Myanmar in Falls Church, oh my god

howler | Jul 7, 2006 02:54 PM

others on this board have raved about myanmar, so i was ready for good, perhaps great.

but myanmar is sensational. NOTHING i ate was less than perfection, and sheer love shone through in every bite i had. eating here is eating at your favourite aunts kitchen when shes in a mood to spoil you.

dishes you may want to check out (other than the ones mentioned in earlier posts) - wonderfully balanced mango salad, tofu in a tomato sauce thats a dead ringer for what we maharastrians call 'saar' and mutton curry. the tofu/tomato sauce dish is subtle and easy to dismiss, but its worth paying attention to. and the mutton curry - is it ok to admit i shed a tear or two eating it? (btw, its properly goat and not lamb, 'cos thats how we understand mutton in the subcontinent).

good lord, what a treasure trove nova is turning out to be. i think the alpha dog would go into sensory overload here.
