Burma Burma has always been our favorite destination for serving classical and contemporary Burmese cuisine in an eye catching setting. Sharing boundaries with Thailand, China & India Burmese food is pervasively influenced by their food and then combines them with techniques, ingredients and flavors of its own to make something very subtle, delicious and unique. Their unique yet subtle delicacies are, mostly, served with a lot of accompaniments be it soup or boiled vegetables and herbs. They have the best winning combinations.
The interiors of the restaurant captivated me for sometime with its beauty and the decor with Burmese artifacts.
We started with Samosa Soup and Burmese Pepper Soup. Samosa soup is a popular street food in Burma which is tangy and loaded with spring vegetables and black chickpeas. The mini version of Indian Samosa had a crunchy thin covering which we ate immediately when it was served.
Cooked in traditional vegetable broth Burmese Pepper Soup was very mild and subtle.
For the Salads we tried Tea Leaf Salad, Sunflower Leaves and Crispy Wheat Flakes Salad and their most famous Raw Mango Salad. Tea Leaf Salad is an eclectic mix of fermented tea leaves, fried garlic, nuts, sesame seeds, tomatoes and lettuce. This salad is absolutely delicious with light and flavorful dressing.
Sunflower leaves and crispy wheat flakes salad is again something very unique for us with the crunchiness of wheat flakes in it. We loved it.
Raw Mango Salad is a tangy vegetarian and healthy salad loaded with the freshness of raw mango and vegetables. Roasted red chillis, crushed peanuts, lettuce and brown onions make it a savory snack. A Must Try !!
From starters we tried Grilled Mock Meat Skewers, Tohu Mash with Parantha and Lotus Stem Crisps. Made up of Soy protein the Grilled Mock Meat Skewers are grilled with perfection and best for vegan people. Tohu Mash with Paratha is again a lip smacking starter with the delicious flaky parantha. Lotus Stem crisps are lotus stem chips dusted with pepper and is a good munching option.
For the main course we had Oh No Khowsuey, Black Sticky Rice and Eggplant Tofu Mash
Oh No Khao Suey is a Burmese soup meal consisting of wheat noodles in a coconut milk broth with an array of toppings. This is one of the signature dish here and a must try. It is topped with veggies and lemon grass and you will like the little tangy flavor of tamarind in it. We loved all the flavors in it.
Overloaded with fiber and anti oxidants Black sticky rice are served with pickled vegetables and buttered chickpeas, we loved this main course.
Completing our meal with a beautiful dessert – Coco Pina was a delightful experience.
Overall food here is very good and service one of the best in Delhi NCR. One or two visits are not enough to relish upon their food.
