Deer Mama: Vegan Mylk & Burger Bar in De Pijp

Feel like traveling back to the fifties? Head over to Deer Mama! With a little imagination you’re living the Grease musical as the decor looks like an old school American Diner. Though unlike American Diners, Deer Mama serves food and drinks all vegan. It’s a 100% vegan brunch, lunch & dinner spot, including (boozy) Mylkshakes and Beyond Meat Burgers!

Deer Mama is situated in neighborhood De Pijp, Amsterdam South. They are famous for their burgers and vegan milkshakes, which are sublime, though we found out they offer much more on their menu.

Like the Pani Puri for starters: a crunchy Indian snack with chickpeas, sweet potato, cucumber herb water, coriander and date-tamarind chutney. It shows Deer Mama is more than just a burger and milkshake bar. Other options for starters include the Japanese Eggplant, Dutch Bitterballen, Fried Curry Spices Cauliflower & Broccoli , Smoky BBQ Nacho Bucket and Mushroom Croquettes.

For main you can either choose a Ramen Bowl in two different variations or one of the six different vegan burgers. Varying from The Millionaire, a Beyond Meat patty with homemade ‘faux gras’, salad, pickles, red onion and truffle mayonaise to The Tonkatsu Burger with ‘fried no chicken’, miso aubergine, shredded cabbage with yuzu and sesame mayonaise. Not your average ingredients when it comes to American snacks.

As a side, order some Crunchy Sweet Potato Fries! Or pair your burger with Charcoal Grilled Asparagus, Corn on the Cob with herb butter, BBQ Veggies, Avocado Fries, or a Garden Salad.

Deer Mama’s concept appears simple – burgers and shakes – but the menu offers surprising, original and tasty combinations and ingredients .

Not to mention the brunch and lunch, offering stacked pancakes, soy yoghurt fruit bowls, baguettes, sandwiches… Too much to describe all of that here. Which gives you a good excuse to head over to Deer Mama yourself!

Soil of Amsterdam: Plant-Centric Restaurant on the Westside


Although we love 100% vegan restaurants at Green Amsterdam, sometimes it’s just easier to drag your non-vegan company to a restaurant that serves delicious vegan meals as well as non-vegan meals. Soil of Amsterdam is that kind of restaurant. Their menu is plant-centric, meaning dishes are 100% vegan but can be extended with animal derived products. Soil of Amsterdam thrives for a sustainable menu which is good for your health and the planet.

Green Canteen: Veggie food with attitude in Amsterdam North

Green Canteen: A vega(n) haven in Noord

Only a 5-minute bike ride away from the Ijplein ferry, the Green Canteen is located in one of the less explored parts of the North of Amsterdam. Surrounded by warehouses and houses alike, the area is a more residential version of its cooler Northern sibling, NDSM. Extra points for the location, because it’s right opposite the Oedipus brewery! Only one of the coolest breweries in Amsterdam. Green Canteen is humble and true, serving only vegan and vegetarian options. The interior of the eatery is small and intimate, with a simple décor, just a few tables and an open kitchen. There’s also a terrace with a couple of tables, in case you want to grab that afternoon sun.
