Are there Burmese/Myanmar restos in GTA? I know about Motherhome

Dean Tudor Jul 22, 2012 12:37 PM

There was a thread here about 5 years ago on sourcing Burmese restos in Toronto.

Can I request an update? I know all about Motherhome, with a lot of steam table items, designed for students and take-out..

I also know about Basil Thai at Danforth between Main and Woodbine, with its three (3 !) Burmese dishes...

Do you know of any others? I'm also checking out Naomi Duguid's new book on Burmese food (pub date Oct 13).

          Mainly tea leaf salad and steam table.

            do you like motherhome? i too would love to find some burmese options in TO, but it looks like this is it ... it's kind of out of the way for me, but i'd make the trek if you think it's worth it.

              Most of it is steam table, but if you go to Urban Spoon or Yelp, you can find some reviews that describe a variety of dishes, Also, from last year,

          Listen up hounds - just found out that Buffalo has a Burmese restaurant and I'm going next week so I'll report back. I am very excited and hoping for a good experience!

            If you are ever in the Buffalo area Sun Restaurant is great for Burmese. The tea leaf salad was good but not as good as in San Francisco. Prata and chicken curry were great. Deep fried gourd app was also very good. My husband loved the Amare Thar Hin (Burmese-style curry mixed with masala, tendered beef, ginger, garlic, onion and chili) and I preferred the Chicken Kat Kyay Kite (Traditional Southern Burmese flat wide noodle with hot and sour sauce, scallion, garlic, vatana bean, and bean sprout). A great meal and the prices can't be beat!

            Motherhome closed down awhile back for anyone who might be reading this now.
