Kazbah - Darling Harbour "Let's do lunch"

Crave Sydney international food festival (Crave SIFF) ended weeks ago. Here I am wishing that I should have gone to more Crave SIFF lunches, dinners and sugar hits.  However, I did check out Kazbah Darling Habour's "Let's do lunch" special with Mrs Ramen Raff. Even if it was just one Crave SIFF lunch that we were able to do, it was one absolutely amazing lunch.





Kazbah at Darling Harbour is located outside Harbourside Shopping Centre's ground floor. Kazbah offers a range of Middle Eastern cuisine. First thing I noticed upon arrival was the staff's exceptional hospitality. They were very accommodating and knowledgeable of the menu. The restaurant has a Moroccan style d├ęcor and a very relaxing atmosphere. It has indoor and alfresco dining. I read so many good reviews about their breakfast menu. Wonder what their lunch selections are like? They were delicious!

The lunch deal ($38):
1. Casablanca royale lamb tagine with roasted vegetables and couscous.
2. San Pellegrino sparkling water or a glass of Brown Brothers white wine
3. A choice of turkish coffee or tea.

The Casablanca royale lamb tagine with roasted vegetables and couscous (normally around $23) was like a groovy disco of flavours and colours, Oh Yeah! The lamb was so tender that all you need is a fork to pull it apart. I savoured each bite of the colourful vegetables. The vegetables were so tasty and perfectly cooked.

Chahi "Yemeny Sweet Milky Tea"

It was the first time I had Turkish coffee and I enjoyed it a lot! It was strong and slightly sweetened. Mrs Ramen Raff had Chahi "Yemeny Sweet Milky Tea" that was similar to chai tea. The tea was slightly sweet with a hint of cinnamon and ginger.

Any meal is incomplete without dessert right? As Mrs. Ramen Raff and I were browsing through the dessert menu, the brandy battered nougat dates with salted caramel sauce and halawa ice cream ($15) caught our attention. This has got to be one of the best desserts I’ve had in my life. The dates were sweet and mushy inside the delicious crispy brandy batter. I love fried desserts that are accompanied by ice cream and some sweet sauce. “The salted caramel sauce and halawa ice cream were delightful” says my taste buds.

We enjoyed our overall experience at Kazbah and we intend to return soon to try their popular breakfast menu. Our lunch at Kazbah Darling Harbour was very yummy for our tummies! How’s yours?
