Myanmar Cuisine, Thai Cuisine - Pagan Restaurant
Myanmar tea and tea leaf lettuce are part of Burmese civilization and important in the everyday lives of the Burmese (Myanmar) and are served at the Pagan Restuarant in San Francisco. Myanmar and Thai curries combine onions, clove, lemon grass, coriander, Chilean chilli, seasonings and coirloin. The combination of these additives gives the food a seductive flavour and a profound taste and is perfectly suited to these aromatic herbs, making this joint meal a basic foodstuff on the pagan dining tables.

Burmese food industry in the Bay Area
It was inconceivable a ten years ago how exciting a kitchen is that is hardly to be found in New York or Chicago. Burmese food has been quiet in some Burmese towns for years, but this year it has taken to the streets: By December 2014, the authors of the food website Charhound had 28 Burmese eating places in the Bay Area - and that was a good five or six places ago.
Many Burmese have immigrated to the Bay Area since the 1962 coup in which a Burmese army jounta was deployed in Burma (Myanmar), and the Burmese communities are now among the country's ten thousand, one of the population. Burma's booming economy is due to some early arrival, who in the early 1980s brought Burmese food to the general population, and then the sudden, if unanticipated, 2000s virus hit of Burma Superstar.
California's Burmese cooking is so vibrant and rapidly developing that the food Melanie H. and Tyrone V. like to consume may not resemble much of what chefs do in Burma or what some new caterers are cooking. To put it briefly: Who knows what lettuce has never eaten.
By the time Philip and Nancy Chu opened Nan Yang in Oakland Chinatown in 1983, it was perhaps the first full Burmese place to eat in the Bay Area, if not on the West Coast. But Chu felt a vocation to keep boiling his homeland's food - through a life-long passion for it.
Born in Rangoon, the former capitol, a member of the bourgeoisie of China, this affection had led him to refuse a fellowship to studies magnetic resonance to follow his work. In 1969 he and his family were released from Burma under two conditions:
Chus were among the many Burmese in China who came to the Burmese people in the early 1960', displaced by anti-Chinese unrest and anti-intellectual persecutions. Everyone connected to the Bay Area China fellowship has siphoned them. He switched between architectural design and dining - one of them a famous Hofbräu for his roasted Turkey - before he and Nancy Nan Yang opened.
They share the meal between Burmese and Canadian cuisine. Their inspiration to Wayne and Tammy Lee, fans of the Burmese China fellowship, six month later to open Mandalay in the Richmond District in San Francisco, where the lees were serving a similar mélange. But Chu acknowledges that both diners languish. Then in 1985, San Francisco Chronicle reviewer Stan Sesser Nan Yang discussed the lettuce and pasta with coconuts.
Most of the meals ran out until 8pm, although Chu prepared more food than he ever had after Sesser had given him a few days' warning. The majority of the following authors who came to the Burmese food place described Burmese cuisine as the centre of China, India and Thailand cuisine, with sweet curry, savoury soup and exciting sauces.
However, there was one meal he did not want to Servieren, because he found it too repulsive for the outsider, until a author, who had been reading about Burma's practices of fermentation of tea sheets in grave tanks, demanded a tealeaf lettuce. In just a few years, lettuce had exceeded the appeal of lettuce.
In 1992 Nan Yang opened a second site on Rockridge, closed the site a few years later and retired from the catering industry in 2012. On the other side of the cove, Mandalay gushed until 2003, when its former proprietor was selling to a close relative, a more gifted chef. At about the same epoch, Burma superstars present proprietor Joycelyn Lee and her associate Desmond Htunlin came into the dining store because they could not conceive of leaving their favourite place.
Burma superstar, speaking on a slower Clement Street bloc, wasn't much to see in 2001, with atmospheric beers, a pavilion with a meal room eaten by synthetic fire, and an almost always empty room. It was opened by its proprietors in 1992, but nine years later they were tired and willing to resell.
For example, there was a cool pasta with 20 truffles that Lee liked, but in Burmese it was handsalad, and handsalad was not on the menus. So, she re-named him Rainbow Lettuce, and the court just started selling like fur. Lees cannot refer to a time when she felt sure of the Burma superstar's victory, but somewhere around 2005, the crowding in the dinning room buried on the pavement.
Lee says it was a favourite Burmese food in the streets, and clients couldn't get enough of the homemade rices of coconuts, as well as the tealeaf now prepared with added Roman leaves for a light crisp. Htunlin and Lee took over a friend's Alameda and turned it into a second Burma superstar in 2007 and opened a third store in Temescal in 2009.
Myanmar superstar had become a phenomen. Following the phenomena came Rangoon Rubys and Burma Houses and Pagans. The overflowing Burma Superstar line even contributed to changing the speed in Mandalay from drowsy to manual. But when Burmese food moved to its new land, it transformed.
Also, the contexts in which we are eating is different. The most important thing is who is eating the food is different. There is also a resemblance between newer dining and Burma Superstar's. It can be seen at Shwe Myanmar in San Rafael, whose meal - canned lettuce, sampling broth and everything - is modelled on the traditional dining establishments with a dragoon devoting to their beyonce-covers.
Myanmar food becomes Burmese-American food, just as what Americans consider Thailand and India food had coagulated a few centuries earlier: a brief cannon of food made popular by early eateries such as Nan Yang, Mandalay and Burma Superstar, pervaded by Chinese-American and Thailand cuisine. Pre-packaged tealeaf greens, which you can now find in food shops, are a slightly speckled greensalad.
People who emigrate from Burma to America have also undergone changes. Rather than working on the farm and in Burma's garages, they can become chefs and coaches. The guests of the Bay Area have been so enthusiastic about Burmese food that they have released some gastronomes for experimentation. Having spent the 70s and 1980s in China and Burma eating places, Lue abandoned industrial operations until 2012 when he brought a short-lived Burmese food wagon to the market that was circulating in SoMa.
This was followed by a series of pop-ups and half-cooked meals. Lue then decided on an empire-building strategy: to bring Burmese into the burg. In December 2013 Lue opened the Refined Palate in Orinda, in May 2014 the TW Burmese Gourmet in San Ramon, in March 2015 the Grocery Cafe in East Oakland and three week ago the Pacheco Bistro in Martinez.
They all go with the term "hole in the wall": scantily-lit, but far away restaurant in a centrally located location, each with a brief introduction to classic products such as teasalads and lettuce salad, gingerbread salad, dumplings, coconut pasta and a few cuys. He hopes that Hmong peasants in Fresno will cultivate Burmese veggies such as the" moringa" ("drum stick tree") and chin bong, the "sour leaf" that some prawn sauté in a few restaurant, and make the East Bay famous for fine Shan and Karen cuisine.
Its chefs are already making rare dishes for groups they order in anticipation, and Lue says he makes fermenting seafood pastes, seasoned dry anchovy and other aromatic spices for clients who are asking for "Burmese" food. Several of Burma's most prominent food products in San Francisco come from Wanna-E, a food vehicle that was only approved for road use two month ago.
The Wanna-E is led by a group of Burmese China boyfriends in the 1920s who came to the Bay Area in the mid-2000s. William Lee and his Sis Coco, a young graduate of the cooking college, joined forces with Zin Win and Rainy Shai to present the food of Mandalay, the town where all four spend their first four years.
These four won their first prize in a series of 50 meals, all reserved for their restaurants in case they open one, up to a meal with 10 specials. Lettuce of crunchy cut meat of pig with kale and lemon is a meal prepared by the grandma of Lees years ago.
Tealeaf lettuce with the hint of octopus and crispy squared peas "tofu" come with a sour, chili-laced tamarinds dip that Lee says is omnipresent in Mandalay. Even Burma superstar does not maintain the situation. Htunlin opened Burma Love in December, replacing some of the staple foods with new cuisines.
Lee also says she has just come back from a Burmese journey, inspires. She says new meals could arise from her journey, as well as a range of pop-ups to collect funds for student outfits. In addition, she came home with a deeper appreciation of the scope of her dining after speaking to a Burmese lady who operates a culinary college and parish-centre.
