The Bazaar by Jose Andres, Beverly Hills- and Happy 1st Bday to boy meets girl meets food!

Happy birthday, boy meets girl meets food! I can’t believe we have been at this for a year- being able to share our food adventures has been a delight, and we hope you all have enjoyed it as much as we have! Here’s to many more years…and what better way to ring in a birthday than at Jose Andres’ Bazaar?! We had the pleasure of going to Bazaar with our dear friend Josh and his aunt, and it was such an incredible experience. Everything was a fine-tuned show, from smoking cocktails to balls of mozzarella that exploded in your mouth. To me, the stand out dishes were the jicama wrapped guacamole, papas canarias and the seared chicken with mustard. The jicama wrapped guacamole was light and delicious, with a bit of crunch provided by fritos?! Ridiculous, but so satisfying. The papas canarias were amazing- the potatoes were a perfect snack, and we all wished that we had  had the mojo verde as a side dish for every plate! The seared chicken was what really made me realise why Jose Andres has the reputation he does; anyone who can transform plain old chicken into something that succulent and insanely delicious is a hero in my book. By the time we got to dessert (and had been moved to their patisserie), we were all in serious food comas, but I’m so glad we saved room for some sweet treats. Alex ordered a floating coconut island, which had lovely passion fruit flavours we’ve both been missing since leaving Australia. And my teensy tiny pecan pie cookie was easily one of the best cookies I’ve ever had, and well worth the slightly silly price tag. All in all, we were beyond impressed with the experience we had at Bazaar, from the impeccable service (they were so accommodating of our every whim, including Josh’s vegan restrictions) to the incredible flavours, and I hope we’ll be able to make it back again some day! A must visit for anyone who craves a brilliant fine dining experience. And again, thanks for your support over the past year, we couldn’t do this without you!

much love,

priya and alex
