It took multiple attempts before our family of three could have a meal at Burma Burma restaurant and tea-room just off Park Street. They accept bookings for dinner, but only upto 730pm, beyond which you have to try your luck – and you might not...get lucky on weekends!
Burma Burma occupies the ground and mezzanine floors in an old building, so one gets an impression of space. The décor is subtle and it matches the Burmese theme. The crockery and cutlery are excellent – their napkins, made of thick grey paper and adorned with their logo, deserve a special mention. The menu is all vegetarian, and offers typical Burmese fare. The staff are well-trained and courteous – they offer prompt and unobtrusive service.
We ordered Burmese Pepper Soup, Grill That Bao, Oh No Khowsuey Splits and Stir Fry Vegetables (Burmese Style). The food turned out to be excellent and the helpings were generous too. The service was prompt and unobtrusive.
We decided to forego dessert and order tea instead. We ordered three types, including Ginseng Oolong and Strawberry Aloe White Tea. We were rather surprised to get three pots instead of the three cups we were expecting, but all of them were tea excellent and we nearly finished all the pots.
I have not yet had the chance to visit Burma (now called Myanmar), but I would certainly like to go there after visiting Burma Burma!More
