Hot Spot #13 – Moer – Amsterdam
About two weeks ago we got to try out the vegan menu at Moer, a fine dining and eco-friendly restaurant. The chef at Moer makes sure that vegetables are the main stars. While not everything is vegan and they do serve meat and fish, I found the vegan menu to be quite exciting! I could definitely tell that it was inspired, playing with the imagination.
The chef personally picks the best local farmers for his produce, making sure that the ingredients are local. Playing around and adjusting the dishes until he has perfectly balanced the dish. …
Hot Spot #12 – Deer Mama – Amsterdam
These days the vegan hot spots are popping up left and right. This to me is a positive sign, it shows that veganism has never been this popular and that it’s popularity is starting to grow. Which brings me to another vegan hot spot that just recently opened it’s doors….
Hot Spot #11 – Meatless District (de pijp) – Amsterdam
Some of you Amsterdam foodies might have been familiar with the Meatless District at the bilderdijkstraat. After the success of their first location the two amazing woman behind this vegan hot spot decided to open a second location located in ‘de Pijp’. As a big foodie I love to visit the newest food spots to see if they live up to the hype. So after attending the openings lunch (which was delicious), I had to go back to test some of the menu items, which definitely did not disappoint. …
Hot Spot #7 – Mastino V – Amsterdam
They had me at vegan pizza! Me and my friend happened to be in Amsterdam, so what do you do when you’re in Amsterdam? Visit as many vegan hot spots as possible of course! This time Mastino V caught our attention, being a completely vegan pizzeria, I knew it was going to be a great evening. Spoiler: I was right, the evening was a success. Oh and did I mention the pizzas were gluten-free as well!

Vegan Junkfood Bar? Yes you read it right, a vegan junkfood bar! As much as I’m trying to be a healthy vegan, I can’t help but be excited about this junkfood bar. It’s entirely plant based, making it a healthier, junkfood alternative. From dutch classics such as bitterballen (don’t ask me to translate that!) to…
Hot Spot #5 – Happy Earth – Rotterdam
Another hot spot has opened its doors, this time located in Rotterdam (North), which happens to be one of my favourite cities in the Netherlands. Happy Earth is a new and health conscious food spot, where you can get your whole food fix. Not only does Yonca (the owner) serve some of the most delicious plant-based meals but she also offers a variety of vegan foods in her little store. So you get a mini plant-based grocery store and cafe all in one!
Which started out as a blog turned into something really gorgeous! One thing I’ve always noticed when following Yonca’s blog and Instagram account is that she has an eye for detail. Her eye for detail combined with the philosophy of sharing whole, sustainable foods has manifested into a store of exquisite quality.
Hot Spot #4 – By Lima – Haarlem
I’m back with another hot spot, and this time it’s located in my own home town! Honestly, I can’t believe it took me this long to write about this place, especially since I was planning on doing so last year, well better late then never, right!?
The place I’m talking about it By Lima, which is a breakfast and lunch cafe located in Haarlem, the city where I’ve been born and raised….
