So what is the best menu combo from the Burmese Curry Place

By johnboy - 21 September 2012 33

Enough of Rail, Rates and Rubbish. A more pressing issue is at hand.

Any sane, intelligent, attractive person knows that the Burmese Curry Place’s 7+4 is the very epitome of culinary perfection.

And yet they persist if selling another 7 menu options. So some mad fools are obviously buying them.

What’s your Burmese combo and why?

What’s Your opinion?

I never do the combos unless there is a decent veggie option. The lunch combo is a take away version of the buffet and is well suited mostly to men who seem comfortable with having salad, stew, curry, rice, cold pasta, potatoes and dessert on one plate.

My favorite from the BCP is the chicken and potato and the vegetarian dish.

Egg curry and beef potato is my favorite combo. The big, whole eggs, hearty potatos, and melt-in-your mouth beef does it for me.

Oh man, damn, I care about this. woah. Hold on. *i gotta breath*

When it first opened, I heard from an * inside source* that the potato options were just to assuage the australians who couldn’t handle the authentic burma styles.

So yeah. I’m bringing the pretention:

If I see your order 1 or 6, I will either judge you as being a ignorant, or salt-of-the-earth.

1 + 2.

Call me ignorant, but we have friends (admittedly, Burmese but not Burman) who put us on to that combo. 2 + 4 is a very close second; anything else is madness.

Burmese cooking definitely includes potato. Or perhaps yam. However, it’s a common addition to bulk up a dish for westerners, who usually order 1 dish. Burmese eating typically involves a bunch of small dishes rather than 1 big one.

Of course, YMMV, especially as Burmese != Shan/Karen/Chin/Kachin/etc

+1. The curried bum-nuts are freakin awesome. Incidentally, egg dishes are very popular in India too. Nothing like the dirty ‘curried egg’ we get on sangers over here in Oz.

It’s a vegetable dish, you are a vego….isn’t that enough? Of course I am being facetious, I know that Vegos need sesame seeds or something exotic to spice it up on the top.

But really, it’s one of the best veggie dishes I’ve had as take away. And if I remember, it’s also got potato in it.

Love curried egg dishes and make one at home a fair bit, albeit Indian, but have never tried this one.

Thanks for that. Will give it a whirl next time I deserve lunch.

2 + 5 = perfect lunch.
2 cause egg curry gives me flashbacks to a great Pakistani place from my youth, and 5, well cause you can’t go past a fish curry.
