This brand-new opening right by Shoreditch High street station is one I would fully recommend, as one of the only restaurants in London that serves authentic Burmese cuisine. A relatively small menu with a great mix of vegetarian, fish and meat dishes is designed to share amongst the table. A favourite in our group of diners was the hake masala, perfectly cooked and served on top of a baked potato rosti surrounded in a masala sauce.
With so many restaurants saturating the London market, this Burmese cooking offers something a bit different from the many Thai, Vietnamese and other Asian restaurants on the scene.
