So you all understand my frustrations on how there's no silken tofu and all those other fancy things...at least I can't find any where I live...

'Cause everytime I go to my local HFS, well...whenever I ask them for silken tofu they just give me a blank look and repeat: Silken tofu?

I noticed a new brand of soy milk, calles 'so good'or something in the Albert Heijn.

You can try it for free, too



Never saw the 'zijden' type, but I never looked for it very hard, either

Same here - I´m not even Dutch, but this is the closest I could get to Germany.

Wow

So there's actually quite some Dutch boardies on here...



I went to Rotterdam yesterday (which is like 2 hours driving from where I live) and went to ... Kruiskade or something, and they had TONS of Asian supermarkets. And most of them had silken tofu and loads of different brands of soymilk and seaweed and noodles and.... I went crazy over there



So I bought three packs of silken tofu to experiment with and 2 tofu desert type of things...green tea and almond flavour. Though the green tea one reminds me of those scented erasers..

Come live here! Are you german? because Dutch is somewhat similar to German, so it might be easy for you to learn.

I would recommand to take lessons of some kind... What kind of tips are you lokking for?

I am not sure, maybe anyone can recommend software or weblinks or something?



I can unfortunately not come live there, as I only just started my new job for which I need to learn Dutch - so of course I can't leave here (Germany).

Daar er in onze eigen taal niet zo veel op dit terrein te vinden is, is er nu een Nederlandstalige Dating mail-groep gestart.

Die gaat over het onderling contact hebben van vegetariërs, veganisten.

Dus een platform, waar je je ervaringen en ideëen kwijt kan.



Als nieuw lid mag ik nog geen link doorgeven, maar je kunt de link ontvangen via mijn privé mail adres: [email protected]

Hello folks in the Netherlands,

Does anyone know of a good club where they book music? My husband is a banjo player and is trying to get a tour together over there but is having trouble finding places to play. If you know of any clubs he could contact, would you let me know? Thanks a lot. Much appreciated.

It's been a while since I was in the Jordaan (excellent choice, though). Let's see...



For grocery shopping, a good bet would be the Elandsgracht. There's a supermarket and a health food store (called 'de natuurwinkel') close to each other. I'm not quite sure about markets.. I'm partial to the Albert Cuyp (at the Albert Cuypstraat ) myself, but I don't think it's close to where you are.



As for restaurants, in my (biased) opinion, De Bolhoed (at Prinsengracht 60-62; tel. 020-6261803) is the best. Do make a reservation, as it is quite a busy place. Then there are two others that are both fine restaurants, http://www.greenplanet.nl/index2.htm and http://www.waaghals.nl/. But like I said, I'm biased.

Thanks so much for the great suggestions! We went to De Bolhoed (huge portions) and Waaghals (the most delicious food ever). Green Planet was closed for renovations or something until the day before we left, so didn't make it there.



Thanks again, Finlay!

I live all the way up North hehe..but found a place in Rotterdam (where my aunt lives)



I'm thinking about the demonstration...not sure yet...'cause..if it's going to be or if it's possible that it'll turn out agressive/violent..that's not really 'my thing'.

I guess I need to read up about it some more?

The violence thing, yes... I know, it shouldn't go that way but there's a possibility it might turn out, regardless of initial intentions, sometimes things just get heatened up and out of hand. I disapprove of violent tactics when it comes to animal activism, because well... the obvious.



You contemplating going?

Yeah I am

It'd be my first ever protest thingy though.

I just thought I should start to get a bit more involved in stuff and also to educate myself about the things going on in the world and be aware of them, so I can take proper action..if that makes sense?



probably doesn't...but yeah contemplating.
