The Newest Healthy Hotspot In “De Pijp”
Are you living in Amsterdam or visiting this bright and vibrant city? You’ve got to try this new healthy hangout! The Meets is an honest eatery and take-away, with everything just the way we like it:
80% Plant-based, 20% animal produce and 100% yummy! Here you can eat wholesome, hand-made, local, organic food and enter the place with any dietary wish you have. You can eat gluten- diary- & sugarfree.
Are you vegan? No problem. But if you wish to bring your super-carnivore boyfriend/husband, he can count on a mega burger with a beer on the side. Organic of course, with a beetroot sauce instead of ketchup;)
This is being healthy in the most versatile way. Other healthy hangouts often only serve breakfast/lunch, but at The Meets you can drop by at any time of day. They serve breakfast, sandwiches, soups, salads, mains, sides, snacks, sweets and juices. If you don’t want to hang in their pretty restaurant (I can’t see why), then most of the dishes are also available for take-out.
Also pretty new to health-based concept: they serve alcohol! But as healthy, organic and local as possible. Try the beers from the local brewery “De Prael” or have a glass of organic wine. If you are going to drink, do it right!
WHAT SHOULD I EAT?
Everything!! But if you really have to make an selection these are my favourites:
The Beetroot Balls are the Meets’ healthy answer to the famous dutch “bitterballen”. There’s some gluten in there but I tried one anyways, they’re awesome!
WHEN ARE THEY OPEN?
Sides, snacks & sweets: 08:00-22:00
WHERE CAN I FIND THEM?
They’re located in one of the most “gezellige” (cozy) and upcoming areas in Amsterdam called “De Pijp” (which you’ll have to visit anyways). You can find them at Cornelis Troostplein 3 in Amsterdam!
Their pretty website: The Meets
