Travelling Jerusalem street food container Knafeh — which has popped up on piers and festivals across the city — is turning five, and is about to embark on an international tour. But, before it goes, Sydneysiders will have one last chance to enjoy the pop-up's Middle Eastern fare.

The Bearded Bakers (as Knafeh's owners are known) are hosting The Old City, a one-off immersive dinner that'll transport guests from North Strathfield to the streets of Jerusalem on Saturday, May 18.

The Bearded Bakers will take over the former Arnott's biscuit factory for just one night and transform it into a Middle Eastern-style souk (openair marketplace) and communal dining experience. The three-course menu will include the authentic eats that the gents grew up eating — as well as plenty of their famed knafeh (a Middle Eastern dessert made with syrup-soaked cheese and fine string pastry).

As the venue is not licensed, it'll be a booze-free event. Instead of cocktails, expect the drink pairings to include Middle Eastern coffee, tea and soft drinks.

What will remain is the group's high energy-style of food service — namely a whole heap of singing and dancing that accompanies all Bearded Bakers meals. It'll cost you $100 all up and reservations are essential.
