Vegan Zagreb part two: Burgers, sandwiches, raw cakes and self catering
My last post on Zagreb was all about the rather tasty restaurants that are available to herbivores in Zagreb, but there are some cheaper options if you fancy cutting the budget or you're self catering.
Zagreb is also home to the veggie burger bar Green Point, which has a number of vegan options. All the burger patties are vegan and there are soy milk milkshakes (if you specify agave rather than honey as a sweetner) to be had too.
You can get your burger to eat in at one of the counter-type tables, or take away. I was a bit trepidatious about the place due to some so-so reviews on Happy Cow saying the burgers were a bit bland, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I got a hemp burger and a banana soy milkshake. Here's the burger - it's roughly the size of my head:
Another cafe we discovered was the slightly more fancy-dan Vis à Vis by Vincek, just at the bottom of the Zagreb funicular. It's a cake and ice cream place, with a nice pavement terrace if you fancy idling a while and having a coffee.
About half the stuff inside is vegan, half omni (the Vincek ice cream parlour around the corner is all dairy, so make sure you dodge that one). The vegan cakes are marked but you'll need to ask the server for which ices are. When we went, there were four vegan choices, and I went for banana on the first visit - just the tonic for the mid-30 degree Zagreb heat.
Of course, given there was vegan cake on offer, we went back to try some out. Mr Flicking the Vs, one of those weird self-professed 'not a pudding person' people, wanted to try one, so they must be pretty tempting.
I got an all-chocolate affair, he went for a choc-and-orange combo:
