  1. Since a little birdie asked, here's the Mandalay thread. I'll kick it off by saying that I've been going there for, um, years. Many years. Loved it back when they were in College Park, even though the ambiance was awful. Love it now that they are in Silver Spring. Even though the new place is twice the size of the old, there's still a wait some nights. The space is much nicer, though. Joe and Ang (the two brothers who often wait tables and oversee the dining room) are sweet. Actually, Joe is an old grouch, but with a heart of gold, and I just love him. Favorite dishes: KawPyant Gyaw (spring rolls) - always so fresh out of the fryer they'll burn your mouth if you don't wait to eat them. Gin Thoke (ginger salad) - very refreshing, good for a light meal in hot weather. There's a rice salad (forgot the name) that's tantalizing and comforting. KaYanChin Thee Tofu Hin is my all time favorite: tomato and tofu in onion curry. Ask for it spicy. Tofu Ohno Hin is tofu in cocnut curry. And don't forget sheji for dessert: warm cream of wheat and coconut pudding. I go there frequently with a group (one of whom is a new member here; hopefully he'll chime in with some recommendation). Some of us just ask Joe "what's good tonight?" He always takes care of us. Almost forgot the specials! On Thursdays, OhnHtaMin: chicken thighs in onion curry served on coconut rice. And on Sundays, DanPauk: also a chicken curry, but on a different rice. Damn, now I've gone and made myself hungry. Anyone up for a Rockwellian invasion this Sunday?
  2. Eve Zibart reviewed Myanmar positively in today's WaPo Weekend section, so it seemed a good time to start the thread.
  3. It doesn't look like there'a a thread for it yet, so I wanted to start one for Bandoola Bowl in Georgetown, at 1069 Wisconsin Ave (just towards the river from M Street). Bandoola Bowl specializes in Burmese and southeast Asian - style salads, recently adding noodle and rice bowls as well, at least on a seasonal basis. Opened and run by the family that used to run Mandalay in Silver Spring. I am totally rooting for this place to succeed. Everything I have eaten here has been fresh and delicious, including the ginger salad, roasted pork salad (both the salad and noodle bowl), and chicken salad -- flavors and textures both great, and everything is customizable though they'll definitely make recommendations. All of the dressings I have tried have been excellent (the green "garden" dressing that comes on the chicken salad is a definite favorite - I asked what was in it, and the answer was lots of herbs). Everyone who I have come across that works there is unbelievably friendly and helpful. If you're a return customer, you'll likely be welcomed back with a smile and asked if you've tried something that may be new on their menu or a special. If you're new, you'll likely (based on personal observation at least, definitely) be offered tastes and recommendations. I totally love this place. It's unique in Georgetown, and the friendliness of the folks here is just overwhelming. https://bandoolabowl.com/

  7. I really do not want to post this. The service at Burma Road was so nice that I do not want to post anything negative. I also hesitated because they have only been open two days. If I hadn't had the nanje thoke at Mandalay or the salads at Myanmar I would not have had such high hopes for a local restaurant. The menu is mostly chinese with and with the exception of the appetizers there were few Burmese dishes. We started with four appetizers. The tea leaf salad was the best dish of the evening - although it was not spicy as was indicated on the menu. The papaya salad tasted like raw cabbage. A tofu and chickpea paste appetizer was tasteless fried squares served with a sweet melted red lollipop dipping sauce. The hot and sour soup - our only Chinese dish - was neither hot nor sour. We then had two entrees and two side dishes. The pork with pickled vegetable(?) was quite good - slow cooked fatty pork in a thick salty gravy. Nanje thoke with chicken had gluey noodles and a fairly tasteless sauce. The young tamarind turned out to be a dish whose taste and texture reminded me too much of pure shrimp paste. The eggplant dish was flavorful but a bit too oily and shrimp pasty for me. This meal left me feeling sad. Most of the staff stopped by to offer help with ordering and to ask us how everything was. Their earnestness and concern was palpable. I could not bring myself to tell them how I felt about the food. I am hoping that others will try Burma Road and have a better experience. Toby
  8. The missus and I had a solid meal at Burma on 6th last night. Try the spare ribs with honey-- they were tender and full of flavor. The beef curry was disappointing as I had read in the Post and Washingtonian that it was packing some serious heat, but this was bland and flat. We also tried a dried bean curd dish with stir-fried veggies which was a winner. Despite the space being a former jujitsu studio or some such, the place has an agreeable warmth-- kind of like eating in someone's home. I'm sure I'll be back because I have a feeling there are some dishes on the menu that I'll enjoy more than that curry. Salads and apps were $6-8, and entrees around $11.
