Having spent some time in Burma as a child, I have been looking for really good Burmese food in the area for a quite while. I have tried all of the existing Burmese restaurants in the area with an open mind, but have usually come away with the feeling that something was missing or not quite right.
No more. Tonight I found a treasure of a restaurant. The food was exceptionally varied and spot on with freshness, crispiness and spice The decor was tastefully well executed with the right splash of cultural Burmese artifacts highlighted by vibrant but not garish color. The service was prompt but not hovering. The serving pieces and glassware were tasteful but not overly trendy. It all seemed very well thought out, but not overly conscious. Can you tell I was impressed? The major drawback is this restaurant's location. It is in Sterling and not easy to find, even if you know the area. But don't give up, the search is worth it!
The restaurant is called A Taste of Burma, at 126 Edds Lane, Sterling, VA (703) 444-8510
