Basso Aarhus - An Italian food experience

For godt og vel en måneds tid siden fik jeg muligheden for at afprøve en af Aarhus nyeste restauranter, ved navn Basso. Jeg inviterede min veninde Alisa med, så vi sammen kunne prøve stedets italienske specialiteter. Det skal lige siges, jeg havde ret høje forventninger, da det er Thomas kammerater, som bestyrer stedet.

About a month ago I had the opportunity to try one of Aarhus newest restaurants, with the name Basso. I invited my friend Alisa to try out their italian specialties. It must be said that I had high expectations since it is Thomas friends who runs the place.

Basso Aarhus ligger i skolegade, lige i centrum, til de af Jer som gerne vil have mulighed for at kunne gå rundt. Desuden er der rigtig gode parkeringsmuligheder i nærheden også! sidenote. Thomas var en smule misundelig, da det ikke var ham, som skulle med og det forstår jeg godt! Min veninde og jeg var også ret excited over, at skulle ind og afprøve deres 10-retters menu og det viste sig også at leve udover alle forventningerne!

Basso Århus is placed in Skolegade, in the center, for those of you who like to be able to walk around. Besides that there are great parking options nearby as well. Sidenote. Thomas was a bit jealous that he wasn't the one going, and I totally understand! My friend and I were pretty excited to go try their 10-course-menu and the experience exceeded all of our expectations!

Vi blev mødt af skønne velindrettede lokaler med et fantastisk lysindfald, fra de store smukke industri vinduer på første sal. Basso Aarhus er fordelt på to-etager og trods der ikke er vinduer i kælderen, så har de formået at skabe den hyggeligste stemning, perfekt til arrangementer. Vi fik hængt vores overtøj, blev vist hen til vores bord og så ankom de ellers med den bedste Aperol Fizz (som den hedder), vi begge nogenside havde smagt. They know us to well.

We were met by well designet rooms with amazing lightning, from the big industrial windows on the first floor. Basso Aarhus is divided into two floors and though there might not be windows in the celler they have created the most cozy environment - perfect for events. We were seated and shortly after we were served the best Aperol Fizz (as it is called), we had both ever had. They know us to well.

Herefter fik vi serveret appetizers som smagte himmelsk! Not kidding you, det ser ikke ud af meget, men det smagte helt fantastisk.

Afterwards we were served appetizers which tasted amazing! Not kidding you, doesn't look of much, but it was great!

Forretter, denne aften bød blandt andet på tatar. Jeg havde aldrig smagt det før og må indrømme, jeg var en smule skeptisk, men det hele røg ned - så lækkert var det!

______

First course, this evening we tried Tatar. I have never had it before - but I ate everything - so damn good!

As I said, de har virkelig kræset om detaljerne, for at give dig den fulde oplevelse! For mig, giver det bare dét ekstra, at alle rum er gennemført og det har de virkelig formået.

______

As I said, they truly had an eye on the details, to give the total experience. For me, it just gives that extra that everything is thought through and they really manage to do that!

Hovedret og det bedste selskab! Jeg tror vi brugte godt og vel 3,5 time derinde, vi kunne snildt have brugt mere tid! Det var sådan en hyggelig måde at få catchet op på. Nu havde jeg min søde veninde med, men jeg ved at Thomas og jeg også ville nyde det. Man rammer nogle andre, emner og så sidder man bare og hygger om maden imens. Social dining, that's my thing! Du får afprøvet en masse forskellige og nye retter, alt imens du nyder det selskab du end er i, om det er veninde tur, kæresteaften eller om I er en masse afsted - så er dette den helt optimale måde, at tage ud og spise på sammen!

Main course and the best company! I guess we spend 3,5 hours in there, and we could easily have spend more. It was such a cozy way to catch up. I brought my sweet girl this time, but I know that Thomas and I would enjoy it as well. It gives you time to discuss deeper topics, while eating. Social dining, that's my thing! Such a great way to try out different courses while enjoying the company you are in, whether it's a girls trip, romantic date or if you are a bunch of friends - this is the absolute way to do it!

Jeg er en rigtig sucker for dessert og dette er en af de bedste jeg har smagt! Hold nu op for en pistacie is, hvilket normalt ellers ikke er den variant jeg plejer at vælge, men hvis denne var på menuen, ville det uden tvivl være min nye favorit! You have to try it! *bemærk, at menuerne selvfølgelig skifter indimellem.

I am a real sucker for dessert and this has been one of the best I have ever tried! Damn a pistacie ice-cream, which is normally not the flavour I would choose, but if this was on the menuen it would without doubt become my new favorite! You have to try it! *Notice that the menu changes ones a while.

Et tip er hermed givet videre, hvis I har mulighed for at komme til Aarhus (den er forresten netop åbnet i KBH også), kan jeg varmt anbefale Jer, at booke bord på Basso. Det er en af de bedste madoplevelser jeg nogensinde har haft. Jeg er ellers ret skeptisk, når det kommer til anderledes madoplevelser, men jeg smagte det hele og det var alt sammen positivt! Det er en skøn måde, at få afprøvet nye retter på og samtidig være social på en anden måde, end hvad du har prøvet før. I deler madoplevelsen, hvilket jeg personligt synes er genialt (Thomas med, da jeg altid spiser halvdelen af hans ret, da den lige pludselig er mere spændende end min egen - er jeg den eneste?). Det bedste er det hele er, at det er overkommelige priser, hvor alle kan være med!

This tip has now been forwarded, if you ever have the opportunity to go to Aarhus (just opened in CPH as well actually), then I can only recommend you to book a table at Basso. Without doubt one of the best food experiences I have ever had. Normally I am skeptical when it comes to try out new things regarding food, but I tasted everything here and it only ended up being a positive experience. It is such a nice way to try out different courses while being social in another way than you have tried before. You are sharing the food experience which I find brilliant (Thomas too, since I normally eat half of his dish, since his suddenly becomes more interesting than mine - am I the only one?). The best part, it is affordable for everyone to try out!
