Another Visit to Myanmar, Falls Church

Bob W. | Oct 23, 200202:59 PM    

The recent discussion of Burmese restaurants got me thinking about Myanmar on Lee Hwy. so off I went.

I tried three new dishes. This time I really tried to venture to the far reaches of the menu.

1. Long Bean Salad: Another winner from the salad section. Nice portion of beans (already sliced) in a warm dressing. I would love to know what's in their dressings.

2. Jack Fruit in Spicy Curry. Cooked jackfruit has the texture and appearance of slightly undercooked eggplant, and does not have much taste, but the sauce was delicious over white rice.

3. Sauteed Spicy "Sour Leaf." Listed under "Fries." Not for the faint of heart. The server said "it's kinda strong," so I knew there was a good chance I would be taking one for the team. Strong is a good word for this. Pungent also would fit. The sauce appears to include chili paste and dried shrimp. It's definitely an acquired taste.

Another table got an order of croquette-type fritters that looked really good. On my next visit I am going to try to figure out what they were and give 'em a try.
