I ate: Caribbean & Japanese at TerraZen Centre

I’ve always been a fan of udon noodles, but the problem with ordering them in most Japanese restaurants is that they only offer beef or fish stock soup, and don’t provide a separate vegan soup version. So even if it’s “udon with vegetables” (and no meat toppings), it doesn’t mean the soup itself is vegan….

I ate: gluten free pizza at Mastino V

The marinara pizza is my usual go-to when friends decide to eat out at pizza restaurants. But plenty of places now offer vegan pizza with non-dairy cheese, including the newly opened Mastino V. Pictured above is their “Full Moon” with the most delicious cherry tomatoes I’ve had in a while, lots of pine nuts, and…

I ate: Tofu Roll & Rainbow Wrap at Vegabond

Vegan pastries aren’t always the easiest to find. Cupcake shops will sometimes offer a vegan version, and there’s usually sorbet at icecream stores, but I’ve struggled to find vegan pastries as easily. Thankfully, the wonderful vegan store Vegabond (which I already blogged about previously) offer a variety of different pastry selections, including the tofu roll…

I ate: Döner at Donnies

THIS. My favourite thing in Amsterdam so far, food-wise. I’ve Deliveroo-ed Donnies’ döners to my house probably five times already, but only  got to try it at the restaurant last night. Pictured above is the “Curry” döner with their plant-based veggie (not-) “chicken”, which the restaurant confirmed to me (in person and on Facebook) is…

I ate: SUMO Burger at Vegan Junk Food Bar

This is when you realise (if you haven’t already) that I’m not vegan just for health reasons. MMM just looking at this photo makes me hungry. Again. This is the SUMO Burger by the newly opened Vegan Junk Food Bar. I was too hungry and excited to take a picture of the menu so can’t remember…

I ate: Avo Rose at The Avocado Show

I knew of this restaurant a few weeks before actually moving to Amsterdam, but only had a chance to try it out this weekend. With its very pop-culture relevant theme, and instagrammable dishes, the queue on weekends are usually an hour or so. I was there bright and early at 9 AM though (woohoo), so…
