De Foodhallen

indoor food market in an old tram depot


International indoor food market the 'Foodhallen'

An indoor food court - inspired by Torvehallerne in Copenhague, Mercado de San Miguel in Madrid and the Borough Market in London - that consists of a large hall with over 20 different stall restaurants.

Around the stalls are low and high tables, bar and lounge tables where you can sit and eat your dishes. Drinks should also be taken from different places. There's a large rectangular bar near the entrance and some smaller wine and beer bars in the middle of the hall.

Historic tram depot

De Foodhallen is part of De Hallen Amsterdam, a complex of buildings which used to be a historic tram depot and that dates back to 1902, when the electric trams started to be used. In this garage the tram ended its journal tour and it served also as a maintenance place, which was its role until 1996.

Hip and cool

The Foodhallen is the place to go for lunch or dinner when you like to taste small culinary dishes, served in street and barfood style in a hip and lively atmosphere.

On the menu

Each stall restaurant offers a limited number of dishes of different specialities, like fresh seafood and fish soup (Le Big Fish ), typical Dutch bitterballen (De Ballenbar ), delicious and healthy Vietnamese street food (Viêt View ), Japanese sushi and yakitori (Meneer Temaki , high-end Mumbai street food (Shirkhan ), and grilled and roasted porc (The Rough Kitchen ) to name a few.


If you want to go out with your kids for dinner come early in the evening when there are many families with one or more children sitting together, while later in the evening the audience changes into a 'hip' audience.
Favourite dishes for kids are the Funky hotdog (Bulls and Dogs ), pasta for kids with tomato or bolognese sauce (Pasta di Mamma), and Aberdeen Angus beef burger (The Butcher )

Adjacent to the hall a new restaurant with workspace facilities opened its doors end 2016: Kanarie Club (former restaurant Meat West).

The Foodhallen have been open since 2014.
