It was time to catch up with the K sisters and Miss Pear and today it was brunch at their favourite Lebanese brunch place – zaatar on Sydney Road in Coburg. Unfortunately, Miss Pear wasn’t able to make it so it was a double date with the K sisters. The K sisters got there first and got a table by the window. Mr D and I got there and Miss Candy and Mr D went up to order a brunch feast (if I get any of the food wrong, my apologies since all I did was eat HOHOHO!). When they came back, the table numbers were on wooden spoons which was so adorable!
I got the chai latte and it wasn’t creamy at all.
Chai Latte (small) – $3
First salad (I’m not too sure what it was called) but it contains rocket, beetroot, feta! THIS WAS SO DELISH! Who knew we could be friends with salad?
I’m not usually a fan of tabbouli since they always pack in the onions and I’m not a huge fan of onions. This tabouli was AWESOME SAUCE. Lots of parsley and tomatoes other little knicks and knacks and it was oh so refreshing. Glad Miss Candy decided to get it.
Tabouli (regular) – $4
Mr D’s favourite – the chili lamb flatbread. He definitely chowed the whole thing down and loved the chili in it, gave him an extra kick up the patootie. It was a very lamb-y flavour and he said it was seasoned very nicely. HE LIKES!

I was more of the oregano flat bread fan. More simple but bursting with flavour. It looks so simple, yet it was amazing. How does that even work??

Middle eastern are known for their dips, so it wasn’t a surprise that we got the dip plate. The dips include humus, eggplant and labne (yoghurt) with turkish bread. The Turkish bread was so fluffly and a tad toasty on the outside and the dips, OH EM GEE they were AMAZEBALL! Eggplant dip? THAT IS THE BOMB! My favourite dip! The labne was pretty good and humus wasn’t too bad either. Definitely a recommended dish if you drop by here.
Dip Plate – $9
We also got the spinach and cheese pie which had Bulgarian fetta (how fancy schmancy). I found this to be a tad too salty for my liking though.
Spinach and Cheese Pie – $3.50
We also got a soujok pizza which was on a zaatar bread with Turkish sausage, haloumi, tomatoes, capsicum and onions. This was oh so amazing. Definitely my favourite dish at Zaatar. Everything was perfectly balanced, not too salty, not too soggy and a crisp base. LOVE IT!
Soujok Pizza – $6
Finally, if you get too full from the ginormous orders, you can take it away and eat it at home in your PJ’s whilst binge watching Netflix. How convenient.
It’s a very warm and welcoming venue, family friendly, lots of delish food with plenty of choices to choose from. The food is amazeball and you will get full, no question about it. The service was a bit average but they are super duper busy and they don’t take bookings either. Tip of the day – early bird gets the worm and definitely get the dip plate and the soujok pizza. I shall be back zaatar!
