Bazar is a foodie institution in Amsterdam.
The location is unlikely; an unassuming entrance onto a street that is either a vibrant market (Albert Cuypmarkt) or, after 6, a run-down looking mess. Inside however, is one of the more unique interiors in town.
The menu seems to be south-east Mediterranean and near-east, with staples such as the house humous, tahini and babaganoush. The kitchen is open until one after midnight too.
The portions are huge, which makes Bazaar really good value. Better than the food is the atmosphere and energy. It’s possible to just sit at the bar in the middle and soak it all in too.
