A Vegetarian Pan-asian Delight

Burma Burma is a rare treasure in the city of Gurgaon. A pure vegetarian restaurant with a vast menu, it never lets you miss the presence of meat. Burma Burma definitely exceeds expectations in terms of its authenticity, variety of dishes, and service. It is an experience you should not miss.

For starters, here we have Crunchy Tofu Bao, a Chef Recommended dish. Baozi, or bao, is a type of filled bun or bread-like dumpling in various south-asian cuisines. There are many variations in fillings and preparations. In its bun-like aspect it is very similar to the traditional Chinese mantou. The soft steamed bread allows us to become creative with tangy, spicy, flavourful fillings. Crunchy Tofu is definitely a good combination with the bread.

Next up, we have the Burma Burma “OHN NO KHOWSEUY” signature one bowl meal of coconut milk stirred with lemongrass tamarind, diced asian vegetables, Served with DIY toppings. It is available in Choice of Udon, Hakka, whole wheat and flat noodles.

History: Ohn no khao swè is a Burmese dish consisting of wheat noodles in a curried chicken and coconut milk broth thickened with gram flour (chickpea flour).The dish is often garnished with crisp fried bean fritters, sliced raw onions, chillies, crisp noodles, and slices of hard-boiled egg, and zested with lime or lemon juice and fish sauce.

In this case, the Ohn no Khow seuy was made vegetarian, but there was nothing missing in its flavour! The aroma of coconut and lemongrass is the beauty of Burmese Cuisine.

As you can see here, there were a wide range of dressings given with the Khow seuy: Chilli Flakes, Lemon, Spring Onions, Peanuts, Fried Onions etc.

We also had Brown Onion and Roasted Chilly Sticky Rice. It was served in Banana Leaves and tasted like a tangy rice pudding. A different dish I must say, It may not be for everyone.

We tried another Khow suey from a choice of 6 different khowsueys. This one is known as Schwedagon Khowsuey. It is essentially Zesty Noodles with tomato and creamy gram flour curry topped with our signature coconut mayo.

We ordered 2 khow sueys and both of them were very different in their flavour and texture. One was a noodle soup, wet base with vegetables. While the other was creamy and pasty. They both tasted mind-blowing.

This is what I love about Burma Burma: They maintained their splendid variety of dishes without compromising on diversity in taste. Another thing is the great hospitality. They treat you in a very loving manner and you enjoy the food more because of the smiles of the people who serve you.

A wholesome experience, I highly recommend Burma Burma.

Cost is around Rs. 1500 for two persons

Enjoy my Beautifoooodies!
