately. Here you will also get a soft drink for free (as of 08/2020).
The large selection of salads is great. It ranges from natural (vegan) to couscous (vegan) to goat cheese and tuna. Meat, fish and cheese can be exchanged for smoked organic tofu on request, making each salad a vegan dish. A side dish of either croutons, noodles or bread is for free.
Under this category you will find Chili con Carne, Yellow Thai Curry (vegan), Mulligatawny (Indian chicken soup) and Red Lentil Coconut (vegan). By the way, all soups are gluten-free. Especially at lunch time I find a warm soup something splendid. The small portion consists of two ladles, the big one of three. On request, you can have a portion of rice for only one euro extra. Bread is for free anyway.
Baked potato also known as Kumpir
The word Kumpir means foil or baked potato in Turkish. Interestingly, the word comes from the southern German Grumbier (ground pear, another word for potato) and made its way via German settlers in Southeastern Europe to Anatolia in Turkey. And has found its way to Berlin via this little detour. 😉
Kumpir seems to be a specialty of Little Green Rabbit, because the baked potatoes are available in several variations. “Calssic” with herbal cream cheese (Quark) is already available for 4.90 euros. The other versions are with feta cheese, couscous, quinoa (vegan) and salmon. For 2.90 euros you get an additional side salad.
There are also a few alcoholic drinks. Aperol Spritz, Caipi and Moscow Mule, for example, and a handful of wines and sparkling wine.
The prices are absolutely okay and for those who are not very hungry there’s a small portion of almost all dishes available. Especially around Gendarmenmarkt and Checkpoint Charlie you otherwise easily pay over 10 Euros for your lunch. Little Green Rabbit offers a cheap and healthy alternative in this area. The food is light and you can immediately return to the next big city adventure or your work afterwards.
