CHEF AT YOUR DINNER TABLE
We are excited to share our Burmese heritage with you. Burmese food, also known as Myanmar cuisine, is a diverse and flavorful cuisine that reflects the country's history and culture. It is a fusion of various culinary traditions, including Chinese, Indian, Thai, and Mon cuisines.
The cuisine is characterized by its bold flavors, abundant use of fresh herbs and spices, and a variety of noodles and rice dishes. Some of the key ingredients used in Burmese cuisine include fish sauce, shrimp paste, lemongrass, garlic, ginger, and chilies.
Some of the most popular dishes in Burmese cuisine include:
-Mohinga: a fish-based noodle soup that is often considered the national dish of Myanmar.
-Ohn-no-khauk-swe: a coconut milk-based noodle soup that is similar to laksa.
-Shan-style rice: a rice dish that is topped with a variety of meats, vegetables, and herbs.
-Burmese curry: a thick and hearty stew made with your choice of meat and potatoes.
-Laphet Thoke: a salad made with fermented tea leaves, peanuts, garlic, sesame seeds, and a variety of other ingredients.
Burmese-style fried rice: a fragrant and flavorful fried rice dish that is often served with a side of crispy fried onions and a fried egg.
