From now on, things will get worse as we all face Ice Age 3 disturbing our daily life. However, if you want to escape reality, drop by at Bazar to enlighten your soul. Even though Bazar has actually been quite a settled name throughout the last decade, I couldn’t resist reminding you once again.

If you’re willing to take a trip all the way to the Albert Cuyp to see what I’m talking about, I can assure you will not be disappointed. Walking into Bazar still gets me amazed and excited every time, and I can’t wait to get settled down. Luckily there’s always a host to show you where to enjoy your night in this stunning, double floored Maroccan/Turkish/Greek/Arabic fusion restaurant. As you are guided to your table, the immense space with typical Mediterranean details draws the attention. For instance the bar built of exotic cans that you pass by while at least 15 staff members are awaiting to take you to the next level. Is this Amsterdam happening?

I’m taking the rest of the day off, celebrating holidays at Bazar. هتاف!

Somehow this feels more like having dinner somewhere else, and escaping Amsterdam cold. It rather feels like being somewhere far away enjoying the good life with comfort food and a vibrant atmosphere. The way the staff communicates by clapping, for instance, makes me feel on holiday trip in my own home town.

As the entrance is pretty impressive, so will be the rest of your precious time. I could go on to describe their menu, but why don’t you have a look for yourself? Sure I’m curious to the courses that draw your attention, but I can assure you that ‘Irfan’s starter’ is a great success straight away. I’m taking the rest of the day off, celebrating holidays at Bazar. هتاف!
