The Burma Noodle Bar gives New Yorkers a taste of Myanmar'soul food'.
Of the many New York cuisines in New York that offer Asiatic specialities, Myanmar's kitchen - which until recently was insulated under a dictatorial regime - is rather overcrowded. The Burma Noodle Bar in Brooklyn, run by Eugene Saw, the Myanmar immigrant boy, is one of the few facilities in the town that offers only Burma food.
In Myanmar, a rare addition are leafy ferments from which Saw makes lettuce with tomatoes, chips of different types of bean. One of the typical meals of the land are the dumplings of dumplings, the saw with aromatic wels cowder, decorated with hard-boiled egg, peanut chips, coriander and a pinch of lemon.
Says he was raised in the US and the only true connection to his family's story is food. When he was a kid, his mom laboriously taught him how to counterbalance the aromas to make the food truly Myanmar. Growing up and beginning to live alone, he longed for the courts of his own youth and tried to restore them to be shared with others.

It was really exciting to see because I really enjoy Burma food and it's so difficult to find in New York. There are two stores of a restaurant named Mingala, one in the East Village and one on the Upper East Side, which recently left the store. I went to Together with a group of folks this evening and tried it.
The majority of the articles are susphi, not Myanmar food, and the Myanmar food they served was not the one I had previously known. One of us asked if they could make a lettuce and a lettuce, two favourites from other Burma eating places, and it turned out that they could make them after all.
They were both as good as I remember them in other places: crisp, spicy and with a beautiful crispy structure, decorated with almonds. Si Jet, a pasta meal with chickens that other folks seemed to like, was actually the least interesting of the group we had ordered. There are two curries, a chickens with pâté and a pig stomach with ric.
Seafood noodle ( "mohinga") did not have a fruity flavour, but was full and spicy.
