Myanmar’s decor is barebones; the service is slow; the portions are small; and the food is delicious. This is home-cooked Burmese: curries prepared with lots of garlic, turmeric and oil, chili fish, mango salads and chicken swimming in rich gravies.
Try the mohingar, the Burmese take on Southeast Asian noodle soup: thin noodles, plump bits of fish and a garlicky, in-depth complexity that will have you smiling into the bottom of your soon-to-be-empty bowl. For an ethnic eating experience, it doesn’t get much more authentic. It’s located a bit west of Falls Church on Lee Hwy.
