Burmese House

303 Bridge Rd
Richmond, 3121

I'd not eaten Burmese food before visiting Burmese house, so I didn't know quite what to expect. We visited on a Saturday and it was busy. Outside on the sign there was the large teapot, inside the on the ground floor the kitchen is on display.

I scanned the takeaway menu below, as I couldn't find it online, it seems to be pretty much the same as the main eat in menu.

We shared the 5 deep fried chickpeas with dipping sauce. These were pretty similar to falafel, the dipping sauce was similar to some Thai sauces.

The tamarind lamb was incredibly tender. We had this at medium spiciness and it was pleasantly spicy. There were only 5 pieces of lamb, which made the dish seem a bit small.

We had the hot version of the rakhine sliced fillet of fish curry, and it was spicy! The hunks of fish were firm and the eggplant accompanied it nicely. The roti was good too!

The service was a little below par, perhaps because they were busy, but some places seem to survive that... The bill with a couple of beers was just under $70. An interesting culinary experience, and the food seemed to fit in between the various surrounding cuisines I'd tried. I doubt we will sprinting across Melbourne to get there, but might pop in if we around the area.
