Kazbah, Darling Harbour

I know I've been very quiet lately and haven't been very active on the blogging front... But it's because I got a new job! It's at a very small company, but it's a start in my career so I've been busy working there from 9-5, cramming in as much work before Christmas. So unfortunately, I haven't had much time to go out. But my sister and I snatched up the chance to meet up with a very old friend (we've known each other since before I even went to Kindergarten!) over lunch as soon as the weekend rolled around.

Kazbah has been on my list of places to eat for a while now, for their legendary French toast. Look at it!

French toast, bacon, glazed baby figs, double cream& apple cinnamon syrup, $18.00
If there's one thing you need to order when you go to Kazbah, this is it. The bread had soft innards surrounded by a deliciously crunchy crust. Look at that fatty bacon as well! Tastes amazing but cannot be good for my arteries :P But the sweet figs paired perfectly with the bacon and syrup. I've become the biggest fan of the bacon and syrup combination every since breakfast at Pancakes on the Rocks!

The camel burger - camel kafta, grilled eggplant, rocket, tzatziki, haloumi & chips, $21.00
Our curiousity got the best of us and we ordered the camel burger. What would camel meat taste like? It reminded me of beef, though there was a distinct smell much like lamb. The taste wasn't too prominent because there was a lot of spices used within the patty to give it flavour. And I suppose it's always hard to discern differences in meat patties! The Turkish bread was charred to give it a lovely crunchy edge. The chips here are worth mentioning because of the seasoning! I love some spiced chips (:

Chahi - yemini sweet milky tea, $4.50
This tea had nice hints of ginger and cinnamon, but wasn't too strong. Shame they used a teabag for this! I'm always disappointed when I order tea out and instead of loose-leaf, I get a teabag. It is quite dissatisfying. I am however, admiring the crockery (:

We walked to San Churros and spent a significant amount of time catching up there over cold drinks as it was a hot day. Nothing like air conditioning in shopping centres to beat that!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas filled with joy and happiness. Wishing you all the best!

  1. What a fun catch up with friends! I've only been to Kazbah for their breakfast banquet which is epic! :D Sherrie, I hope you and your loved ones have a great Christmas!

    1. I've heard very good things about their breakfast banquet! Though there is so much food to send one into a food coma! Aw thanks, Lorraine (: I hope you had an equally good one and may the new year bring you and your family all the best!

  2. I loved the lamb tagine there but it was quite heavy that it should be shared! Hope you had a lovely christmas xx

    1. I'm looking forward to the lamb tagine when I go back next time! :D I do believe a lot of their breakfast menu is quite heavy, but who feels that when you can share such delicious dishes? ;) I also hope you had a wonderful Christmas filled with love and joy. All the best for the new year!

  3. i've walked past this place many times but have never tried it, i might give it a try now, that french toast looks amazing!

    1. The french toast was really good indeed! Though my picture makes it look tantalising... in a disgusting kind of way :P The entire breakfast menu had me drooling!

  4. Love this place, it is one of my favourite brunch spots. I always end up getting the same thing though, their targines lol

    1. Which targine would you recommend out of all of them to be the tastiest? :D
