What’s new Ahmedabad?
Mumbai boy Ankit Gupta, inspired by the food prepared by his Burmese mother, started a Burmese restaurant along with his childhood friend, Chirag Chhajer, in the city in 2014. They called it Burma Burma, and it now has branches across several cities in India. Last month they opened in Ahmedabad with a menu featuring Samosa soup, street style Burmese falooda, the beloved khowsuey, a range of zero proof cocktails, bubble teas and artisanal ice creams made in-house that include flavours like Dark Chocolate and Olive, Avocado and Honey, Caramelized Chocolate and Cheese Honeycomb and more.
