Calling all Vegans - Edit

Any vegan who comes within ten miles of this place should definitely see how wonderful a simple salad can be. The rainbow salad makes this place worth the extra mile. Wonderful people inside this fabulous hole in the wall.

Nice Small Place - Edit

Yep--this is quite a small place--only 4 tables (including a metal table that's outside and a small round table that barely seats 2 inside). Having been to Myanmar, I will say this place is authentic and has quite a lot of vegan and vegetarian dishes--in fact, it has a vegan/vegetarian section in the menu (plus a few appetizers). The owner is quite friendly and understands the vegan diet. Hours are a little limited (closed Sunday and Monday, and only open until 2 PM for lunch most days).

Pros: authentic, numerous vegan items, friendly

Cons: tiny--may be hard to get a table, somewhat limited hours

westcornersville 04 Dec 2015 - Just a quick clarification, they're also open for dinner most days--it's just that they close at 2 for lunch.

Tasty - Edit

This is a little whole in the wall with only four tables. This is Burmese food. You order and pay at the front and the ladies are super friendly and kind of know how to recognize when you're a new patron. They show you the menu and even recommend their best sellers. Surprise surprise, they have vegan specific dishes. They have one salad, one soup, one noodle plate and I believe they have a curry dish as well. They also have fried tofu, samosas and eggrolls. I don't think the eggrolls are vegan though.
I ordered the Coconut Tofu Noodle. It is served with lots of veggies a little bit of tofu and noodles. They recommend you to mix all of the ingredients together once you get your plate. I kind of did and the result was amazing! So much flavor and the vegetables were very fresh! I felt that the portion was reasonable enough and I ended up feeling so full!!!
I did not try any deserts or any drinks because they have limited healthy vegan drinks. They do have water that you can serve yourself for free.
Thinks to consider: Parking is small and limited and they're clearly marked to up to 90 minutes for some of them.
There's a little store next door so, at times, it gets crowded.
They do accept credit cards for a minimum of $10 purchase.
Because the restaurant is so small, they have a sign inside that they limit your dinning time to 1 hour.

Pros: Affordable, Tasty and fresh, Friendly

Cons: Small restaurant, Small menu
