good option in amsterdam

We ate here for dinner during a recent trip to Amsterdam. First you should be aware that this is less of a formal, sit-down restaurant with wait service and more of a order at the counter and help yourself kind of place. Probably better for lunch than dinner unless you're in the mood for something quick. However, the staff were friendly and very patient with us as they have quite a selection to choose from. The mock meats, while good, were average compared to some of the products like Beyond Meat that we have back in the States.

Pros: friendly service, good selection of mock meats

Great selection of fake meaty food, very tasty and a lot like the real thing. Shame only that the tuna salad isn't vegan. But I did find vegan tuna in the packaged frozen food section, which cannot be easily found elsewhere!

Not good for eating out!

We went there to get a vegan meal thinking this was an experienced and good place. We ordered a burger and a sandwich. To make the bueger vegan the buns were replaced by toast, which was quite lame. The steak and the 'cheese' was good but there was barely anything else in it, which made it a burger way bellow average. The sandwich was okay but small and the bread was dry and hard as stone.
absolutly not worth the money.

It seems like the place has good options in relations to substitute products which can be puechased at a fair price, but as a resturant it was not satisfactory.

Pros: Good replacement products
Cons: Low quality food, Value for money

Vegetarian Butcher

We've wanted to come here ever since we first heard about them opening in The Hague years ago, so we were eager to have our lunch. Many of the meats behind the glass were actually vegetarian, not vegan, so our choices were somewhat limited although the deli menu is extensive. We settled on a meatball sandwich and a schnitzel sandwich, both served open face. They were quite tasty and I just wish it were all vegan as I wanted to try it all. We also tried some vegan cheese slices not available in the US and they had a good hard sliceable texture for sandwiches.

Pros: vegan meats and cheese, tasty sandwiches
Cons: not all vegan

Interesting Shop & Deli

Posted on 09 / 23 / 2014

Looks a little like a butcher shop but everything is vegetarian and most of it vegan.
At the counter you can get free samples to try the faux meats. They offer amongst other things Salads, Sandwiches and just "meat".
I had a great sandwich with "Teriyaki Chicken" at this Vegetarian Butcher.

Pros: nice, friendly staff, appearance, free samples
Cons: expensive

More than just a store.... more a deli/cafe

Had one of my most unique vegetarian experiences at De Vegetarische Slager. This establishment has a deli down one side. All the products in the glass front cabinet are vegan/vegetarian. Down the other side of the shop there are funky cafe style tables. A long table with chairs run along the front window facing onto the interesting street. Immaculately clean and stylish contemporary decor. They sell interesting vegetarian products and groceries. With the help of the friendly customer focussed waitress I selected some mock 'chicken' which she warmed for me and served on a plate with a fresh crusty roll, a selection of salads and a big smile... totally delicious experience.

Pros: Atmosphere, Food, Uniqueness

All depends on your taste

The very friendly staff of this shop found it very important to stress during my visit that these products are designed to have the same texture and taste as meat - there is a great, unique in the city, choice for those seeking imitation meats, but I would only recommend this place to anybody who knows that is exactly what they are looking for. There is no tofu, seitan etc, so it is not for everybody.

Pros: fully veggie, friendly staff

The Vegetarian Butcher, faux-pas

Posted on 12 / 31 / 2013

No animal blood in here just amazing mock meats, vegetarian and vegan foods and groceries. The main counter is the centrepiece where you can buy mock meats in either their original form or spiced up with sauces and marinades. An extensive freezer section holds many fantastic ranges of faux-flesh products such as schnitzels, burgers and sausages. Some vegans don't sit comfortably with stuff like this. Well that's up to them, they can miss out. I certainly aint missing this trick. This place has friendly passionate staff who will help you in your choice of the delights they have behind the big 'butcher's' counter. Free samples also available, just ask. They also sell a decent range of vegan wines including champagne and sparkly. We got our New Years's Eve 2013/14 food from here to take back to the hotel room after the festivities. Who would have thought the word vegetarian and slaughter being spoken in the same sentence. Come here and find out.

Pros: Faux-meats, friendly, extensive range
Cons: Expensive
