Burma, also known as Myanmar, is situated in Southeast Asia and shares borders with China, India, Laos and Thailand. Many ethnicities and migration from neighboring countries have enriched Burma's 1400 years of history with culturally, socially and culinarily. People used many different ways to travel to their destinations and before the invention of the airplane, railway and automobile, The Irrawaddy River was the main travel route in Burma. It flows from north to south and is about 1350 miles long. As young boys, we grew up near Irrawaddy River; we drank, swam, bathed, fished, cooked, farmed and transported from it. As people migrated from place to place, so did their foods, spices and culinary arts. Foods play an essential role of introducing and exchanging cultural differences, breaking language barriers and connecting people. Burma is known for its fine jades, rare rubies, hard teaks, godly pagodas and rich cultures but most of all, it is known for its tasty street foods, home cooking and  festivals. People have to travel many miles using various ways of transportation, such as horse carriages, ox carriages, bicycles, boats, trains, trucks and on foot, etc. to sell their foods in streets, markets and festivals. We were very fortunate enough to experience such amazing foods and cultures while growing up in Burma and we want to share them with the people in the states and be part of the melting pot capital of the world. Irrawaddy's menu is inspired by northern and southern parts of Burmese cuisines. While northern cuisines bring spicy, tangy and hot soup to cope with cold weather, the southern cuisines satisfy people with noodle {aka} ah thote, salads and icy sweets to cool off. We would like to invite you to have a taste of Burma and make it a taste to remember. See you soon!!!


Sincerely,
