The new restaurant has been open a month already, and I’m really happy (and relieved) to see not only old customers coming back, but also lots of new faces, and more and more Myanmar diners. I get immense pleasure from seeing people enjoy my food for the first time. We’ve started serving lunch between 11.30pm and 2.30pm (2 course for 18,000 kyats and 3 courses for 21,000 kyats) and so far it has been a great success.

Starting in April, on the first Thursday of every month we are going to be serving fantastic quality locally produced steak provided by Marble and Black. This will be accompanied with some awesome California wines. I’d recommend you book well in advance for this, as it is already gaining a lot of interest.

I’m also really excited about our Easter Sunday lunch and dinner set menu. We’ll be serving a 5-course meal including some incredible New Zealand Lamb for only 40,000 kyats.

My vegetable garden at the restaurant is coming along nicely, I’m already using some of my own grown products in the kitchen, and the tomatoes, long beans and cucumbers should be ready in a couple of weeks. The farm is a place I like to go to have a bit of peace and quiet and think. Though that tranquillity is often interrupted by my ducks, who race across the lake as soon as they hear my voice. Don’t worry, there is no danger of them becoming foi gras, they are a part of our team!

We are all looking forward the Thingyan and the opportunity to have a well-earned break. Our last service will be dinner on Thursday 12 March and we will reopen on the evening of Friday 20 March. I’m going to be heading back to Mon State to spend some time with my family, I’m also going to be pestering my uncle about what vegetables and fruits I’d like him to grow on his farm. This will be a great opportunity for me to take some time out and collect my thoughts after a hectic few months since I won the Chef of the Year award. I’m going to take up some nice bottles of wine and sit in the family farm and start to plan some exciting new dishes for the next 12 months.

I look forward to welcoming you to Orng’s Kitchen soon. Cheers!
