One Planet is a fully vegan restaurant in Kyiv. It was in the fact the first fully vegan restaurant in Ukraine! The restaurant is located a bit away from the main street, and it is rather small. There is some place to sit, and I believe there is a terrace when the weather is nice. They do take-away as well.
One Planet serves burgers, soups, salads, drinks and desserts. There is a menu in English available. We tried the “black burger”, a burger of potatoes, bamboo and corn, served on a black bun, and a quasadilla with ‘vegan cheese’ made from soy and chick peas. There are not really any side dishes like fries or so available.
I was hoping to get a milk shake (pretty ubiquitous in Kyiv, so not a strange request) but there were none so I got a “health drink” made with ginger and slices of fruits. It was very tasty!
The food was presented in a very beautiful way. The quasadilla was pink! It was more like a wrap, not very cheese-y, but tasty nonetheless. The burger was served with a nice spicy mustard sauce which went well with the soft taste of the burger. I have to say the burger was a bit smaller than expected.
Of course we had a dessert! There were several options, we tried the Napoleon and the blue berry cheesecake. The Napoleon, made with coconut cream, was very creamy, almost gooey but in a good way. The blue berry cheesecake is made with cashews and coconut milk but I found the coconut taste to be pretty overpowering. The texture of the cake was interesting, it was not very smooth, but not in an unpleasant way.
The service is okay, it was a bit awkward since the space is small and we were the only guests, the servers were hovering around us a bit. The food was nice, but the portions rather small. And to be honest, it was actually a bit expensive for what we got. Especially in Kyiv where food is often very reasonably priced. With the menu in English too (albeit with some creative translation), we had the idea this place caters mostly to foreigners, rather than locals.
