Especially pleased with 100% vegan restaurants of course, and before the end of the year the following restaurants can be added to the list! Read more
The Amsterdam Animal Ambulance is on the job 24/7 to help animals in emergency situations. Most of their staff is working on a voluntary basis. We followed vet tech and vegan Lara during one of the shifts.

I’ve cycled past this cafe so many times but for some reason always assumed it was solely a place for tourists, selling overpriced waffles and such. And because of it, I never noticed it. But then a friend told me about this ‘cute little bakery in the centre, selling vegan pastry’. Say what? Read more
Massive attendance at this weekend’s March to Close Down All Slaughterhouses!! A demonstration held at 38 cities all over the world. The first demonstration took place in Paris in 2012. For Amsterdam this was the first year. It was organised by animal rights group Bite Back, who also organised the march a week ago in Brussels. Read more
There are nowadays plenty options in Amsterdam for those who like vegan food, served in an elegant way. Fine dining style, offered by renowned restaurants like De Kas, Choux, Morris & Bella, Yerba, Bolenius, Bak. But none of those are completely vegan. Therefore it’s quite refreshing to meet a chef-turned-vegan who started together with his partner vegan pop-up Sproutsiders. Only two more weeks so check this out! Read more
Of course I like to support 100% vegan places. Owned by fellow vegans, my kind of people. But what I just love love is when traditional places start to offer vegan options as well. One of those places is Café Saarein, which is offering vegan lunch every Saturday, already since quite a while. Saarein has the looks of a typical traditional Jordaan café. However it has a big (non-typical) history as it started out as a ‘women-only’ café – a lesbian bar. That was in 1978, nowadays everyone is welcome though it still proudly carries that identity.

Whooo like a week ago we organised our own vegan festival at OT301! We aimed to organise a festival offering not just vegan delicacies but also food for thought and cultural stuff. Showing the diverse ways in which people are engaged with veganism.
So we had lectures about vegan advocacy, spoken word with lyrics written for the occasion, bands playing, food and animal rights stalls and much more! It was a beautiful sunny day and hundreds of people visited – great that so many people in Amsterdam are interested in veganism these days! See you next time perhaps! Click here to see the photos.
Whooooooooo being (lazy and) vegan just became easier with New York Pizza and Domino’s both introducing vegan pizzas on their menu! Available in their restaurants of course but also for delivery! Read more
