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.
If you have room for more or only come for the sweet stuff, there is a mad selection of vegan milkshakes, pies and sweets. The most original vegan sweet being the vegan soft serve ice cream! Deer Mama offers the only vegan soft serve machine in the city (or country?)
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!
