If you are someone who enjoys exploring new gastronomic avenues then Burma Burma is just the right place for you. This gorgeously charming eatery takes you on an exciting journey of Burma with an exotic menu featuring authentic Burmese cuisine with a smattering of quite a few delectable Pan Asian delicacies as well.
Tucked away in one of the by lanes of Kala Ghoda, the restaurant is a beautiful dining destination featuring dark wooden furniture, brightly colored umbrellas forming a canopy on the ceiling, and small Burmese artifacts peppered around to decorate the space.
Staying true to its traditional Burmese roots, the menu here is inherently vegetarian and features a delectable spread of authentic delicacies that offer the perfect melange of fresh ingredients and unique flavors.
If you are a tea connoisseur, then you will also enjoy their extensive selection of tea that pays homage to the love that Burmese people have for tea. Their tearoom offers an assortment of more than 50 fine blends handpicked from around the world, including their signature Burma Burma Blend that pairs beautifully with the food here.
As far as variety goes, the food here, much like the traditional Burmese platter, offers an array of flavors that draw influences from India, China, Thailand, and Laos. With a focus on using the freshest of ingredients, Burma Burma’s menu houses a range of salads (Thoke), soups, and delicious mains that are cantered around rice, noodles, and curries that are widely popular across Burma.
Coming to our recommendations, some of the popular dishes that we like from their stellar menu include their 'Shan Khow Suey', a beautiful Shan (state) delicacy of rice noodles with pounded mock meat, sweet soy & pickled greens.
Their Burmese salads are literal bowls of magic, each one more delicious than the last; our favorites include their famed ‘Tayat Thi Thoke’ or ‘Raw Mango Salad’ that features raw mango shreds mixed with roasted red chili, crushed peanuts, lettuce, and brown onion. Other highly recommended salads from their menu are ‘Tea Leaf Salad’, ‘Sunflower Leaves & Crispy Wheat Flakes Salad’, ‘Pickled Ginger Salad’, and ‘Lotus Roots Salad’.
Their delicious rendition of popular Burmese snack, ‘Paukse’ or ‘Steamed Buns’ featuring pillowy, soft buns with a scrumptious filling and a fun sauce on the side is another sumptuous little treat that you simply can’t miss.
Another great find from their menu is the ‘Malar Hot Noodle Bowl’. A perfect comfort food recipe, this zingy bowl preparation features the fruity tartness of Kokum and Burma Burma’s signature sweet and spicy Malar sauce that envelopes every inch of the thick noodles. A few other must-try recommendations include their street style ‘Chilli Garlic Udon Noodles’, tangy ‘Samosa Soup’, ‘Mock Meat Curry’, signature ‘Oh No Khowsuey’, and ‘Lotus Stem Crisps’.
Dessert fans must try their signature ‘Avocado Ice Cream with Honey Caviar’, which is Burma Burma’s one-of-a-kind homegrown recipe featuring creamy chunky flavors of avocado combined with flavourful bursts of honey caviar. We are pretty sure that this not-too-sweet ice cream is everything enticing dessert dreams are made of!
