Wahh Tee Burmese

October 1, 2014

Chicken curry w Myanmar biryani rice - 2

J's comment > not bad; one of the better biryani rices I've had; curry flavorful w nods to the Indian spices; chicken passable, on the firm side; side salad just that - a side of julienned cucumbers that kinda worked when you mixed it in the rice and curry

Complimentary deep fried samosas - 2

J's comment > not bad; really crisp samosas, vegetarian though, the potato cubes on the inside were still in cube form yet melted delicately on nibbling into it; sauce wasn't spicy but the samosa was good either with or without;

FYI, we got this on the house as they were the last two available

Pork curry w Myanmar biryani rice - 2

J's comment > exact same curry base and rice as the chicken above but pork was slightly hard (well, harder than the chicken which was already on the firm side)

Beef curry w coconut rice - 2

J's comment > 
exact same curry base as the chicken and pork above, but the coconut rice, whilst very coconut-y on its own, was not noticeable in the least after mixing in the curry, whilst the biryani rice managed to hold its own; beef tender

Coconut milk noodle soup: Wheat flour noodle mixed w boneless chicken curry - 2

J's comment > texture of the egg yolk mixed into the soup gave it a not unpleasant texture; strong coconut flavors; noodles firm

Pennywort Salad: Pennywort leaves mixed w shrimp powder, bean powder, cut onions, lemon juice and fish sauce - 2

J's comment > a decent salad, I would definitely pick this over the avg caesar and green salad; really hard to describe the flavor of pennywort but the fish sauce was present (just a touch), and was tad salty; leaves had a nice chew to it

Myanmar tea leaf salad: Fermented tea leaves mixed w assorted fried beans - 2

J's comment > very crisp beans; strong black tea flavor

Fish Noodle soup: Rice noodle in fish broth, mixed w banana tree root, lemongrass and cilantro - 2

J's comment > didn't get the fish broth flavor at all; liked the rice noodle, better than the noodle in the coconut milk curry (note to self, maybe ask the kitchen to switch the type of noodles around next time?)

Pork Fried Noodles: Wheat flour noodles mixed w sliced pork, cabbage, shredded carrots, bean sprouts, onions and cilantro - 2

J's comment > avg fried noodles; I think this was the same type of noodle as the one in the coconut milk curry 

Shrimp curry on regular rice - 1

J's comment > lovely curry, same as the chicken, pork and beef above, but the shrimp was definitely 'off' - it was mushy

Complimentary desserts

Sooji - 2

Sticky rice - 2

J's comment > not bad; FYI sooji is semolina; both had similar flavors yet different textures; 
both were on the caramel-y side but in the right balance, not too sweet; the sooji was mealy yet firm, the sticky rice firmer still and slightly chewy like sticky rice is wont

Cendol - 2

J's comment > really light coconut milk w jelly pandan (didn't get the pandan flavor at all though sadly)

Complimentary Chun Guang coconut candy - 2

J's comment > not bad; hard coconut candy (seriously, you'll crack your teeth trying to crack this candy) w strong coconut flavor; this was definitely made for keeping in your mouth until it melts away

Myanmar milk tea - 2

J's comment > essentially the Japanese-style milk tea (my fav is Kirin), but w a touch more cream and sugar
