Kazbah Balmain (CLOSED)
Time Out says
This Balmain favourite offers Middle Eastern fare that will keep you firing on all cylinders for the weekend. Brekky dishes include a lamb breakfast tagine with Turkish toast, pita bread and squeeze of lemon, or foul – pronounced like fool – medammas (a Middle Eastern peasant dish of beans mashed with olive oil and spices: yum). Fresh juices and Egyptian hibiscus tea feature, too.
If you want to go all out, order the royal breakfast feast. You need to be a group of six or more and book well ahead, but at just $27 per person for a meal that will fill you up till Monday, it’s crazily good value. Pace yourself: this is a breakfeast; a fantasia of Middle Eastern/North African inspired tastiness. Curb your enthusiasm for the carbs because the second course of breakfast Tagines done two ways – one with lamb mince, sausages, spinach roast tomato, capsicum, fetta, caramalised onions and eggs, the other a vego version – is yet to come. Even if you’re just popping in for some labne on toast or a simple omelette, you can’t beat Kazbah for interesting, tasty, inexpensive food and great service.
