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.

A few weeks ago I went out to Cabramatta for a look around and to have Sunday lunch. It had been a very long time since I last been there maybe 5+ years. One thing that I did not expect was how busy it was, traffic getting into the parking lot then the streets are filled with people! Looking around the stores for a while then set out to find a place to have lunch . There certainly is no shortage of restaurants bit overwhelming really , walking down the main street just picked a random place that looked good.
As soon I sit down some tea is brought out along with four small bowls of sauces, salt and pickled cabbage. On the menu for lunch was spring rolls with there accompaniments of lettuce , mint and shaved carrot. Then some crispy skin chicken with egg noodle soup and a dry beef and egg noodle. All this for a grand total of $28, I paid more for an entree the night before. Generous servings and all were very tasty.
After lunch I wondered around for a bit ,snap a few pics considered getting something for desert but was too full so then headed home.

I have walked past this place may times but never ate here so this time decided to give it a try. I had the Volcano Ramen which it name implies to me that it is very spicy but that’s not the case, sure its got some heat but not overpowering. Just the right amount for me, if you like “volcano” chilli you will need to add some extra. The ramen is good here perhaps not in the same league as my fav Ryos but still very tasty. Also check out the size of the spoon, its huge! The beef bento comes with a generous serving of rice, some nice spiced beef which is very tender and miso.
If your after a quick and cheep Japanese feed its well worth giving Ajisen Ramen a try.
