Vegan Fast Food
As a vegan, you really do not just want to eat lettuce and carrots. Not vegans often think about vegans, but we also love vegan burgers, fries, croquettes, squabbling … you name it! Fortunately, we could already go to the Vegetarian Snackbar in the Netherlands, but now we also have a Vegan Junk Food Bar! So nice! In Berlin we were already fond of Yellow Sunshine, a vegetarian fast food restaurant with lots of vegetable options. But now we do not have to leave our country at all.
There are no cruel scenes to the food that you get on your plate at Vegan Junk Food Bar or VJFB (Marie Heinekenplein 9-10). Here they work 100% vegetarian, no vegan even. The card is full of traditional fast food dishes. But the hamburger, the hairdresser’s, the shawarma and the Caesar salad with chicken are all made with meat substitutes here. And everything is delicious and tasteful, real comfort food. Hence the chances are that you have to wait for a table when you are here at lunchtime. Vegan is hot and so it is packed full. The device may also be there. A fast food restaurant to remember.
Tip: The fries are very tasty, making a simple fries a party. If you go to the Vegan Junk Food Bar, take these bitterballen anyway. They are tasty and have a unique taste. The citizen was also very good. They have been able to imitate ‘beef’ well.
Vegan Junk Food Bar is open every day from 12:00 to 22:00.

Another Location we would recommend going to is tight behind the Kinkerstraat in Amsterdam Oud West and is the very first Joint of The Dutch Weed Burger. No coffee shop, but a vegan-seaweed fast-food bar: a world first. A place where you can eat easy going from morning to evening and have a beer with friends or a quick bite.
The menu is one hundred percent plant-powered, enriched with seaweed and micro algae from, among others, seaweed farm Zeewaar in the Oosterschelde. Besides the famous burger you could eat for years at festivals and restaurants, you will find other new plant-based fast food ‘classics’ on the menu such as Seawharma, The Dutch Weed Dog and Wish’ n Chips. The Joint also serves freshly made Mylkshakes and sWeeds: 100% vegan, traditionally made sweet delicacies such as tompouces, brownies and cheesecake!
