Pea parathas, soft spring rolls, and some eye-popping “Burmese frozen delights” are now being sold on Saturdays at a variety of locations through Manhattan under the nom de pop-up Burmese Bites. The proprietors of the new stand, which Eating in Translation says is an extension of operations at the Myanmar Baptist Church fun fair, seek to rectify a shortage of Burmese food in the “street food industry.” The city has few full-fledged Burmese restaurants anyhow, another reason why the debut is pretty exciting.
