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 degustation. You need to be a group of eight or more and book well ahead, but at just $25 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 eggs done three ways on Turkish toast with merguez sausage and haloumi is yet to come. But once you’ve lubricated your stomach with viscous Turkish coffee, you can handle anything. 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. That’s why it’s number one.
