After conversations about cultures, food and people stories with the restaurant owner. 3 recently arrived Assyrian sisters from Syria prepared and served Assyrian traditional foods/cuisine to the restaurant’s patrons who are also local resident of Katoomba/Blue Mountains region. The night featured a brief history of the Assyrian people, culture, dance, food and fabulous traditional dress and other costume.
