T0he tastiest piece of news we'd heard in a while was when Burma Burma opened its doors for dine-in, takeaway, and home delivery in both Saket, Gurgaon and Noida. They're following all safety protocols with an eight-step hygiene process including fresh order preparation, kitchen deep cleaning, and regular handwashing after each step.
Started by childhood friends-turned-restaurateurs Ankit Gupta and Chirag Chajjer, Burma Burma is a window into the southeast Asian country’s heritage, culture, and khaana with delicious vegetarian and vegan delicacies. The restaurant owes its origins to Gupta’s Burmese roots and brings authentic flavours to the table.
Ornate bells, reminiscent of those that toll outside pagodas, hang over the central tables. The walls are adorned with elements and figures found in ancient Burmese tattoo art, and embroidered shawls have been used to upholster the furniture at Burma Burma; you’ll also find handicrafts from across the country perched on the tea bar. Expect lots of paper-mâché craft, lacquerware tiffins, and tea kettles that are unique to Myanmar.
With so much more than khao suey on offer (the Burma Burma vegan-friendly Oh No Khow Suey is yummy), Burma Burma has a well-curated menu that will get your taste buds tingling. The Samuza Hincho, which is our very own humble samosa served with a spicy broth, is highly recommended. Try their Burmese style flaky paratha with a side of creamy corn and also enjoy forkfuls of their tea-leaf salad. We’re so excited to dig our spoons into some Burmese goodness, again. And don’t let the words ‘vegetarian-only’ scare you off – we honestly don’t think you’ll even notice.
P.S., these lovely folks have also come out with their Burma Burma DIY kits for us to make our own Burmese cuisine at home.
