This feels weird… checking out the cheese department at the supermarket. Vegan cheese is not only sold at organic or vegan stores but in supermarkets in town as well! Jumbo has Wilmersburger cheese for a while now in most of their stores. And recently the news spread one can order Wilmersburger at the Albert Heijn as well. Just go to the help desk in the shop and ask for it. A few Deen supermarkets also sell Wilmersburger. When calling today the one at Mosveld (Amsterdam North) confirmed they have it in their store, the other stores in Amsterdam don’t have it (yet?).
Station Amsterdam Centraal, a.k.a. Central Station. Whether you’re only passing through on the way to Amsterdam North, or just arrived in town by train, this is a place many people pass by. It’s currently undergoing a long-time period of reconstruction but some time ago some important parts where reopened again. As expected, more shops. But also more vegan food options to be found! These are the highlights. Read more

Drinking nice beers and eating vegan food, all at the same place? Yes! At beerbar Tripel. There’s a few places in town that serve vegan pizza, and this is one of them. Although it’s not like most pizzas as the bottom is super thin.
Other vegan stuff on their menu is a vegan salad and vegan bitterballen. They also have coffee with soymilk usually.
Keep an eye on their Facebook page as they sometimes have special vegan nights with burgers etc.! 😀

New initiative to encourage people to eat less meat: Even Geen Vlees (translates as ‘no meat for a while’). Run by two vegans from Amsterdam.
The idea is to finance an ongoing poster campaign on Dutch train stations. To launch the campaign, this first poster got placed on trainstation Amsterdam Zuid and will be visible for a week. It draws attention to the huge amount of water needed for the production of meat and dairy.
