LANG ISLAND CITY - Burmese Bites, a beloved grocer who queues up at Queens International Night Market every week-end, will open a dining car at Court Square in Long Island City on Tuesday. Myo Thway - whose cuisine won a Critic's Pick in the New York Times last year - will serve his genuine Burmese cuisine on workdays in the garden in front of the Long Island City Courthouse on Jackson Avenue between Thomson Avenue and Court Square, opposite the Citigroup Building.
In the first few week he only wants to work from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. when clients can see some of the meals for which he is known, among them the flat bread made out of flat bread made out of flat bread, which is boiled, unfolded and boiled on a grill plate.
His favourite meal is Keemaalata, which is made from barbecued pasta filled with chopped chickens, onions and eggs and covered with a gherkin yoghurt topping. A further favourite on the menue is the chickens and curries with a side of plunging pale.
Ohno Kaukswe, a pasta with coconuts, is also on the list. They also plan to serve Mr. Mahinga, a favourite seafood broth, which according to Thway is often regarded as the "national dish" of Myanmar. The Burmese Bites has signed a deal with the city's parks department to run the franchise at Court Square Park until 2021, the company said.
The Thway will be in the garden from Monday to Friday from Tuesday. He' ll keep serving lunch at the Queens International Night Market in Flushing Meadows-Corona on the weekend, where he has won a fan base as one of the most beloved salesmen at the week to week-festivals.
