Immerse yourself in Syrian culture before noon at one of Almond Bar's convivial brunches. They're held on the first Sunday of each month, with the next one falling on August 5.

The Darlinghurst restaurant is usually only open for dinner, and these brunches are a great way to sit down to a shared morning meal — just how a Syrian family would do it. You'll be able to order a la carte, choosing from traditional breakfast dishes like fatteh ($18) — a layered breakfast dish of crushed chickpeas, tahini, fried bread and yoghurt — or the shawarma, which sees strips of beef marinated in seven spices, capsicum and onion, and served with a fried free range egg ($19). There are plenty of vegetarian options and, if in doubt, go for the breakfast platter.

Though there will be space for a few walk-ins, we recommend booking ahead to secure a spot. Brunch is served from 8.30am until noon.
