As an avid politico/news junkie, I am following the events unfolding in Burma with fascination. Learning more about Burma (or Burma Also Known as Myanmar, as the CBC says) and even reading a great novel set in Burma called The Lizard's Cage by Karen Connelly. Wondering about the cuisine and about where I could sample it. I imagine there are influences from Thailand, China and India but I understand from reading threads on other boards that there is a distinctive Burmese cuisine -
However, in my searches of TO resto sites, I have not found any references to Burmese (or Myanmar). Does anyone know if there are any Burmese restaurants (or possibly festivals or community church/temple dinners) in GTA?
(I know I know! that for the most part the people of Burma are poor and starving, so thinking about food may seem incongruous, but I find learning about a people's cuisine helps me understand their history and culture).
