Squished between Bangladesh, China, and Thailand, Burma takes culinary cues from each of its neighbors. That’s why samosas, hot-and-sour lemongrass soup, and green-curry tofu all show up on the menu here. Fresh ingredients and crisp, clean flavors —even in simple stewed dishes—mean you can order freely and expect excellence, but don’t skip the lime-laced fermented-tea-leaf salad.
