Sunday Bites

Food and fashion with a Middle Eastern flourish.

Got brunch plans for this weekend? You could go to your local cafe and order the same old avocado and poached eggs on sourdough, but you've done that a million times. If you want to spice up your Sunday morning, head to Surry Hills, where Lebanese restaurant Nour has recently launched its brunch with a twist.

Like any true Middle Eastern feast, leaving hungry is not an option. For $60 per person at Sunday Bites, your table will enjoy a three-course share-style meal with sumptuous dishes that'll put your eggs benny to shame. Think sujuk scotch eggs with tahini and Lebanese katayef pancakes with buffalo ricotta and smoked date ice cream, just to name a few. The set price also includes a cocktail on arrival: Ketel One Citron, Aperol, agave, cardamom and pineapple juice. DJ and singing duo Afrodisiac will be on the decks providing the Sunday brunch beats.

Through until December 10, local Sydney designers will also hold 'flash-mob' runways so the fashion-hungry can be doubly fed.  The restaurant floor will be the runway, allowing diners to get an up-close look at collections by emerging designers such as Tand Swimwear and Vanessa Moe. Following the launch phase, the fashion collaborations will drop down to once a month — but the food and beats will be on offer every single Sunday.
