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

Vegan outreach organisation Viva Las Vega’s is on a roll. First they persuaded french fries place Manneken Pis to offer vegan mayonnaise, this time they succeeded in convincing snackbar chain Smullers to also offer vegan mayo. Smullers is located at trainstations of bigger cities nationwide. In Amsterdam you can find them at station Amsterdam Centraal, Amsterdam Amstel, Amsterdam Zuid and Amsterdam Sloterdijk!
Oh by the way their Amsterdam Centraal location is open until 4 am on Fridays and Saturdays. Perhaps worth a detour after your night out? 😉
