Spirit – Vega(n) hotspot in Amsterdam East with over fifty dishes!
Just around the corner of Brouwerij t IJ in Amsterdam East you find Spirit, a vega(n) restaurant with a huge ass buffet. When you hear the word buffet, associations of all-inclusive holidays and all-you-can eat restaurants might pop up, but when you enter Spirit’s restaurant doors you’ll see this place has absolutely nothing to do with all that. It’s actually quite a peaceful spot. The interior looks a bit like a big library slash fancy canteen in some way. Maybe because of its big reading table, people working on their laptop while zipping coffee, the calm vibe and the light, spacious interior. Outside there’s a little terrace for the sunny days.
The Spirit Vega(n) Buffet
The biggest eye catcher in the room is the extensive buffet. Oh my… so many options and everything’s vega(n)! Soups, salads, pastas, sushi, noodles, cakes, pies, a whole vegan ice cream selection… You name it, the Spirit buffet has it. With over fifty different dishes there’s always something that will fulfill your craving of the moment. Think ‘Pancakes with apple & Raisin’‚ ‘Fregola Tabouleh’, ‘Sushi Meatstew &Red Onion Pickle’‚ ‘Yakitori Shitake’, ‘Avocado with Moro & Purple Cress’‚ ‘Lasagna with asparagus’‚ ‘Ramen noodles with veggies and Bergamot’‚ ‘Rhubarb Crumble’‚ ‘Black Sesame Seed Ice Cream’‚ ‘Creme Brûlée with Passionfruit’, etcetera. You get the point, the options are endless. And most important of all; the dishes are so tasty, you might make another round along the buffet.
100% BIO & Seasonal
Everything at Spirit is prepared daily by a team of cooks using only biological and seasonal ingredients. To make it easy for everyone with dietary restrictions or wishes, all ingredients and allergies are marked on a little board in front of each buffet dish. Because every dish looks so incredibly appetizing, original and colorful, it’s very tempting to just shovel a bit of everything on your plate. The good thing in this case is you pay by the gram, which makes you restrain yourself and not waste food.
Wanna try out some of this buffet goodness? Walk in at Spirit is possible all day everyday: From 8:00 in the morning to enjoy the breakfast buffet and from 11:00 to 22:00 the lunch/dinner buffet. Drinks like plant based coffees and super healthy smoothies are served all day long. Oh, and there’s also the option to take away. Check out more vegan spots in Amsterdam?
