Burma Burma is one of my favorite restaurants in Bengaluru and their classic Burmese dishes have won everyone's heart. I recently visited their new outlet in Forum Rex Walk, Brigade Road with an expectation to try out some of my favorite dishes, but to my surprise, this new outlet just amazed me in every possible way. Starting from the enchanting ambiance with soothing color combinations, wall paintings, Burmese decor items, indoor plants, etc - every nook and corner of this restaurant is picture friendly.
When it comes to Burmese cuisine, it may look so simple, but every dish comes with a burst of flavors. This new outlet has so many new additions to their menu and the team behind Burma Burma has carefully curated those dishes after their recent trip to Myanmar. You will get to try some dishes with a modern twist as well as some which can give you nostalgic memories.
My fictitious culinary journey to Burma started with a bowl of 'Mohinga Noodle soup'. The veg version of their National dish was simply amazing.
Pey Pey's Guava Salad had an interesting take on the guava +chilli combination. The flavors are so unique and you will crave more, soon after the first bite.
Another interesting and favorite dish from the menu was Semolina and hemp-seed crusted 'Crunchy Shiitake fingers' served with a creamy cashew and smoked Bandel cheese dip.
Edamame and Broad bean hummus served with Balachaung stuffed peppers and naan (similar to pita bread) added a rich mouthfeel.
For the main course, I had the classic 'Khow Suey' which is easily one of the best you get in the city. It comes with various accompaniments and this herb-infused coconut milk with noodles and vegetables is a complete meal by itself.
I love White tea with Burmese food and it was a visual treat for us when they brewed this special tea. They also have interesting drink options like Bubble tea and mocktails. I enjoyed their Wild Berry Bubble tea and to enjoy the tapioca pearls in Bubble tea, one has to use a slightly bigger straw. They surprised us by giving us straw made of rice (we call it Pasta straw).
For desserts, the Street style Burmese Falooda reminded me of the Thai dessert, 'Tub Tim Krob' and this one had balanced flavors. My favorite dessert, 'Pineapple Energee' with different versions of pineapple in one dessert, and the fav part which tasted like Pineapple upside down cake with a scoop of Pineapple ice cream and brown butter crumble was simply a heavenly affair. I am sure, I will try this again soon at Burma Burma.
Overall, I had a great experience at this new outlet and I can't wait to visit again for interesting Burmese dishes.
