Inle Myanmar Restaurant, Peninsular Plaza

This is a rare venture for me if you've noticed. I haven't had so much experience nor opportunity with Burmese food with the exception of those cooked by a friend and an experience with some fried rodent from a helper once. The latter is another story for another space and time. We've seen Inle (#B1-07A Peninsula Plaza, 111 North Bridge Rd, tel : +65 6333 5438) for ages and have never thought to try. Until today.

Guess what?  It's not too bad. I could pick on little things like preferring a stronger flavour and more ingredients for the lephet rice but I still liked it enough to finish it happily along with the pickled tea soup with coriander that had been boiled to death. True story. Maybe a bit more fish sauce for delicious saltiness would be nice.

Quite liked their ohn no khao swe (spelling varies and it's a Burmese curry chicken noodle for simplicity) too. The broth has a richness that bears some similarity with our local laksa or the Thai khao soi. Somewhat lemak, a little tangy and more sliced red onions would have made it better. This was different from the home made one I had before though so I guess there are variations to how they're cooked.
