Shop stop: SLA in Amsterdam

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.
