true you can try indonesian and suriname food

the good things from a colonial past.

just make sure the vegetarian roti doesn't come with an egg (vegetarische roti zonder ei).

many people will speak english as well. if the word vegan is not familiair you can explain as vegetarian who doesn't eat eggs, milk, cheeze etc.

It has been 15 years since I last went there, but I do recall having no problem getting vegan food.

The Dutch are really into dairy products, but Amsterdam is multicultural enough and 'activisty' enough for vegan food to be everywhere - I even ate in a squatted vegan restaurant that served homebrew beer by the docks!

Everybody speaks English and even menus that are entirely in Dutch aren't that hard to decipher, as English is basically just a variation of Dutch, and loads of the words are really similar - just with extra vowels!

Ha Ha, some people will ask you in witch part of the world it is. Dutch aren't so much used to veganfood. The know vegetarians and you can get the question so than you do eat vish. Explain them also no milk, butter and honey if you order something in a not vegan place.

Hope you will have a good time, looks like a very bussy schedule. And for sure you will find the cannabis, more than you can dream off.

People go to Amsterdam for the culture? I thought it was just for the weed.

Enjoy.
