Sounded like a home number.

They sell some dishes of burmese food and you can also buy those pickled tea leaves there .. but you need to buy passport ... sort of like CNE .. there are some shows too.. not just burmese, other cultures too.. kids under 12 are free to get in..<br /> here is the link <br /> http://www.carabram.org<br />or www.mcab.caAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7006910035268503192.post-4525898726851217372012-04-07T23:21:59.515-04:002012-04-07T23:21:59.515-04:00My only other experience with Burmese food was Bur...My only other experience with Burmese food was Burma Super in San Francisco, which was one of my favourite food experiences — pretty colours, spicy, and a non-pretentious/laid back atmosphere (I&#39;ll link a picture of one of the dishes I had). <br /><br />ttps://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/41251_10150237196935527_549515526_14351186_3079801_n.jpg<br /><br />While the man working at Motherhome when I went there was very friendly, I must admit I was rather disappointed with my experience. To me it seemed just like mediocre, western Chinese food. <br /><br />I am, though, excited about the possibilities of ordering items not on their menu! How does that process work out — do you need to order ahead of time, and are the items listed anywhere?<br /><br />Btw, really happy to have found this blog! Darcy from Food Forwards mentioned it to me tonight and I was very excited to hear about this combination of Spicy + ethnic foods + Toronto :)<br /><br />/JasonJasonhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04579449194486206473noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7006910035268503192.post-70890163275112635442011-12-20T14:42:31.902-05:002011-12-20T14:42:31.902-05:00Interesting - I did not know that Toronto had a Bu...Interesting - I did not know that Toronto had a Burmese restaurant, and I had searched but never heard of this one. Rangoon in Philadelphia is an old favourite of mine - and quite well known and popular there. I will have to see if this compares. And on the split pea issue, one of the dishes at Rangoon was always served with dried yellow split peas as a crunchy garnish.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7006910035268503192.post-24546099459591920192011-08-11T00:06:27.467-04:002011-08-11T00:06:27.467-04:00Hi Gilbert, I&#39;ve got their take-out menu here...Hi Gilbert,<br /><br />I&#39;ve got their take-out menu here. They describe their Burmese curries as made of tomatoes, onion, tamarind sauce, malasa, lemon grass, coriander and chili. No mention of split peas, but you should ask them about it. Funny, I was just in San Fran and I noticed a Burmese place there. <br /><br />cheers, SarahSpice City Torontohttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18064491744195858218noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7006910035268503192.post-37929160166551386332011-08-10T23:47:44.517-04:002011-08-10T23:47:44.517-04:00Hey Sarah.

I happened upon Pagan restaurant completely by chance right outside Lincoln Park after visiting the Legion of Honor museum. I ordered a noodle dish and was pleasantly surprised when the server came and tossed the curry sauce right at the table. I also remember how they used ground dried split pea powder as a thickener. <br /><br />Do you recall seeing anything like this on Motherhome&#39;s a la carte menu?Gilbertnoreply@blogger.com
