    Sharing borders with India, China, Laos and Thailand, Burmese cuisine is inevitably influenced by the spices, seasonings, ingredients, and cooking styles of its neighbors.

    My last meal on earth will hopefully include a tea leaf salad, samosa soup, superstar vegetarian noodles and lots of sangria and coconut rice.

    This authentic Burmese eatery is life-changing, according to Fiona. Be sure to order the traditional tea leaf salad, made from fermented tea leaves, and sesame chicken or beef.

    Literally the best eets on Earth. I'd stand their Tea Leaf salad up against a kobe-beef steak any day of the week. Carry-out to avoid the 100 hour wait in the cold.

    I know all the tips highly recommend the Tea leaf salad & Samusa soup. But I preferred the Burmese style lamb curry, coconut rice and a glass (or 3) of the lychee sangria the most.
