First Review by DeWereldvanFien

Veggie street food style café with vegan options - Edit

I visited with a colleague on a work trip and we wanted somewhere affordable and where I knew my lactose free and her gluten free needs would be met. VanVeg did just that. It's a take away café with tables available for customers to eat their food. There were five box options to choose from. I had coconut rice with daal and aloo gobi. My colleague had the Chef's Surprise box, which had some Dutch specialities including a vegetarian bitterbollen with mushrooms and satay. The portions were generous and the food really tasty and filling. The staff were friendly and helpful, and explained that it wasn't a restaurant. It's similar to a café where you order at the counter. There's no fuss, just delicious veggie food and a relaxed atmosphere.

Pros: affordable, tasty, relaxed

Absolutely LOVE VanVeg! - Edit

VanVeg is literally my favourite vegan/vegetarian restaurant in the world. Their food is gorgeously spiced, their menu is full of options and really reasonably priced, and I can't even tell you how good their desserts are. We bought a jar of dessert there and took several home with us for the rest of our trip. The owners are so lovely and friendly and so is their dog Nina! Great location, great open air eating area, love everything about it. Every time we go to Amsterdam we'll take a special train ride back to this little gem.

Pros: lots of vegan options, delicious vegan desserts, b

Cons: Only that my belly isn't big enough to eat the who

could be much better - Edit

The menu is quite creative but the execution is somewhat lacking. The fried food offering is good if that 's what you want. The fries were great. But I feel this is a missed opportunity. There is no atmosphere in the place. Whereas it could be a nice cafe. Bad choice of layout and design. But at least I have a good reason to open my own place.

Pros: chick pea fries and hot chilli sauce

Cons: totally useless as a place to go if you want a nic

vette hap - Edit

Zo'n beetje alles komt uit de frituur of is doodgekookt. De combinaties zijn wel leuk en origineel.

Pros: leuke en aardige bediening/eigenaar

Cons: ongezond

vanVeg 22 Oct 2017 - Hoi Chantal,
bedankt voor je review, en wat jammer dat je het indruk hebt gekregen dat bij ons bijna alles uit de frituur komt of ongezond is. We proberen altijd voor iedereen wat wils op de kaart te hebben. Het klopt, dat er bij ons veel uit de frituur wordt besteld (Bierbar 't Uiltje is tegenover ons in de Zijlstraat en er worden graag snacks bij het bier besteld), maar we letten er op, dat er altijd minimaal driekwart van onze kaart niet gefrituurd wordt en er gevariëerd aanbod van peulvruchten, verse groenten, rijst en salades op de kaart staat.
Onze kaart is op facebook of onze eigen website te vinden.
Hopelijk mogen we je binnenkort nog een keertje bij ons verwelkomen en je een andere kant van onze keuken laten proeven!
Met hartelijke groeten,
vanVeg

Friendly owners and the food was delicious - Edit

Stopped by there by bike. Didn't know if it was open so I've asked. The lady owner was nice and explained me that I could'nt have fried food 'cause they just cleaned the machine.

The Spanish Haarlem Box (12.50euros) was very good, all the veggies and the ratatouille sauce and the tortilla were perfect!! Everything was made really quickly and I enjoyed eating outside in the street .

Also tried their Vegan Choco Delice (3.95euros) and I loved it. The caramel was a hit! My non vegan partner said he loved it too except the chocolate cake at the end.

Pros: support vegan in Haarlem!, friendly owners, delicious food

Cons: none

Hier komen we zeker terug - Edit

Vandaag heerlijk geluncht. Wat een liefde en smaak zit er in het eten!! Dat ze mogelijk op 1 of 2 gerechten na niet helemaal veganistisch zou zijn zoals sommige mensen aangeven, vinden wij juist fijn.. Maakt het laagdrempelig om binnen te stappen om vervolgens toch ook veganistische gerechten uit te proberen en tot de conclusie te komen dat deze zalig smaken.
Het leuke van hun concept is dat je 2 a 3 gerechtjes besteld en prima met je tafelgenoten kan delen waardoor je veel verschillende gerechten kunt proeven. Wij komen zeker terug!!

Pros: Heerlijk, Voor herhaling, Vriendelijk

Almost completely vegan, go vegan! - Edit

Expensive but totally worth it. I was told that everything is vegan, but first I got the lacto-ovo dressing... That was strange. I don't like the idea of having throwaway cutlery, plates and cups... Why!? I ordern the orange mix... It was good but I would like to have something green on the plate.

Pros: Almost everything is vegan , Big portions if you order the mix box, Nice and friendly staff

Cons: Plastic cutlery and and cardboard cup and plates. , Expensive

Top rated by local newspaper - Edit

The culinairy reviewers of the local newspaper visited this favourite place of mine three times and rated them with 8 points (out of 10). So these critical meatlovers really, really enjoyed the vegan food. A big achievement for the nice people at VanVeg. Congrats!

De culinair recensisten van Haarlems Dagblad bezochten VanVeg drie keer en gaven het cijfer 8. Een flinke prestatie voor de vriendelijke mensen van VanVeg om ook deze kritische vleesliefhebbers zo te kunnen laten genieten van Veganistisch eten!

Updated from previous review on 2017-03-11

Pros: 100% Vegan / Veganistisch, Meatloving friends will like it too, Vleesetende vrienden lusten dit ook

Cons: Mostly takeaway, one large table in the back, Vooral afhalen, één grote tafel achteraan

Review VanVeg take away - Edit

Really nice food! Great tastes and all the choices sounded really nice. Friendly staff. The wait for the food to be ready wasn't short but it was okay. A little bit of expensive for a take away, but you get healthy great tasting food. Also, if you bring your own cups it is cheaper! Go sustainability. You do need the whole menu of 3 pieces to get full, but than it's a good portion.

Pros: Great taste of food, Healthy and sustainable, Friendly staff

Cons: A bit expansive

Super Friendly! - Edit

Local business run by what I assume is a married couple, she is Dutch and he is English. The menu has some interesting variety with many vegan options, inc great vegan mayonnaise. The chick pea fries are surprising and delicious.
Top thing is their friendliness! There was a mistake in my order once and I got sincere apologies and a free meal on my next visit. Love a place that remembers regular customers! Also got a delicious lemonade on the house to share with my gf on another visit.
Only small issue is that although the food is amazing, the portions could be a little more generous.

Pros: Interesting menu options, Dutch dishes made vegan, Super friendly!

Cons: Portion sizes could be bigger

Worth it! - Edit

Went with 2 friends to the 'Koningsdag' (kingsday) BBQ; one of them isn't vegetarian (let alone vegan). Tehy both had a seitan thingie, I had a sweet potato. We had to wait a little while, but it was worth it. The little dish was packed with flavour and I really tasted that there had been a lot of thought and love in the process of making it.
One of us is vegan and got vegan mayonaise.

As a local I hope other Haarlemmers discover this place and come to love it.

Pros: Very friendly and helpfull staff, Packed with flavour, Recycable packaging

Cons: Expensive

Nice place for tasty takeaway meal - Edit

Went to VanVeg to get some good food to take away and eat outside before a concert. It was a very nice and chic store. We both had the chickpea fries which were good, also there was vegan mayonnaise available that wasn't on the menu, so ask for that! Unfortunately the seitan sausage and chickpea burger, tasty though, fell completely apart. I'd suggest using something like cornstarch to make them firmer and stick together.

Pros: Vegan options, also mayonnaise, Friendly helpful host

Cons: Food fell apart

Nice - Edit

Nice fresh food. Nothing really surprising though, except for the chickpeas which were made with vinegar which was not really my cup of tea. My friends liked it, though. Very nice and friendly owners.

Pros: friendly staff, all-vegetarian, good quality food

chick pea fries - Edit

It's a take away although it is possible to eat the food at the one big table in the shop. The food is good but not very special. I liked the fries made of chickpeas.

Heerlijk! - Edit

Wij hebben hier op kerstavond ons menu gehaald. Het was heerlijk. Mooie smaken en alles vers. We hadden een saladjar; krieltjes met veldsla in een mosterddressing. De jar krijg je mee naar huis en daar betaal je statiegeld voor. Ik dacht € 1,50. Daarnaast hadden we een tarte tartin van pastinaak en wortel in korstdeeg. Die was ook erg lekker. We hadden ook nog een hartige cake met eekhoorntjesbrood met een koriandercrème. Heel smakelijk! Verder kregen we omdat het kerst was een doosje zoet gratis mee met koekjes en een cakeje. Die waren een beetje slap dat was jammer. Maar de smaak was prima. De glühwein was ook zalig! Vriendelijke mensen en een mooie zaak. Volgende keer als we in Haarlem zijn, komen we zeker weer.

Pros: Excellent food, Good value, Friendly people
