As promised, here’s all the food we ate on our trip to Amsterdam. We planned out all of the places we were going to eat before we went because I just love planning stuff to stop me from worrying (but I still do).
Our first meal was a falafel wrap from Cigkoftem in Zaandam. This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel so it was a super convenient meal.
Breakfast: Pancakes for breakfast from the Happy Pig Pancake Shop. I had apple and sultana pancakes with a hazelnut chocolate sauce, my partner had banana pancakes with the same sauce. These were so good but so filling, I think we could’ve managed with sharing one.
Lunch. Another falafel meal! You already know how much I like falafel! We both had a falafel pita with hummus. There was a salad bar to add your own salad so, naturally, I filled mine with as much as I could fit.
Dinner. This was probably my favourite meal during our trip. We went to Men Impossible, which is a fully vegan ramen restaurant. For starters, we had pickled carrot and cucumber (I had already eaten half before I remembered to take a photo), cashew cheese, lentil and carrot meatball, tofu nugget, aubergine (with a sauce I can’t remember the name of), potato mochi and a dumpling. So good. I chose ramen with red onion oil and my partner had ramen with black onion oil. If we go back to Amsterdam, I’ll definitely be going back here.
Day 2. Breakfast/Lunch. Don’t these look delicious? I really need to up my smoothie bowl game to make mine look even remotely as pretty. I can’t remember what the smoothies were called or contained, but I’m guessing what’s on top was what was in the smoothie too.
Dinner. Vegan Junk Food Bar. I had the shawarma burger, which tasted nice but was awkward to eat like a burger. White sauces make me think I’m eating mayonnaise, which I don’t like, so it was a bit offputting, but the ‘meat’ had a lovely flavour. My partner had the original VJFB burger, which was a beef burger with cheese and salad. He LOVED it. This was his fave meal, and he was so surprised how similar it tasted to a regular beef burger.
Day 3. Breakfast/Lunch. We went to Vegabond store and café. I had a butternut squash quiche, my partner had parsnip and celeriac soup and a sausage roll. These were very tasty. We browsed the store while we were there and I bought some iChoc chocolate because it’s about half the price compared to in England and too delicious to resist.
Dinner. Our last meal in Amsterdam was from the TerraZen Centre. I had sweet potato fries. White sauce again! And there was more batter than sweet potato, but aside from that, I enjoyed it. My partner had a chicken burger, which he enjoyed with much fewer complaints than me!
