Mr. & Mrs. Watson will open a Vegan Cheese Factory in Amsterdam

Founders Aleid Koopal & Kirsi Rautiainen started their vegan restaurant Mr. & Mrs. Watson back in 2017 and became a household name when it came to their innovating vegan dishes. Their vegan cheese became the talk of vegan Amsterdam and we’re happy to announce that they are planning to open their own vegan cheese factory!

Cheesy Business
If you have never tasted vegan cheese, you should. Sometimes you cannot tell the difference! Who ever thinks vegan cheese is easy to prepare, has it wrong. It’s a long process and each cheese has a different flavour. The vegan cheeses you can find on the menu at Mr. & Mrs. Watson are roquefort, Italian herbs with pistachio, smoked almond cream cheese, goat cheese made with cashew nuts, pepper jack cream cheese and vegan cheese fondue.

Cheese Factory
“Right now we prepare all our cheese in the kitchen downstairs which takes up a lot of space because of the time the cheese has to age or cure” This is why Aleid & Kirsi are looking into a small cheese factory near Duivendrecht. This why they can upscale their cheese production and even sell it to stores outside the restaurant. The location has been picked but it will take a little bit to set everything up. We’re exited and the more cheese alternatives there are, the better for the environment!

Mr. & Mrs. Watson, Vegan Food Bar to open in Amsterdam

If you are following the latest food trends a little bit, you know that plant based food is making waves right now. Many cities around the world cater vegans and vegetarians with amazing vegan hotspots and Amsterdam couldn’t stay behind. Mr. & Mrs. Watson is THE vegan food bar in the heart of Amsterdam that serves the best vegan cheeses in town!

The idea to open a plant based food bar came only natural when founders Aleid Koopal & Kirsi Rautiainen discovered that there is only 1 vegan restaurant per 1000 vegans in Amsterdam while in Berlin and New York you can find vegan restaurants all over the place. They thought this was way to less of course and with the current knowledge about climate change, they knew something had to change. Did you know that the agriculture industry is causing more pollution than the whole transport industry combined together?? (yes, this includes airplanes!) Crazy right? No wonder people – that used to love meat, become flexitarians or even vegan.


Some shocking facts

So back to Mr. & Mrs. Watson. What will they serve and what can we expect from this vegan food bar? For a sneak peak you should check out their Instagram account! (looking goood) Expect vegan pizza’s, pad Thai, cakes, waffles, special drinks and even vegan cheese! Their mission: to make vegan food attractive and more accessible to a larger audience.
