Hg2 : The Hedonist

Bah Bah

Bah-Bah’ means ‘good’, or ‘bravo!’ in Azeri and, while perhaps not entirely modest, is a very apt description of this reliable local restaurant, attractively bedecked in Azeri traditional handicrafts. Always busy and with friendly, if sometimes a little over-earnest, service, Bah-Bah is a great place to sample Azeri cuisine for the uninitiated. A live band provides an appropriate musical backdrop of traditional folk music, sometimes breaking into less traditional Beatles’ medleys over an electronically-generated bossanova beat, which does lend a certain tropical pool-side atmosphere. The food is also good. Dushbara (mutton broth with small raviolini-like meat-filled pasta twists) is to die for and the shüyüd plov (herby rice) with narbiç (chicken stewed with ground walnuts and pomegranates) are also stand-out. If in a larger group, consider also a saj – meat and/or fish and potatoes served sizzling on a traditional wide skillet.
