California-nized Burmese Cuisine at Daw Yee Myanmar Corner in Silverlake
I enjoyed the refined Burmese dishes that are being served at Daw Yee Myanmar Cafe in Monterey Park, which opened about 3 years ago. Earlier this year, their second location opened in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles. Aside from the slight variation in the name from the first location, the dishes this place serves have some recipes tweaked to become vegan and/or gluten free. And that is a wonderful thing to know as some people like myself enjoy eating vegan and/or gluten free from time to time. However, the flavors you expect from these popular Burmese dishes are there.
Fried Myanmar Tofu (made out of chickpea flour, vegan and soy-free)
Potato Cakes stuffed with seasoned ground lamb (also available with ground chicken as well)
Kima Platha with ground chicken (options of lamb or beef are available as well). Reminds me of Malaysian Murtabak.
Tea Leaf Salad
Mohinga (National Dish of Myanmar)
Garlic Noodles with Duck
Salmon Belly wrapped in Banana Leaf
Pumpkin Curry (vegan and gluten-free)
Vegetable Curry (vegan and gluten-free)
Dessert Cake Combo
Swye Kyi Cake made with semolina wheat, egg, butter.
Young coconut water for your beverage, and young coconut meat for dessert
