Silk Road Chinese – Haymarket


Have you ever had a Chinese hamburger ? I had never even heard of such a thing until I randomly came to eat at Silk Road Chinese.  The restaurant it self has some interesting decor different than your typical Chinese place in Haymarket. Grape vines hang from the roof and the walls have bright murals of camels crossing a desert.

On to the hamburger its a soft bun filled with lamb , onion and capsicum with a bit of spice. Tastes quite good  , unusual to have Chinese style flavors with bread but it makes for a nice snack. Its not that big so unless you have a small apatite you will need to order another dish to go with it. The fried shredded beef with rice was nothing special but for $8.80 its a a big serving.  Xinjiang style kebabs which are skewers of chicken or lamb coated in a spice mix which has a strong taste of  cumin and I am sure there are lots of other spices in the mix too.

Its always good to try something new so if your in the area give a Chinese hamburger a try.

    Walked passed this place heaps of times, and never thought of going in, but the burger intrigues me, so will duck in next time now.

    Chinese hamburger….never heard of it but it looks really good! Kind of sounds like a stir fry on a bun. I’d give it a try!
