Prepare your Taste Buds for Authentic Burmese Cuisine!

How many of you have heard of Burma AKA Myanmar? Well, here’s a map courtesy of Google images for you.

I ask because I just had the most amazing meal that I’ve had in quite some time at a little very casual restaurant called Yoma Myanmar in Monterey Park. For those of you who don’t know me personally, my parents were born and raised in Burma, so I grew up eating Burmese food, rather than Chinese food. During all these years since I moved to LA, I have been scouring the area for an authentic Burmese restaurant that I could share with all my friends and you, and after an exhausting search, I’ve finally found one!

Brief statement about Burmese cuisine–it’s somewhat of a mix between Thai and Indian food with so many unique flavors that I can’t even describe to do it justice. You’ll just have to try it for yourself! Below are several photos that I’ve borrowed from Yelp, as you’ll notice, since I was so blown away by the food that taking photos of my food just escaped my mind. :)

1. Tofu Salad – Even if you don’t like tofu, I highly recommend trying this dish. Burmese tofu isn’t made from soybeans, but rather yellow split peas, which gives it an entirely different flavor.

2. Burmese Samusa – So different from the Indian version that many have had. The outside wrap is thin, which gives it a lighter crunch, and it isn’t prepared with the corriander seeds that often get in my way when I munch on the Indian version.

3. Moht Hinn Ga (Catfish noodle soup) – All I can say is–give it a chance. It’s one of my favorites and so soothing during this unusually freezing weather we’re experiencing in Los Angeles.

There are so many more dishes that I’d love to share with you, but let’s keep this short and sweet. Even though I’ve just had dinner, re-living my experience through this blog post is just making me painfully hungry again. Just believe me that you won’t regret visiting this hidden jewel!

Again, that’s Yoma Myanmar – 713 E Garvey Ave, Monterey Park, CA 91755

A Fairy Tale Home

I’ve never been much of a girly girl, which is exactly why I am so blown away by how much I loved this English Tudor mansion located in Windsor Square and listed for $4.495 million. It’s whimsical, yet very nicely done with sophisticated, modern taste. This 6 bedroom, 5 bath estate, boasting just over 6,000 SF, was owned by Bullock’s department store founder, John G. Bullock until 1962. It has recently been flipped into a beautiful masterpiece and expands over a lot of 25,262 SF. This is no ordinary flip!

It’s rare to find a flipped home with wall paper. See below for the tasteful wallpaper additions to the dining room and what would appear to be a lucky little princess’ bathroom.

This kitchen is a chef’s dream. A team of at least 10 could easily fit in here, which I’m sure was the plan. The only thing missing is your own deli counter against one wall. Hire the team over at Larchmont Wine & Cheese. You would be the owner of heaven in a house.

Being a swimmer growing up, I especially appreciate the beautiful pool, noting its irregular shape that adds yet another speck of creativity.

Call Tiffany Chin at RED to schedule an appointment to see this spectacular estate. You’ll be glad you called. 510.676.0036
