Bazaar – Philosophy of Food in Bali

Contemporary Dining in Seminyak

(Update: Bazaar - Philosophy of Food closed down late 2015) Bazaar - Philosophy of Food is a fine restaurant, bar and gourmet deli located on Jalan Batubelig, Bali’s up and coming dining street west of the main Petitenget hub in Seminyak. Brainchild of world traveller and foodie Eva Neshat, Bazaar presents a lunch and dinner menu, featuring innovative modern dishes created by Chef Justin Wong.

Bazaar – Philosophy of Food welcomes diners to a cosy and chic dining hall that is both voluminous and stylish. High open beam ceilings let in gleams of sunlight by day, while evenings are warm with subtle lighting. A tree adorns the centrepiece lounge in front of the kitchen counter where leather cushion chairs are laid out, great for cocktails and pre dinners. Adjacent is the main dining room with a cosy European décor and styling.

By day, the adjoining gourmet deli offers a wide selection of fresh bakes, meat pies, wines, cheeses, and cookies. All these are homemade in its in-house bakery, which also serves the fresh Paninis, toasted treats and ricotta that you’ll find on the menu. Come dinner time, the restaurant and bar, snug behind the dining room, take centre stage.

Chef Wong’s innovative signature dishes dominate the menu. Firstly, our char-grilled squid salad (IDR 85,000) arrives on the table, artfully presented with dices of bell pepper, chickpeas, arugula, parmesan and a douse of zesty lemon oil. Grilled to perfection, the textures and flavours tangoed well with every bite. The Hokkaido scallops next, is a unique treat. Three seared Japanese scallops cooked three ways are served with cauliflower, nestling on a bed of homemade truffle paste and micro coriander (IDR 125,000).

The highlight of our visit at Bazaar is Chef Wong’s signature beef cheek (IDR 225,000). This wholesome five-hour braised imported Australian beef cheek comes served half immersed in port wine jus, and is accompanied by three generous dabs of silky potato puree, sprigs of asparagus and garlic Portobello mushrooms. The tenderness and richness of the meat is exceptional.

Bazaar presents a dining concept that is fresh, intercontinental and health-conscious. Basically, what you find here is all around fine European cuisine. Celebrative moods are covered with a range of cocktails available from the well-stocked bar, and champagnes and wines from around the world are stocked in the deli.
