In 2019 I only want to support vegan restaurants so I’m happy to see more and more vegan places are opening in my city. The past year six new vegan restaurants opened in Rotterdam with completely different dishes. So if you’re visiting or live here, they’re all worth a visit. And one famous one from Amsterdam is opening this summer in Rotterdam 😀
Right across from Central Station it’s very easy to reach. Since they’re one of the few vegan restaurants that deliver, I rarely cook :), I tried almost everything on their menu. My favorite for lunch, probably not the healthiest, is their burger with fries. But if you’re going for something healthier their bowls are very good too.
Veggie is a Brazilian coffee bar. We went there for a high tea and got some really nice grilled sandwiches with humus, spinach quiches, muffins, a smoothie and delicious Brazilian ‘cheese’ balls. The owner is a very sweet Brazilian woman who has been vegan herself for five years. The place feels like you’re on vacation with very cozy interior and Brazilian music in the background. We’ll definitely spend some Sundays in the summer there.
I love love love their ‘chicken’ and curry sandwich. Two days a week I work around the corner so I get that as lunch. And their soups are so good too. All four of them. They also have some delicious options for desert, like bananabread, brownies and carrot cake.
Plantastic! Health Hub
They have some surprising dishes on their menu like scrambled tofu for breakfast and beetroot-cacao latte. Very good as a healthy breakfast. They also sell vegan books, sustainable notebooks and cruelty free products.
This opened very recently and I wanted to go Tuesday but they’re closed on Monday and Tuesday and only open for dinner. I’ve heard they have the best vegan cocktails so it’s definitely on my going-this-week list 🙂 They offer fine dining and want their menu to be a surprise. On their Instagram you find a few yummie pictures.
This is a very cute and small juice and coffee bar. I’ve walked passed it, it’s right across Central Station in Central Plaza, but haven’t tried it yet. Perfect for on the go coffee. And I’m pretty curious about their grilles sandwiches.
Vegan Junk Food Bar (coming soon)
They’re coming to Rotterdam!!! Can’t wait. Whenever I’m in Amsterdam I try to go there. Their vegan version of popular junk food dishes like burgers, hotdogs, bitterballs and shawarma are soo good!
