What a wonderful event! I got to the Burmese Food Fair in Woodside late, about 3:30 when it was due to end at 4. Some of the dishes were already gone, but what I had was a major treat. I'm vegetarian, and there was still plenty for me to choose from, and I know more of the options included fish and meat.
Why is there no really good Burmese restaurant in New York (that I know of)?
My choices, delicious all, were Yellow Tofu Salad, Somosa Salad with Chickpeas in Spiced Yellow Split Pea Broth, Yellow Split Pea Fritters, and Semolina Cake.
Here's what the full menu looked like: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_7n6YWCIvfqA...
The event was held in PS 12 in Woodside, with plenty of tables and seating, and a very friendly vibe. I definitely will plan to make it back again next year if at all possible.
