9.‚ Laphet Thohk ‚ Green Tea Salad

It‚s a famed dish, a salad made from pickled tea leaves. Apparently Burma‚  is one of only a few countries in the world that drinks and eats tea leaves. The texture of the salad was unique, a adoring combination of soft, crunchy, crispy, and saucy. I could eat this salad constantly for days.

10. Goat Testicles

Along with a Thali, there‚s an opportunity to order a number of accompanying curries and sides. We got a duo-pari of goat testicles, and though the flavor was quite appetizing, their mushiness was reminiscent of chunks of pure lard.
