Interested in trying different cuisine? Try Burmese food. We went to Rangoon Ruby this weekend and really liked the food. Amazed to see the variety of the food they can offer.
1. Lettuce Wrap
2. Tea Leaf Salad
3. Rangoon Ruby Noodle #burmesefood#foodaholicsinbayarea
At the suggestion of my homie Luke, I tried out the amazing #TeaLeafSalad & Mango Chicken at #BurmaSuperstar when I was in Oakland last week. SO DAMN GOOD!!! I need to find something like this now that I'm back in LA! Foodie friends, got any suggestions for me? #BurmeseFood#SigmaArtLens
[tl;dr] i like. go try.
Glad there was a long line at the Vietnamese place across the street because we ended up trying this place! 😋 #AmaysHouse
Laksa with vermicelli ($10)
Crispy Prata with Yellow Peas ($5.50) I found the prata a little bit oily but the small bowl of yellow pea spread was surprisingly delicious!! The Vegetarian Spring Rolls ($6) was pretty standard but fillings were well seasoned filling and the outside stayed nice and crisp!
The Myanmar Tea Leaf Salad ($8) and Burmese Style Biryani ($11.50) were very flavourful! The spices and flavours were quite dfferent from what I am used to, but I enjoyed it!
The Fish Cakes ($6.50) were a little oily again, but the flavour and texture were on point!
We decided to end our meal with an order of Burmese Style Samosas ($5) Simple, light, and so goood 🤤
Dear Vancouver, when are we gonna get more Burmese restaurants? I had my first experience with @burmasuperstarsf and it has since become a staple everytime we visit Alameda. This is their spicy and crispy chicken, brown rice, coconut rice (not in frame), and their famous tea leaf salad: lettuce topped with peanuts, yellow split peas, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, garlic chips, and fermented tea leaves. A MUST try 😍 #michelleeatsthebay
Burmese cuisine needs more recognition! Thought that it would be similar to Vietnamese food but they are pleasantly less overwhelming. Got the stamp of approval from grandma's maid from Myanmar too! #inlemyanmar#burmesefood
Mae Hong Son, formerly part of Myanmar and not far from the current border. Just a three hour minibus ride from Pai, this peaceful mountain town is a perfect opportunity to check out Burmese cuisine and art while still in Thailand. One day would be enough to see the town, although it’s also a good base for trekking and nature tours. Check out the morning and night markets around the lake for the cheapest eats (and try a tea leaf salad! 😋) #maehongson#burmesefood#explorethailand
Coconut Tofu Noodle from @goldenowl.hoothoot in La Puente, Ca 💚💚💚 This is literally one of the best things i have ever had EVER 🤤 so yummy, flavorful and Vegan! No animals harmed in the making of this dish 🌱
A mild yellow tofu curry simmered with caramelized onions, turmeric and coconut served over yellow noodles, topped with onion and cilantro😍
This is a more psychology based post, I meant to put this up on #worldmentalhealthday but with travel I've had no time :( This is still related to nutrition
Studies have shown that 'mindless' eating can occur for many reasons, such as watching tv or your phone when you eat, boredom eating, stress eating, eating when you're not hungry but it's a habit to eat at a time at, being served too large portions and...and so on! So what's the issue with mindless eating? It makes us over eat. One study found that when served a large portion size people ate 30% more than if they were served a regular serving size.... but most people in both groups thought they had eaten the same amount! More studies looking at media use while eating resulted in people eating more and not noticing. One theory says this is because we're not paying attention to our bodies as we're too distracted by external factors like the plate size or some instagram banter
So what can we do? Mindless eating is one of the many reasons people overeat, and a strategy called mindful eating is proposed as a means of navigating this. Mindfulness is an amazing practice, the benefits are well documented in scientific literature. I'm not going to go into mindfulness in this post but I will highlight some healthy eating behaviours through mindful eating: - Ask yourself AM I ACTUALLY HUNGRY? I'm a creature of habit and as soon as 4pm rolls I snack. Though, I'm probably not always hungry at 4pm every day. Step back, take a minute, focus...ask yourself are you hungry, if not... don't eat
- If you don't need to eat but you feel an urge to out of boredom / stress, do something else. Turn that urge into something positive. Go for a walk, or even just watch some youtube for a few minutes. There's some studies showing cravings stop after 20 minutes, so wait out the urge for 20 mins
- Use smaller plates. Don't eat straight from bags/ boxes. Really pay attention to how much you eat
- Try to focus on what you're eating, rather than being distracted by media
- Eat slowly. You can use tricks - smaller spoons, eating with your left hand, chopsticks, etc
There's so many more but I have no room to type! Any Q's let me know :)

Homemade Burma Thoke (Burmese Noodle Salad)
I occasionally wish that there was a little bit more Burmese population here in Canada. I’ve been here for about 7 weeks and the only Burmese I ever met is my friend from high school. People here kept telling me that I’m the first Burmese they ever met and though I’m a tiny bit sad, I’m also proud of this as I get a chance to represent my country. 🇲🇲
