We're of course thrilled to see a growing Keto interest here in the Netherlands. Besides cooking delicious Keto dishes ourselves we also just want to go out for a yummy lunch or dinner, isn't it? So that's why we thought why not share our top 5 favorite Keto-friendly spots in this exciting city of Amsterdam.
Keto is all about eating healthy fats, moderate protein, and low carb. Luckily there are some great places here in Amsterdam that will not let you down my friend.
1. Morgan & Mees
For a romantic date or catching up with friends without feeling guilty the next day of eating too many carbs, this is your place. For lunch, we recommend their Caesar salad without the croutons and also their Raw Salmon. For vegans we recommend the Vegan salad skipping the sweet potato and asking for more salad and avocado. Believe us, you will feel great and satiated for a long time so you can enjoy the city.
When you don't have time to make your own salad then Sla (which is a Dutch word for lettuce) is your friend. They have many locations here in Amsterdam so don't ya worry for traveling too much. Well, it's a small city and cycling is fun! At Sla we recommend making your own salad. We like ours with spinach, avocado, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, tofu, seeds and lots of olive oil.
If you eat meat we recommend their Grilled rib-eye. For vegans, we recommend the Broccolini. These plates will delightfully surprise you. And don't be sad you can't have any dessert because their cheese platter is packed with the right goodies.
4. The Cold Pressed Juicery
We come here often for our weekly pit stop and order a delicious smoothie, juice or iced coffee. Our favorite is when we ask if they can prepare a smoothie with avocado, turmeric, cacao nibs, and almond milk. Absolutely delicious with healthy fats for long-lasting energy.
Of course, The Avocado Show has to be on our Keto-spot list. You have to modify your dish here and there to make it Keto but definitely worth going. We recommend the Bun burger (skipping the nachos, and if you're vegan skipping the meat) we also recommend the Benny Boy.
Enjoy your Keto dish and the great city!
