Vegan is about to become the biggest trend of 2018. We actually hope that it won’t be just a trend but an inspiring way of eating for a lifetime. Of course, we love a good piece of meat, cheese and fish ourselves. But, it will help our world so much if we all had a vegan meal every once in a while. Also, this way of eating isn’t as dull as it used to be. This is why there are a lot of great vegan hotspots in Amsterdam that serve beautiful and creative dishes that you should try. Here are ten of them!
- SLA – Ceintuurbaan, Zuidas, Westerstraat, Utrechtsestraat, Middenweg, Haarlemmerdijk, Amstelveenseweg
This is probably one the most known vegan hotspots in Amsterdam. At SLA they serve salads, soups and delicious vegan desserts for an affordable price. We love their bumi tempeh bowl, so nourishing!
- Koffie ende Koeck – Haarlemmerweg 175
Vegan chef Maartje specialised in pastry and creates original and vegan pastries. This place even won an award because everything about this restaurant is as sustainable as possible. From recycled furniture to ecological chalk paint on the walls.
- Dophert vegan food & goods – Spaarndammerstraat 49
Want to start your day with a vegan club sandwich with smoked tempeh or have a delicious burger for lunch? Dophert is the place to be. They currently started a crowdfunding project to open their second restaurant.
- The Dutch Weedburger Joint – Nicolaas Beetsstraat 47
The famous weedburger is one of the healthiest burgers on this planet. A must try for anyone who wants to challenge their taste buds. The joint – a vegan seafood fast food bar – is the first in the world and you’ll find all kinds of seaweed dishes here.
- Meatless District – Bilderdijkstraat 65-67
See your food being prepared in the open kitchen of the Meatless District. Their menu changes every season and is 100% vegan.
- Mastino – Bilderdijkstraat 192
If you’re a big fan of pizza but you want to try something different, Mastino is the place to go. They bake pizza according to grandmothers recipe and believe in local, organic ingredients.
- VEGABOND – Leliegracht 16
This intimate lunchroom and vegan grocery store is located in the heart of Amsterdam. Have a vegan donut with a warm coffee and grab a piece of vegan cheese on your way out.
- Spirit – Czaar Peterstraat 2a
Do you find it hard to choose from a menu? At Spirit you can serve yourself. Their buffet has 50 kinds of breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes to choose from. Indulge and enjoy!
- ROOTS – Amstelveenseweg 164
It was never this easy to get healthy take away or, as ROOTS like to call it, vitality to go. Start your day with an oatmeal breakfast and end it with a quinoa bowl for dinner. Who said eating healthy wasn’t easy?
- Geitenwollenwinkel – Utrechtsestraat 37
All right, we kind of cheated with this last one. You can’t eat here, but this shop is still very vegan! The fashion brands sold here are 100% sustainable, honest and vegan. Be surprised and have a look yourself!
