Have I mentioned how much I’m loving all this stuff right now? No? Well I do. Because Burma, despite being ravaged by civil war, and perpetually being in the news for murderous juntas, jailing dissenters, possible nuclear proliferation, etc, apparently has really good food. It’s not difficult to see why solely based on its geography. Let’s see: India to the left, China to the North, Thailand to the right. Yes, that’s 3 of the heaviest heaviest users of spices (and spiciness) in the world. Everyone should get in on this festival; it’s the cheapest (no tip, no tax!), easiest (pointing OK!) way to enjoy the food from this difficult to reach land.

  • i don’t think i’ve ever had or even contemplated burmese food before…is that embarrassing? am i uncultured white trash? i think i’ll definitely check this out…haven’t been to a food festival in too long.

  • OMG I wish I could go!!! I’ve actually never really tried burmese food before, but my dad used to mission in that area and he said it was “dirty but freaking tasty”. Is there a big burmese population in LA though?

  • Damn. I’m going to miss this. It looks really cool.
