Irrawaddy Taste of Burma is a family owned and operated restaurant featuring Burmese cuisine from Co-Owner & Chef Banny Hong. Originally from Burma (Myanmar), Banny wanted to create a space to share his family’s most treasured recipes and the time-honored dishes from the region. The cuisine may be influenced by its neighboring nations (China, India, Laos, and Thailand), but its own unique flavor definitely stands on its own. The majority of the dishes are prepared from scratch using raw ingredients and focusing on healthy, light dishes. Always great for sharing amongst family and friends.
