Thai Food Influenced by Burmese Dishes 22 Jan 2013 Food & Drink | 2 comments

The first mingling of cooking styles may have begun several hundred years ago after repeated Burmese incursions into Siam (Thailand). The influence of Burmese cooking is still evident in Thai food.

Popular dishes like Khao Soy (a curry broth with meat, egg noodles, spring onions, and slices of lime) and Kaeng hang-le (a pork curry flavored by turmeric, ginger, and tamarind) are Thai dishes with recognizable Burmese roots.

Gabpi maawn—a popular Thai serving made from small fresh water fishes that are sun-dried and pounded— is also believed to be of Burmese heritage.

You can look for these dishes at The Bangkok Garden Seafood Restaurant in The Hotel Nikko Lake Royal, where guests are promised to “experience the best of Thailand’s culinary offerings.” The Seasons of Yangon Hotel at Yangon International Airport, and the Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake also have a little Thai food on their menus.

Thai restaurants outside of Yangon hotels include the Mai Thai Restaurant, Bangkok’s Kitchen, and Sabai Sabai. The Elephant House and Golden Duck offer some Thai fare, and Café Jasper and Fuji Coffee House have Thai food in addition to coffee.
