Fodor's Expert Review Burma Burma

$$ Central Mumbai Intimate Fodor's Choice

A trip to India can represent an opportunity for travelers to test the ropes at living vegetarian for awhile (veg options constitute literally half of every menu here), but few major restaurants in the city have mastered all the possibilities of vegetarian like the charming Burma Burma. Ankit Gupta, the owner, is half Burmese, and demands authenticity, so short of a separate flight to Myanmar itself, you're not likely to find dishes as skillful as these in many other places. The restaurant serves excellent teas, nanji kaukswe (delicious noodles served in dry coconut powder), and nanpeebya (Burmese bread served with creamy white peas). For dessert, the shway aye, chilled coconut milk served in a glass with sweet bread, is a must try. Like all "pure veg" restaurants, however, no alcohol is served on the premises, so it's a much better place to visit before or after that cold beer you've been craving while walking around in the Bombay heat.
