"Asean (sic) Picnic 2006" featuring Burmese foods - Coyote Point - 9/23/06

RWCFoodie Sep 12, 2006 12:22 AM

I received an email from another food group about an event coming up on 9/23 that sounds interesting:

"Here is yet another Sep. picnic/food event. I heard that the last time it was held at Golden Gate park and featured a lot of
interesting Burmese dishes. From what I've heard, Burmese satay is very different from that in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand or Indonesia. The spices used were very different."

Here's the link if you are interested in checking it out:

    Seems like we signed up for the same group :) "Asean" stands for the "Association of South East Asian Nations", a group of 10 countries comprising Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand (the original six countries), plus Burma, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.

    Seems like the picnic menu--already very tempting--only covers 4 of the 10 countries, but perhaps with better publicity the next picnics will have more representation from other countries. What a glorious feast that would be!

    Any hounds planning to go?

      Pia, thanks for the detail about the group - I signed up for it without really knowing much except that it sounded like good eats! A couple of us are thinking about going - I'll email you.

        I guess I could look for some info via Google, etc. on kueh lapis but instead I'm going to ask you! What is it?
        Thanks :-)

          I've seen kueh lapis, though I haven't had it, on the dimsum carts at at Koi Palace. I suspect they call it something else, too.

          There are various type of Kue Lapis in Indonesia, depending on the region. There is Kue Lapis Surabaya, Lapis Malang, Lapis Legit and more. Each one of them is quite different, in the amount of layers stacked, colors, flavors. It looks like the one they are selling at the picnic is Kue Lapis Pandan; it'd be green color and many layers stacked thinly. Yummy...
