Kazbah, Darling Street, Balmain

Kazbah, Darling Street, Balmain
Saturday 1 December, 2007
Open since 1998 Kazbah serves a selection of North African, Moroccan & Middle Eastern-inspired dishes. After my recent trip to Dubai, in which I lugged home a decorative tagine, I was keen to return to the 'Home of the Tagine' in Balmain.
Kazbah is a bright, happy place and attracts a boisterous crowd. The yellow walls create a warm atmosphere and the staff move around the floor serving each table with ease. This morning my breakfast buddy and I were on a mission - the breakfast tagine.
We arrived and discovered a queue out the door onto the footpath. Fortunately my breakfast buddy had booked a table so we breezed past the queue to our table. Within moments we were served water and a large glass jug filled with mint. There were already menus on the table however we knew what we wanted.
After ordered we were delivered two fabulously different plates - one red and one blue - and a Middle Eastern tile where the tagine would be placed. The anticipation was immense as we watched food being delivered to the tables around us.
The tagine arrived and the lid was lifted off to reveal a bubbling, steamy concoction of lamb mince, sucuk, feta, spinach, capsicum, caramelised onion, tomato and eggs. A side of turkish and pida bread arrived separately. Where to start?
The breakfast tagine was seriously good and spicy. We enjoyed every mouthful and struggled to finish it off. For $17.50 this is good value and the coffee is sensational - we had to order a second round.
