Nowadays before travelling I do a lot of research. I plan. I make sure that I have read reviews so there is the smallest risk possible of eating somewhere rubbish. I guess it’s because I’ve got little ones with me now who are not so easy to uproot and go somewhere else.
So, on a cold and wet evening after a visit to the Heineken experience in Amsterdam, we were pleasantly surprised to find this fabulous restaurant by on the ubiquitous Albert Cuyp Straat. We had intended to go to a sushi place but it was closed (despite what the guidebook said!). Serendipity is a wonderful thing.
Bazar is deceptively enormous! It’s in a former Dutch Reformed Church so the ceiling height allows for the most wonderful lampshades. There is a large bar in the middle of the first floor which serves all kinds of drinks – Middle Eastern and Western, hot and cold.
And the food? Well…the food is simply stunning. It’s a wonderful mix of Middle Eastern dishes served all day – breakfast to late night snacking with heary lunches and dinners in between.
