Buffalo Burmese Restaurant - Review of Sun Restaurant, Buffalo, NY
Returning home from New York State, we flew back to Buffalo because we were on our way back to Florida from Buffalo/Niagara International Airfield. We' d just agreed to stay one and a half nights in Buffalo to look around the town before we fly back home the next sundown. When I was running around to walk and ask for the way, I came across this restaurant by accident.
Looking at the poster, it said: "Authentic Burmese and Thai cuisines. Think of my amazement finding a Burmese restaurant in the heart of Buffalo! I was welcomed by the maitre d' at the front office and spontaneously I talked to him in Burmese. Surprisingly, he answered me in Burmese!
Next day we left the hotel and went to the restaurant at 11:30am. He was the executive behind the table this week, and he just happens to be Burmese, too. So we ordered a dish of shrimps, curried chickens, roasted pumpkin (served with spicy/sour sauce) and raw rices, which came with the curried chickens.
I was a little disillusioned with the poultry pie, though. It was expected to be quite sharp and savoury, as it is usual in Burmese cuisine. So when the supervisor came by to ask what it was like, I said to him that the sherbet wasn't sharp enough. Said we could've said it to the barmaid when we ordered it.
Now, maybe the next in Buffalo, ever again. Anyway, it was a pleasant dinner as it was the first dinner I had in a Burmese restaurant in the United States since I came here forever. Beside the Burmese meals you can also get Thai meals, although we have not tried it.
I told the businessman on the way out how lucky he must be to work in a favourite restaurant. In the Buffalo area, I think there is a large Burmese municipality because there is a Burmese grocer' s near the restaurant. In fact, we stoped at this place to get some Burmese cuisine.
When I asked her where she came from, she said her home town was in Mawlamyine, formerly known as Moulmein, about which Rudyard Kpling, the renowned English author, had written in his poet "Road To Mandalay".
