said Slomó Köves, chief rabbi of the EMIH – Hungarian Jewish Federation.
“There will be no Hungarian food on the menu, because I wanted to create something completely new in Debrecen, and hopefully in the national gastronomic offer”, Ahron Faigen, creative chef at Hamsza, who was instructed to Debrecen. a few months ago, said with ambition.
The restaurant will be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Thursday and from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
