I knew I was in for a unique experience when I saw the use of pita bread and lamb in the dishes on the menu at Tang Bistro. These are not the usual ingredients you expect to see used in Chinese cookery.
Thankfully the servers were ready and keen to give me an education as to the whys and the how comes of the foods on the menu.
Tang—for those of you not up on Chinese history (like me)—is the name of the dynasty that presided over the most prolific period of the Silk Road trade route and the reason why ingredients like lamb and pita bread and spices like cumin and chilli appear on the menu.
Have a look at what we ate:
