Ali Sadiq, who is vegan himself, ran a stall selling vegan samosa’s at the Van der Pek market at Amsterdam Noord for a year. With icecream parlour Het Ijsboefje closing for half a year he took his chance and is renting the space for the season, running his pop-up Vegan Snack Shop. The east of Amsterdam doesn’t have a lot of vegan / vegan-friendly places (especially not compared to the western part of town) so this is a welcome addition! Read more

Davelaar Jodenkoeken turn out to be vegan! Literally translates as ‘jew cookie’ the story goes in their current form they were first baked by a Jewish baker. But originally created at the end of the 19th century already! They are a typical Dutch cookie and well-known by everyone.
Davelaar informed Vegan Wiki that the vitamin D3 is no longer added although at the moment it still says so on the package. Oh and no worries, that ‘boteraroma’ is synthetic! Find them at various supermarkets.
