Burmese Food Fair

Another weekend, another excellent food extravaganza in Queens. Thanks to Eat to Blog and Eating in Translation, we spent Sunday at the Burmese Food Fair and Fundraiser, sampling a samosa salad with cabbage in broth (salty and warming), shan noodles with chicken (spicy and tomatoy), a Burmese style pancake (full of whole grains, almonds, and coconut shavings), grass jelly soda (bitter and gelatinous), coconut noodles with chicken (unctuous and rich), cassava cake (like sweeter, softer parmesean cheese), and banana cake (the dark pink color belied the fruity taste). More than $14,000 was raised for Myanmar's orphaned and impoverished.

We're now taking suggestions for this weekend . . .

I've tried the banana cake at another venue before. Not 5 star dessert, but the homemade factor made it really special. What a great cause.
