On The Road With RL Reeves Jr: l’Entrecôte Mobile In Amsterdam Netherlands

l’Entrecôte Mobile In Amsterdam Netherlands

At l’Entrecôte Mobile In Amsterdam’s Foodhallen, the menu features exactly two items, a grilled ribeye steak sandwich with lettuce and butter sauce (beurre maître d’hotel) and steak au plateau.

The concern sources their bread from Bakkerij Kara Firin.

They only do one thing, grill beef, but they do it well.

l’Entrecôte Mobile Inside Foodhallen in Amsterdam Netherlands

On a recent visit to Amsterdam, I took a 15 minute walk to Foodhallen to see if they had any new vendors where I could spend a few hard-earned euros.

They did.

Upon ordering the French steak sandwich, the counter lady, who is also the grill cook, takes a small beef steak and places it on the grill. Perhaps five minutes pass and a perfectly seared medium rare steak is sliced and presented on a good quality sandwich bun.

l’Entrecôte Mobile only uses high-grade, free-range beef at their restaurant. This steer did not die in vain.

Inside the Foohallen there are nearly 20 stalls with foods ranging from Texas sausages to Vietnamese rice paper rolls. Over 37 million euros were spent transforming the 1900s-era electric tram maintenance facility into a trough for food loving Amsterdamers and tourists.

On visits to Amsterdam back in the aughts I remember the old tram building being used by squatters as a place to live. Oh how times have changed.
