There are a few chains around Amsterdam and its iconic, hip and relaxed vibe make it a real hotspot for locals and tourists. If your craving something greasy and super delicious the Vegan Junk Food Bar will fix you right up. It’s so good you’ll definitely go back for more just to make sure you’ve tried absolutely everything on the menu.
This is one of those best of both worlds places, by day a milk bar serving breakfast foods such as pancakes, cakes, sandwiches, and even soft-serve ice cream and by night it turns into a burger bar offering local draft beers, juicy vegan burgers, and boozy milkshakes – YES BOOZY MILKSHAKES. So basically it’s a 2 in 1, you could bring a group of friends and spend the day into the night or better yet go twice!
The menu doesn’t disappoint and neither does the quality of the food and friendly staff, you won’t be let down once you’re seated in this pretty pink ’80s themed diner and you’ve got your Instagram worthy food photos.
Moving on from burgers and milkshakes, Mastino V is a pizzeria with an entirely vegan and gluten-free menu (the first-ever in Amsterdam to be exact). In Its vibrant, hip, and modern setting it serves authentic, traditional Italian pizzas with homemade vegan cheeses from mozzarella to brie and luscious ingredients sourced from the South of Italy. They make their dough fresh every day and with a wide range of pizza options, starters, and even desserts you’ll feel like you got a slice of heaven as you transported to Italy in one mouthful.

If you’re craving the ultimate hearty and satisfying meal do yourself a favor and head over to the Meatless District. Inspired by New York’s Meatpacking District this vegan restaurant is decorated with a whitewashed and exposed brick open-plan interior serving everything from vegan cheese platters to, lasagna, cheeseburgers, and nut roasts. It is the ultimate spot for a more high-end naughty dinner. The atmosphere and delicious, hearty portioned food leave you wanting more. We recommend you try the ‘Crispy ‘Chicken’ Sandwich’, a crowd and personal favorite.
