Burma Lane situated at Little Collins St and shares the same owners as Red Spice Road and Meat, Fish & Wine. Burma Lane just like it's name focus on traditional and modern Burmese flavours with South Eastern influence.

I was given a voucher by Apple & Pears Group to dine in at one of their restaurant. Since I have always gone to Red Spice Road, I decided to try something new. The restaurant has a high ceilings with two level of dining space, dark wall, dim lighting and various pieces of artworks with beautiful mural of Aung San Suu Kyi on one part of the wall.

Burmese Bao - steamed buns filled with crispy fish, green mango salad, tumeric mayo ($14). Bao is a popular menu these days and this bao has a freshness in it as well as acidity with complete crispy and soft texture.

Fish, Sticky Rice, Coriander Cakes - cucumber, tamarind dipping sauce ($15). The fish cakes was denser but has a tangy enjoyable flavour in it.

Beef Cheek Curry w/ eggplant pickle and onion fritter ($32). The beef was tender with strong curry and soy flavour, best to eat with their Burmese Fried Rice ($6) or white rice for more balancing flavour.

Burma Lane is a nice introduction into Burmese fusion, a cuisine that is rare in Melbourne. All of their dish contain punching flavour that is unique. The service was friendly yet a bit slow in preparing the food even though on Tuesday night and the restaurant was so quiet. They do have various deal for different nights which are quite interesting. Overall, it's a nice new experience.
