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

By 21 September 2012 33

curry menu

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?

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

Couldn’t they have made the vego one look a bit less Spartan? No wonder I’ve never been!

6 and 4 a close second.

+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.

I’m a 1 + 2 person as well. Eggs in curry are the natural not meat alternative :-)

As far as I’m concerned the 4 is mandatory. The only reason not to order it is if you are a vego but then even that is a bit weak given how great the fish cakes are. I then mix it up between 3, 7 and 8 for the second option.

Agreed..4 is a must have, but then can be added to either 1 or 3. I have tried the egg curry and that is very good as well.

So when ordering do you have to choose two?

Can you just take one? Or three?

Yes, yes you have to choose two otherwise: NO CURRY FOR YOU!!!

I’m amazed that nobody has mentioned 5 + 8, it is after all the one true Burmese curry combo.

5 + 8 for me.

2+9 is a favourite if I’m not feeling like meat, though days when I do 2+6 is good for the extra carbs. Though I have yet to have anything from there that is not tasty :)

The notable absence of a Jim’s Mowing franchisee for a start :)

I am a massive fan of the 4 and the 5 option.

It is a massive load of fish, but frankly I consider it as a nice fish curry to act as a side to the fish cakes.

The fish cakes are heaven and are mandatory to be tried at least once by anyone who claims to be a fan of the Burmese Curry House…
