“If you should happen to be in touch with the sisters, please tell them that they are brilliant.” – guest of the Ambassador
A trip to Build It Green, my parents house, and the salvaging of abandoned police blockades gave me 3 long benches and 2 sizable tables. My bed went into the closet, and massive rearrangements made it possible for 20 of us to do it like Myanmar. It was awesome!
Burmese cuisine is rare in New York. The food tastes like palatable Indian crossed with Thai and Chinese. Though the small population could conceivably sustain it, not one Burmese restaurant remains in the boundaries of New York City. People were quick to get excited at the faintest whisper of possibility for an Ambassador event.
We were blessed to have Sophie be our ambassador for the night. She plated the items, told how everything was made, and showed pictures and stories about Burma. The chefs were her cousins, who had a restaurant in Burma for 40 years, but came to Queens because it sucks there. Here’s a video she sent me:
There’s a lot of food to show. I can say comfortably that everything we had was on an even level of greatness and sincerity.
And scenes from the crowd:
Thank you Sophie and the Sisters 1000x. All the best for you.
