Dit is een blog van Anne Travel Foodie
Almere is a new city located close to Amsterdam and Utrecht. You might think it might be difficult to find good vegetarian and vegan food in Almere but there are several great places where you can go. Whether it’s for a vegan breakfast, a healthy lunch or a vegetarian dinner; I’m showing you where to go in Almere.
The Black Cockatoo
When you say ‘Almere’ and ‘vegan’ in one sentence, everyone will refer you to The Black Cockatoo. This lunchroom in the city center of Almere serves some great vegan lunches. The entire menu of The Black Cockatoo is plant based, so it’s not only great for vegans but also for lactose intolerant. On the menu you’ll find a delicious granola bowl with homemade granola and coconut yogurt, smashed avocado toast, hummus toast and almond butter apple toast. They also have the vegan versions of two typical Dutch warm dishes: Kroket and Kapsalon (fries with vegan shoarma). They also have platters to share and sweets. Besides their homemade pies and cakes they also serve the vegan and refined sugar free treats from Sharp Sharp in Rotterdam. They also have a separate kids menu.
A lot lesser known is Neighbours Kitchen. And it’s a real shame, as the food is delicious! It’s a short drive or bike ride South of the city center of Almere but it’s worth the trip. Neighbours Kitchen serves a completely vegan menu with Caribbean influences. They have many gluten-free options that are clearly marked on the menu. Neigbours Kitchen has an all-day brunch and a noon to 5pm lunch. In the evenings they serve several bites that you can share with your company. We went for a healthy and colorful sourdough toast with red beet hummus, avocado slices, ‘feta cheese’, pomegranate seeds, cucumber and seeds. After that we shared the Caribbean crispy ‘flensje’ (thin pancake), it was topped with baked banana, coconut, cacao nibs and pecans.
