We have introduced a couple of new venues to our Potts Point dining walk collection.
Bang Tang is situated mid-way down the lovely tree-lined Victoria Street, opposite the back-packer hostels that are fast reverting to their original residential mansion status, as the gentrification of the area continues. With half of the restaurant floor space dedicated to alfresco dining it’s a very pleasant place to spend a beautiful summers evening in Sydney.
Nat - the co-owner and executive chef - is originally from Thailand and has studied Le Cordon Bleu. He has spent many years working in Australian fine-dining restaurants - including the famous Sailors Thai - and also dined around the world at many top hat restaurants. Hey it’s all an education in food!
The first Bang Tang Salad Roll was based on Llankelly Place and was well-known by locals for its fresh lunchtime salads and South East Asian rice paper rolls. Nat delights in providing a high standard of service and his take on Indo-China food to his guests for lunch and dinner at the new site.
His co-owner Tommy is passionate about coffee and has also spent many years working in the hospitality industry. He loves the industry and tasting new food & wine on his travels.
You can look forward to clean flavours with a hint of heat in the generous salads such as Hun Bastard - with poached chicken breast, cashew nut, soy, ginger, honey and seeded mustard or the aptly named Naughty Crunch - with salt and pepper prawns, thin rice noodles, passion fruit, fresh pineapple, toasted coconut, crushed peanut, kaffir lime and mint.
This restaurant has already proved a big hit with the first groups we have taken for entrees. The UK guests love the strong Asian flavours and the mid-west Americans love the innovative use of ingredients they haven’t always come across before ie seafood:).
Perfect fare for summer in Sydney!
