Myanmar new menu

We had lunch earlier today at Myanmar after not having been for a couple of months. They do have a new menu. All the American items are gone, so I couldn't have fish fingers and french fries (just kidding).

It was probably the best meal that I have had there. The ginger salad was as good as ever. The menu now lists lentil fritters as an appetizer, and the graham fritters come as a salad. We had the lentils, which had a very crispy crust like the graham fritters. The inside was light as could be. Very yummy with the dipping sauce. We had goat curry, which is listed on the menu as mutton, but the description says goat. It was definitely goat and typical of their excellent curries. The dish came with a nice mix of bony and off-the-bone meat. The best item was the roast whole tilapia was the best single fish I have ever had. It was very crispy and tasted of smoke from the roasting and whatever nice rub they use. A sautee of onion, tomato, and cilantro on top was excellent.

It was packed when we arrived at 1:00, and we had to wait for a table. Several groups came after us, and there were still groups waiting for tables after 1:30. Even so, the service was quicker than usual, as there were two women waiting instead of the usual one.

Prices on entrees have gone up a couple of dollars, but it is still quite a bargin, with most things $8 or so. The most expensive thing I recall is the fish at $10.99, with a fillet instead of whole fish being a dollar less.

If you like this place and haven't been for a while, it's time to go back.
