Sushi Chef | IZAKAYA

Horeca / Tourism
In October 2012 the city of Amsterdam has gained one new hospitality hotspot. In the vibrant area ‘De Pijp’ IZAKAYA has opened its doors. Located at the foot of the chique Sir Albert boutique hotel, IZAKAYA will prove to be a haven of indulgence.

IZAKAYA, best translated from Japanese, as ‘pub’ is a unique and vital cornerstone of the Japanese food culture, uninhibited and welcoming. The heart of this venue is the traditional Japanese Robata grill. Besides the grilled specialties, the well-balanced Izakaya menu also offers Sakana - a variety of small dishes, Osume – specially prepared food from the heart, and the Hibachi fire bowl - a traditional Japanese small cooking hot plate designed to hold burning charcoal. Naturally they also gladly serve market-fresh sashimi and mouthwatering rolls.

IZAKAYA is literally ‘raising the bar’ when it comes to beverages. It serves a vast array of house infused tonics based on the ancient Japanese spirit Shochu, but also a wide selection of cocktails.

This hip new venue is the place for the cosmopolitan and the adventurous.

IZAKAYA is now recruiting a fulltime:
