Random musings of a uni student, on the hunt for the good things in life. Then again, aren't we all...

Breakfast is probably one of my more enjoyable meals of the day. Waking up to a plate of your standard eggs, toast and muesli, I really wouldn't have anything to complain about. After hearing rave reviews about breakfast at Kazbah, I knew I had to venture out to get a taste myself. Weekends at Kazbah can be quite the nightmare, queues and all. So I opt for Monday, 11am. Walking in, you already get a sense that this is definitely not a Western restaurant. Perusing the menu reaffirms this even more. Yes, this is breakfast but with a twist! Moroccan/Middle-Eastern inspired dishes jump out at me, from pork belly shish kebabs down to bisteeya.
The breakfast tagine ($18.5p/p) laced with roast pumpkin, spinach, caramelised onion and roast tomato seriously does not disappoint. Served alongside turkish toast and lebanese bread, each dip is immersed in what one can only deem vegetarian heaven. The fetta gives an added creaminess to the whole dish. I happily work my way through the tagine and can go for seconds. Except for the fact that I know I'll have another dish to devour.
Next is the chakchouka scrambled eggs and smoked salmon heavily mounted on toasted turkish toast ($18). The servings in this dish I would describe as generous. Although the chakchouka does not compare to the tagine, a worthy dish it still is. Not wanting to look like the fatty that I truly am, I take my time eating this dish. Carving away, each forkful is flavoursome, enhanced by the capsicum and tomato stirred in the egg. This really is my idea of a hearty breakfast.
Overall, a different brekky experience, with warm and friendly service and delicious food to boot makes Kazbah a thoroughly delightful restaurant. It's not wonder that it's been voted one of the most popular breakfast spots in Sydney.
Absolutely gorgeous breakfast menu review, I've just gone there for dinner and thinking of reviewing the Kazbah dinner menu. You've got me tempted into going there though, great pictures as well. Kazbah for dinner is also an interesting experience, and it was this review which drew me to it at all! Cheers.
