Vegan Döner Kebab on the Overtoom
Good news, vegan friends! There’s a new vegan snack spot in town 😀 Yesterday Kebabi served on a Pita 3.0 opened its doors for all you hungry kebab lovers. Of course Green Amsterdam couldn’t wait to taste this plant based Kebabi and rushed to the opening at the Overtoom.
Spingaren – Charcuterie, Drinks and Dinner
Did you notice more and more eateries are offering a vegan menu? One of them is Spingaren, a fairly new charcuterie annex restaurant. Here you can go for some charcuterie and drinks, dinner, or both.
Plant based fast food
Most vegans have the urge to eat some junk food every now and then, just like normal people 😀 Luckily we have two, almost three, Vegan Junkfood Bars in Amsterdam serving a 100% plant based snack menu.
100% plant based restaurant
The 100% plant based Meatless District in Amsterdam West and South is ironically inspired on the Meatpacking District. This area in New York thanks its name to the many slaughterhouses that used to be located there, though nowadays it’s a hip and happening hood for trendy bars and clubs. The Meatless District succeeded to implement this ambience in their joint; an industrial, modern and spacious interior with an open kitchen and bar in the middle, completely fading out the old dusty image of veganism.
Dreaming of a vegan Christmas

So for a bit longer than a week I’ve been eating vegan only. It has been going pretty easy and I’m really enjoying experimenting with plant based recipes. Here’s the dish I liked best so far, a yellow curry with chickpeas, zucchini, carrot, buckwheat noodles and of course some cashew nuts, spring onions and cilantro to top it off. The best part is it’s super easy and quick to make!
Hummus has become very popular over the years in the Netherlands. The main ingredient chick pea has been propagated as a remedy against cancer, heart disease, diabetes and even wrinkles, which moved it into the spotlight as a super food. And although up until a few years ago it was quite hard to find good hummus in Amsterdam, nowadays you can find it on lunch menus everywhere. One of these places is Hummus D&A, a nice little bistro in the Jordaan.
100% vegan lunch & food store in the Amsterdam centre
