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.
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.
Why Amsterdam needs The Breakfast Club
So you are in Amsterdam and decided to go out in the town. You start of with some drinks at the red-light district, land in a coffeeshop, have some more drinks in a brown cafe, share some Heinies with the locals, go to a fancy cocktail bar where you zip on a GT, wonder off to a booming club, do a little dance, have some more drinks and…
100% vegan lunch & food store in the Amsterdam centre
Vegabond is a vegan friendly whole food store where they serve homemade lunch and sweets. Everything is 100% vegan. In the store you can get things like vegan pizza, vegan chocolate, vegan candy, vegan sausages… aka vegan paradise. Next to that they sell and serve handmade vegan donuts, bonbons, cakes, rolls, wraps and sandwiches. Everything is served on and packaged in biodegradable material.
A few years ago De Hallen opened in Amsterdam West. It’s a building that used to be a tram remise, built in the 19th century. This tram remise had been empty for a while which is a shame because it’s a beautiful authentic place. Luckily, in 2010 a few initiative takers and people from the neighborhood decided to bring it back to life.
When you’re in Amsterdam, you probably want to visit a coffeeshop because hey, this is your chance, right? There are a lot of them in the city, and when you’re new here it might be hard to pick one that isn’t too shady, like lots of local shops are, or too crowded and loud, like most tourist coffeeshops in the centre are.
