Week beginning April 20th - Bumese menu

Still sticking with southeast asian region we head north of Thailand to Burma. Though I have never been to Myanmar it represents a special relationship and friendship I share with 2 of Kaffeine's staff. Khan and Win are both from Burma, I've worked with Khan for the last 4 and half years at GTS and Win for almost 2 years. If you read these blogs regularly you'll know Khan has taken charge of GTS kitchen and I poached Win for ECS. 

This weeks menu at Eastcastle street is dedicated to them and their culture, starting with a salad made with pickled tea leafs called Laphet Thoh. This is perhaps Burma most famous dish mixing together pickled green tea with chickpeas, peanuts, tomato and chilli. 

There is also a salad made with Udon noodles mixed with a spiced polenta sauce, crispy onions and pickled onions. It's a matter of opinion but this is also considered Burma's most famous fish. 

This weeks tart are fishcakes made with tofu, the fish base is a mix of salmon and cod win with smoked tofu and a ginger curry. Then fried until golden, Burma's equivalent to fish and chips.

Back up at the original Kaffeine Khan is working her fusion of Asian, Mediterranean and European magic. With chicken marinated in molasses, bulghur wheat, red pepper, courgette, pomegranates seeds and parsley salad. There is also a pomelo salad with mango, shallots, pickled ginger, chilli, herbs, peanuts,  and black sesame seeds. Last of the trios roasted beetroot, pickled radish, ricotta and walnuts, classic British fair.
