Secret Burmese Restaurant

When I first heard about this "secret" restaurant, I was immediately intrigued. Although I grew up in Southeast Asia, I've never actually tried Burmese food. The restaurant operates out of a home kitchen, which leads out to the backyard dining area. Calling the place rustic is an understatement: a couple picnic tables and fold-out chairs, Tupperwares filled with onions and cilantro, and flasks of complimentary tea. The food is home cooking at its best.

The menu is entirely in Burmese.


Coconut noodles comes with hard-boiled egg, shredded chicken, and crunchy split pea fritters. And the tangy noodle salad is the perfect balance of texture and flavor.

Prata and chicken stir fry

Prata is an Indian flat bread with a flaky croissant-like texture.

The dry curry chicken, with onions and tomatoes, is eaten with the prata.

Two very satisfied customer.
