Vegan foodbar Mr. & Mrs. Watson
Foodbar Mr. & Mrs. Watson is 100% vegan: from chairs covered in pineapple leather to a refined cheese platter with French cashew Brie. And what to think of vegan french toast waffle with grilled apple, tempeh bacon, date syrup and sesame seeds? Yum!

Vegan Junk Food Bar
According to our food critc, the Vegan Junk Food Bar is the place to be if you're looking for some greasy 'plant based' comfort food. In fact: the burgers here are better than the ones at many chains that dó serve meat. Also try the seaweed nuggets and vegan 'bitterballen', a typical Dutch snack that keeps locals coming back for more.

Meatless District
The menu reads: Dutch croquettes ('kroketten'), chicken and steak tartare ('filet americain'). Consider our minds boggeled: is this place really -réally- vegan? Yes! Everything is plant based. Try the French toast with Nutella and banana, aubergine burgers or caesar salad with 'vegan chicken'.

The Dutch Weed Burger Joint
Ah, the Dutch and their puns. This is no coffee shop and although everything revolves around (sea)weed, you won't find actual narcotics here. Vegan foodies: gorge yourself on 'double weed Burgers', 'Seawharma' (a vegan take on shoarma) and 'Weed Dogs'.
Are you a sweet tooth? Try the funky galaxy doughnut. Also for take out.
