OMG vegan pubfood!

vegan pizza amsterdam

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.! 😀

‘Even Geen Vlees’ ad campaign

evengeenvlees

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.

New delicious icecream!

Out of Sweden’s icecream making tradition comes this Swedish Glace from Dutch company Ola (known by other names in other countries). After being available in various European countries we’re now also being able to enjoy it. Among the creamiest vegan icecream ever! It comes in two different flavours: vanilla and raspberry. In Amsterdam so far only available at bigger Albert Heijn supermarkets.
