Blink once with your eyes and there pops up another new ‘lets-drop-the-animal-cruelty-stuff-and-go-for-plant-based’ vegan spot. This time we say hi to the next big vegan thing which is born and raised in Amsterdam: Vegan Junk Food Bar Eastside which is located near the Dappermarkt.
Friday the 13th of April was a lucky day for VJFB. They opened without too much fanfare and fuss. As a neighbour I can tell you from sec one it’s day after day packed. Doesn’t surprise me at all, East was waiting for it. The story: they believe in using plant-based alternatives can have a huge benefit on our health, animals and above all our planet. Besides I’m not a diehard vegan – more a ‘wegan’, try to be a vegan on weekdays – I find the concept of ‘junk food’ really appealing. Healthy and mouthwatering in one food package, perfect match. Looking forward to try the loaded kapsalon, the black daddy mc chik’n (hallelujah for these names) and the red velvet cake. But I can tell you the vegan bitter balls and GT were appetising during their launch party the 19th!
Oh yaaas! These do-gooders launched their own organic t-shirts for those who have balls. Can’t wait to shine with quotes like ‘suck my bitter balls’ or ‘fuck me, I’m vegan’? Go to the VJFB shop or Goat Organic Apparels’ store.
Vegan lover or not, for me it’s worth trying. ‘When you know better, you do better!’
