Has anyone has tried adding Asian flavours to their bread?

Yes, I've tried shredded kaffir lime leaves, ginger, galangal and lemon grass (all in separate batches), but didn't like the end result. IMO, bread and Asian flavors don't go well. At least, not the flavors I used (or in my creations!).
Note that sesame oil is not a true Asian flavor: it is also used a lot in countries around the Mediterranean and in Africa. I've not tried it, but it sounds good to me (sesame seeds on top are also nice, so why not oil?).
