Saturday night…and I’ve got a date.
Don’t get too excited…It’s not with a guy ya’ll.
I met up with my bestie, Amy and her boyfriend along with some other friends in town from New York to enjoy an awesome dinner at the Bazzar. The restaurant inside the SLS hotel in LA. This place is stunning, and the restaurant is huge with a great bar. The chef, award winning Jose Andres is a genius. I’ts a modern dining EXPIRIENCE with spanish cuisine. This place , the vibe, is magical. Please excuse the, not so great pics. They were taken on my Iphone and the lighting was pretty dim.
Anyway, I walked into the elevator area to be taken to where my friends were, and this is what I came across… a huge mural of Michael Jackson, and this fabulous chair and lamp. Amazing.
Here she is! Bestie. Ex roomie, A hairdresser herself, we graduated from the Sassoon Academy together and have been inseparable since. You know how it is though once you start getting busy, getting boyfriends, moving further, it becomes harder to find quality girl time. When we do get to hang out, It’s like a day hasn’t passed.
We hung out at the bar for a bit, while our table was being prepared. All of the drinks on the menu sounded delish.
This was my choice.
Passion Fruit Up!
Orange rum, passion fruit and ginger-laurel syrup, topped with passion fruit foam.
It was heaven, not too sweet.
The cute ass napkins. I love them.
Once we were sat at our table, we had heard some peeps talking about the cart guy making his way around the tables making fresh “adult slushies”
Well, in reality they are their famous LN2 Caipirinha
Brazilian cachaça, fresh lime and sugar frozen by using Liquid Nitrogen. Tableside service .
They were unbelievable.
edible flowers and all. Nothing better. Along with a lil wooden spoon to eat like a slushy:)
OK… I have to talk about these “liquid olives”
Sounds weird, but If I hadn’t tried them, I would’ve missed out.
It’s the Bazaar’s most famous dish, basically olive-flavored liquid mixed with sodium alginate, put into a bath of calcium chloride to create the encapsulating thin membrane. The “olives” were then marinated in a mixture of olive oil, rosemary, garlic, and orange peel. If you get a chance to check the restaurant out, start with these little balls of flavor! yummmmm
Again, sorry for the shitty pics. I swear they looked much more beautiful in person.
These little wonton looking things are jicama wrapped guacamole cups.So incredibly fresh tasting .
Would for sure order again.
(these two aren’t my pics, but I found them online so that you could see what a beauty they are.
Their version of caprese salad
Using spherification technique so the mozzarella balls popped in the mouth!
And the favorite of the evening… The Philli Cheesesteak…made on “air bread”. Yeah I know. This is some fancy shit right here. I gotta be honest though, every should try this. I can’t even begin to describe how tasty this was. The “air bread” is crispy on the outside and hollow on the inside. It really feels more like a hollow cracker than bread. The air bread is then filled with aged cheddar sauce and topped with an ultra-thin slice of Kobe beef. WOW. what a treat.
I will definitely be going back. It was a new and fun dining experience. If you want to go and try it out, I recommend going with a few friends and splitting all the dishes. They are considered small plates (tapas). Make a reservation because it’s always packed. I asure you though, when you are seated, you don’t get the vibe of a super crowded place. It’s for me more of a special occasion type place because it is quite pricey. I considered it a treat , and a fun date night with friends:)
Please feel free to comment below if you have been and recommend a dish for next time!
