Café Sule at Sule Shangri-La has gone local in its revamped “Mad for Seafood” buffet.
The all-day dining venue embraces Myanmar seafood—particularly Rakhine fare—on Saturdays and continues its popular international seafood buffet on Thursdays.
At the buffet’s ‘Rakhine Station’ brave customers can embark on a fiery and flavorful gastronomic adventure, choosing from the range of fish, prawns, cuttlefish, and even snails that the chef can spice to the desired level.
Seafood is a stable of the coastal Rakhine diet, and Café Sule covers all the bases: crab, octopus, lobster, squid, clams and more, soaked in spicy-sour broths that use coriander, lemongrass, chillies and lemon juice.
Typically less oily than Burmese cuisine, Rakhine dishes include Mont-Ti, a soup or salad with fish slices, accompanied by rice noodles and seafood that packs a punch.
Also available are papaya salad, anchovy salad, white fungus salad, and a long list of non-seafood dishes such as pork skewers, Chinese steamed buns, and chicken stew.
Other dishes worth a try include Ngar Ni Tuu Thoke (dried small fish salad), Rakhine Mont-Ti Ngar Phae Toke (rice noodle salad with fish cake), Gone Thauk Sann (hot and sour mussel stew) and Pinlalsar Mar Lar Shan Kaw (stir-fried spicy seafood and vegetables), among others
The local-style “Mad for Seafood” Night will be offered on Saturday nights and the traditional international “Mad for Seafood” Night will be offered on Thursday nights, both from 6-10 pm. The two nights are priced at US$36 nett per person. Golden Circle guests will earn points while GEMs cardholders will enjoy 20 per cent off.
