Brunch at Kazbah, Balmain

Chickpea fritters and pork belly shish kebab

The destination:
Kazbah, for a midday middle eastern flavour fix in the heart of buzzing Balmain

The vibe:
A big, brash, buzzing brunch crowd of all ages, queuing out the door for a coveted big table

The eats:
– Breakfast tajine (lamb mince, sucuk, spinach, roast capsicum, roast tomato, caramelised onion, feta, eggs, turkish toast and lebanese bread)
– Chickpea fritters with a pork belly shish kebab, labne, baby spinach, roast tomato, poached eggs and capsicum sauce
– Moroccan mint tea, fresh watermelon juice and Turkish coffee

The verdict:
Big ticks for the hearty, huge servings, perfectly poached eggs and beautifully spiced Moroccan tea; the kid-friendly factor and vibrant atmosphere. I just wish the Turkish coffee was a little stronger and sludgier, the chickpea fritters spicier… or maybe it’s just me, always wanting flavours that pack a punch!
