Burma Lane can be found on Little Collins Street. Burma Lane is the new sister restaurant to Red Spice Road and has been open since November 2013. With its stunning chic decor and the fresh menu, I was very much looking forward to the evening.
Burma Lane has a menu broken down into two main sections: small bites and bigger bites. Smaller bites are small bite sized dishes and you would need to order one per person. The bigger bites are more main sized. The main sized dishes can be shared which was what we like to do as you can try more than one dish!
To start we had the potato fritter filled with slow cooked lamb belly. And my god, it tasted like a potato cake you get from Flinders Street station but a more gourmet version. It was so delicious I nearly ordered two more just for me! We also ordered the 19th street crispy pork. This was delicious also, however, I did find the pork a tad dry for my liking although it was very tender. The dish had a bit of a sauce on the plate, but I think if it had a bit more sauce it may have offset the dryness.
For our mains we shared the turmeric coconut chicken curry with whole shallots, parsnip and sweet potato chips. This was a delicious curry with subtle flavour that worked really well. The chicken was perfection and fell apart a the touch of your fork and I adored the shallots and the crunch of the crispy sweet potato chips.
We also ordered the pork ribs which were also so tender! The sauce that the ribs sat on was simply delish.
Overall it was a lovely evening. The food was really tasty and fresh and the friendly staff were awesome. I could not stop staring at the walls and the ceiling as I really did love the decor. I will be looking forward to heading back to Burma Lane to try out more of their delicious menu.
I wore my Tony Bianco Rhapsody heels last night. They are super comfy and the gorgeous nude tone goes with absolutely everything and can be dressed up or down.
