Welcome – Mingalaba! This was my second time trying Burmese Food in Singapore and my first visit to a Burmese Restaurant in Singapore – named Inle Myammar Restaurant. The word ‘Inle’ may sound familiar as there is a place called Inle Lake in Myammar. Just like there are quite a number of places named after Burmese places along Balestier and Novena area such as Shan Road, Irrawady Road, Mandalay Road and etc.
Inle Myammar Restaurant is located at Peninsula Plaza. Peninsula Plaza is located near City Hall MRT station and it is very famous hangout places for Burmese in Singapore.
I tried its set meal – $12.90++/pax (exclude 10% service charge and 7% Gst). Its set meal – allows people to choose 1 Main Dish + 1 Side Dish + 1 Drink.
I opted for Butter Flavoured rice with Chicken Curry, Saykalama “Bird’s nest drink” and Fried Tofu Fritters and soup.
Butter Flavoured Rice – I could taste the butter in the rice.
Burmese Chicken Curry – I never tasted Burmese Chicken Curry before. It is a bit spicy – acceptable level of spiciness for me.
Soup is okay for me.
I tried Tofu fritters. Quite okay. Small and crunchy.
I did not manage to take picture of the Burmese Bird nest drink. (the pink coloured drink). It’s refreshing and nice to drink.
Ordered a dessert – Shwe Yin Aye aka Myammar Chengdol. It has Chengdol, sago, coconut agar agar, white bread and jelly served with chilled coconut milk. Full of tropical taste and looks. It’s sweet and I did not expect that Burmese also like to use Chengdol and coconut for their desserts. As I tasted Malaysia Chengdol before.
I thought that Burmese Food tends to be salty than expected. However, after trying their desserts, I did not expect their desserts to be sweet.
If you wish to try Burmese Food, do come to Inle Myanmmar Restaurant and try out their all day set meal. It costs less than $20! You can also go for their lunch time promotion as well. Quite affordable price.
