Restaurant Review – Burma Burma
Of all the places in DLF Cyber City there is one restaurant that stands apart the moment you read its name. Burma Burma and as the name suggests they are into Vegetarian Burmese cuisine along with being a Tea Room.
Since we have never tried Burmese cuisine we were quite curious and honestly, a little excited too since the restaurant serves vegetarian food only, we actually wanted to see how good will it be.
Inside the restaurant is not too big, but is spacious enough and very well decorated with various props and items from the Burmese culture. It is difficult to sum the ambiance in words as the restaurant uses multiple colors with some wooden furniture that make it look and feel authentic.
One just cannot miss the big bells hanging from the ceiling that have been used to decorate the place and give it a monastery like feel.
Walls on all 4 sides are filled with admirable artwork and can prove an engaging option while you wait for your food.
Overall, it looks like a meticulously crafted artwork and certainly conveys and upscale feel to everything.
In appetizers we ordered Paukse which is steamed bun with various kinds of fillings, the ones we tried were brown onion and roasted chilli with mushroom paukse. The Bun was really fresh and was white in color while being really soft to eat.
Before we ordered anything, we were provided a sampler of various toppings that can be used to add extra flavour like Peanuts, lemon, fried onions and though initially we did not realize the use of it, we did once we ordered our food.
We tried the Khao suey first and totally loved it. It was absolutely different from whatever we have had till date anywhere. It is a thick variant of noodles served with gram flour, tomato curry and thick coconut cream. The gravy was mild and had a unique taste of coconut cream to it.
Also provided were 4 types of sauces and the one in red was simply too hot, or most likely the hottest we have ever tasted. This is one sauce you have got to be very careful while you use.
Next up was Tohu Mok Palata which is a Burmese tofu cooked with onion, tomato and some spices. The texture is something like the dry yellow urad dal and is served with flaky Burmese parantha that resembles our malabari parantha. When the taste/texture is so similar, it is very difficult not to like this dish.
This is no doubt one of the best veg restaurant, as a matter of fact one of the best restaurants around. The ambiance is authentic and classy, the service is good and the food is simply class apart.
