Top 5 restaurants for Burmese cuisine
There is not much known about Myanmar's restaurants in Singapore, except that the Peninsula Plaza is the best place to get it in the city; it is the epicenter of all Burmese. Myanmar is probably Burma's best-known restaurant and has been mentioned several time in the press, with good reason: it is the best place to go if you want an introductory Burmese cuisine.
You will find a short introduction to what Burmese cuisine is all about on the menus. It' also the only Burmese restaurant at restaurant standard in Singapore, so the price of custom meals is significantly higher between $6 and $20. This means they have one of the most genuine and sturdy varieties of Mahinga ($8), a pasta meal in seafood stock baked with a cooked ball, seafood cake and onions.
It may also be the only place to find Burmese traditionals. Burmese Indians' FoodThis booth is in a crowded café near the Funan DigitaLife Mall and is the best place to taste the meal of the Shan, an ethnical tribe living in Myanmar. A must-have is her lukewarm fudge with pasta ($5) - steamed and melted spicy sweetened fudge crème is pour ed over pasta and covered with chickens, shallots foil and groundnuts and served with marinated acidic sauces.
As a speciality, come on the weekend - Shan potatoe ride ($ 4) is blends potatoe with paddy, shaped into a pie, and then sauteed. This hearty cooked paddy has an unusually smooth consistency and is served with a Killertomato Mince topping. China inspired cuisine from Myanmar's last imperial capitalYou will see many Burmese expats in this hidden café, which with its low desks and stools looks like a Burmese tea house.
It is a place specialized in Mandalay, one of the biggest towns in Oberburma. There' s an elaborate meal card with unfortunately only a short German name, which tells you what each meal is - e.g.'meat salad' - but ask one of the server and he will be happy to help you.
The Mandalay meeshay ( "rice pasta boiled in broth, then with melted coffee and a pasty flour-based dressing, rounded off with cilantro, chickens or pig meat, green shoots, dry chili and bulb olive $4.50) are two different cuisines. One is the tinned tealeaves (with a flavour similar to that of the traditional Mandarin herb - marinated cabbage) and other herbs. The other is the na gain ( "$12"), a tellapia filled with canned tealeaves and other herbs.
This spice never covers the naturally sweet taste of the seafood, which has a crunchy hide and wet meat. When you need a third course to round off your meals, the just as much loved seafood course is a good choice, Malayan ('12) - a peanut-like version of China's Malay chili dressing cast over stewed sauces.
The Burmese fellowship has expanded so strongly that it now has enclaves in various core areas in Singapore, the largest in Clementi, Myanmar. There is a Burmese mini-market in the centre of Clementi that sells important Burmese groceries and three cafés that sell Burmese meals and travel.
She offers not only a wide selection of classical Burmese cuisine such as Burmese bacon with ferment brown coffee bean, roasted dry chili and her own variation of Thailand's seafood cake, but also the more extraordinary ones such as porcotta lettuce and roasted celery. It'?s only $5 for a meats meal, two pages and a vegetables meal.
Classical favorites such as a hint of chocolate and tealeaf lettuce are also available here. This simple café - like many of the restaurants on Peninsula Plaza - serve Burmese food and raw rices the traditional way, but that's not the appeal here.
At 5pm, Burmese emigrants will flock in with their buddies or work colleagues and they will have Burmese dairy teas ($1), which is very similar to India's Tartar. The Burmese almost always enjoy it sweet and lactic. Gregory Leow has been a reporter since 2001 and has taken a short rest from his Singapore Press Holdings career to devote himself to his work.
