Celebrate The Burmese New Year With A Village Meal & Yummy Coconut Ice Cream At Burma Burma
What Makes It Awesome?
Ringing in Thingyan, the Burmese New Year, with some delicacies from the Central and Southern parts of the neighbouring country, Burma Burma woos with the community meal. While the dishes can be ordered separately also, the fun lies in eating on bamboo plates covered with banana leaves. The meal is big enough and good enough for two people. It is a one-time serving and there are no refills, so the next round could be the full dish. It comprises Oh No Tamarind Cooler, Avocado Laphet Salad, Spring Onion Crisps, Palata stuffed with mock duck meat, Mustard Edamame Rice, Black Bean Chayote Curry and Tofu Water Chestnut Stir Fry. Flavourful, fresh and yum is how I describe this big plate. The avocado salad is a good mixture and the onion crisps go so well with the coolers. The rice couldn’t have been better prepared and tasted good with the chayote curry. The palata we ate without any additions as it tasted so good. The flakes melted in the mouth. The best dish was the sago dessert made of coconut milk and palm jaggery. The washable steel straws are a delight, doing away with plastic. This is the 4th edition of the Thingyan menu, inspired by the small hilly and coastal regions like Hpa – An, Mawlamyine (Burma – Thai border), Mon, Kayah, Kayin States. And before I forget, a hawker will come selling plum pickles, jujubes, and sweet coconut. That plate costs Rs 40 plus taxes and we loved the plum pickle. As if a huge meal wasn't enough, we gorged on Yay Gei Tho—coconut ice cream with peanuts, ice apple, nata de coco, black grass jelly which is simply another unmissable of this fest. The ice cream is prepared from the fresh coconut malai and also served in the same coconut shell. You could also opt for Rangoon Ruby which has coconut pannacotta, black sesame ice cream, yuzu curd and poppy seed crumble. The ice-creams are all prepared in-house and don’t have that sugary stickiness. The scoop isn’t too large either for the calorie conscious ones. If you are a soup fan, do try the lemony, tangy Rainbow Soup. And you can’t leave without a sip of the famous tea! Good service, good flavours, good ambience, it’s best to book your table for the restaurant is full most of the time. And before your meal begins, the server will cleanse your hands countryside-style—with betel leaf dipped in sandalwood and rose water. That’s one more reason to go while the fest is on. Remember this menu is on for a short time only. At Burma Burma outlets in Select City Walk, Cyber Hub & DLF Mall of India in Noida
