On our last day in Hamburg we ate at a great little restaurant. Golden Temple Teehaus is an organic vegetarian/vegan joint that serves mostly vegan food and desserts. Also a tea house, the place is decorated with buddha statues, creating an ambience of peace and calmness. Although the calmness dissipates as the space gets filled with the hubbub of people; it’s quite popular and we were lucky to have missed lunch rush hour.
Golden Temple serves healthy and delicious curries, waffles, quiches, sweet breads and desserts. We both ordered the vegetable lentil curry served over basmati rice, garnished with cilantro, sesame seeds and soy cream. It was really good, and it warmed us up from the cold.
For desserts, we ordered our own plate of waffles topped with powder sugar and a cassis sauce. It was scrumptious.
On our way out we grabbed a quiche and dessert (plum crumble bar) to-go for a light dinner on the train ride back to Berlin. Both were very yummy.
If ever in Hamburg again, we will definitely return to the Golden Temple.
