Ethnic Eats: Myanmar (Postponed)

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share with Email

Since 2011, the southside of Indianapolis has grown to be home to over 20,000 refugees and second wave immigrants from Myanmar comprising of all eight ethnicities and their languages – Chin, Kachin, Karenni (Kayer), Karen, Mon, Arakan (Rakhaine) and Bama (Burman). Like many other types of foods, Burmese food is the creation of many regional dishes and each ethnicty has their own special dishes and styles of cooking. A few unifying threads are apparent; sour and savory flavors, many accompaniments, strong pungent flavors, and an abundant use of creative salads.

For this Ethnic Eats, we will gather at the Burmese American Community Institute (BACI) for a catered sampling of a variety of traditional Burmese foods eaten at breakfast, lunch and dinner. We’ll learn from BACI leaders about the history and growth of the southside community, culture and food customs.

Menu: Breakfast Noodle Salad, Tea Leaf Salad, Kimu Special Fried Rice with Seafood, Samusa, Goat Curry with Rice, and Hot Tea.

Menu is subject to change. Food provided by Kimu Restaurant. Allergy or food preference concerns please contact Lauren at

Registration closes Tuesday, April 14 at noon.
