Before the opening of SHIRKHAN at the Foodhallen in Amsterdam, Indian cuisine was hard to find in The Netherlands. Yossi Eliyahoo – the creator and owner of SHIRKHAN, The Butcher (West), IZAKAYA and MOMO – found his inspiration for SHIRKHAN in London, where quality Indian food is served in almost every part of the city. He combined forces with top chef Hariprasad Shetty, who is originally from India and has an undeniable passion for Mumbai streetfood. Chef Hariprasad Shetty works for MOMO, IZAKAYA and The Butcher (West), and used the opportunity of SHIRKHAN to introduce The Netherlands to the unique flavours of tandoor cooking and Indian streetfood.
At SHIRKHAN a rich selection of authentic Mubai streetfoods is served with fresh and homemade products from the tandoor. Kebabs with Indian-style chicken and lamb, roti, chutney and salads are prepared on the spot and are wrapped in Naan Bread. Every wrap is full of Indian flavours and served at affordable prices. The typical Indian meat and wrap-like Naan bread is cooked in a traditional tandoor oven. The handmade clay oven with gold mosaic gives a unique flavour to the meat, giving it a distinctive and delicious taste.
SHIRKHAN is situated next to The Butcher West in the international food market the Foodhallen, at a prime location in Amsterdam West. This indoor market is the perfect place for people to enjoy different food concepts on the spot. When visiting the renovated historical tram depot, now called Foodhallen, guests can choose from a diverse selection of signature dishes. SHIRKHAN is a valuable addition to the international food offer at Foodhallen and it brings the buzz of Mumbai streets, the flavours and smells of Indian markets to the Foodhallen.
