Shop stop: SLA in Amsterdam

{photo credit: Teska Overbeeke }

I really noticed during our summer in Amsterdam that ‘Amsterdammers’ as we call our selves … have really picked up on the Pure – Slow- and live healthy movement … fresh markets, shops carrying organic products and now SLA.

A restaurant serving salads, healthy snacks, juices and soup all in a beautiful surrounding.

Nicemakers, Dax Roll and Joyce Urbanus designed this place and I love what they did. Perfect colors, style and ambiance … very inviting indeed.

Dutch people are not the best or should I say creative cooks in the world (including me!) but we do know how to make a Salad. During summer and spring and nowadasy even in winter we love to bring a very good salad to the table.

I don’t think Nina Pierson and Jop van de Graaf, founders of SLA, were having traditional Dutch salads in mind when creating SLA … no I believe they were more intrigued and inspired by the beauty of Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world located in centre of Amsterdam, and rooftop gardens in New York. I am very Happy people like them are bringing more Green to Amsterdam.

    Hi Irene,

    thanks for this lovely post. I live in Amsterdam and I haven’t discovered this place yet. I love salad and this concept makes me eager to visit for a quick break. I like your blog/business a lot. I find it really inspiring and creative. Do you still live in Kuala Lumpur? I’m amazed by this. I think you have better weather over there :) Best wishes from Amsterdam.
