When I travel, I would like to try out the various cuisines that are available there, for example, Ethiopian when I went to San Francisco or Mexican Gumbo in Los Angeles or Thai restaurant Bai Tong in Bellevue or Mock meat in Hong Kong.

Madras, where I live, is conservative in that sense, the only Ethiopian restaurant in Chennai “Abyssinian” closed a few years back, to turn into a dog-friendly eatery!

Today, while in Bangalore, my nephew invited me for dinner to a Burmese restaurant and I readily agreed. The restaurant was called Burma, Burma and was purely vegetarian (I am fine as long my plate has only vegetarian items) – the ambience was good, the service was friendly and efficient, food tasted yummy, and, lastly the price was NOT cheap, but worth for an occasion.

It was interesting to watch the brewing of tea in their special apparatus from Japan - Signature BB blend is made with hand picked premium white tea, the bursts of flavors of peaches and oranges.
