There is only one Burmese restaurant that I know of in Philadelphia, owned by three women who came to Philadelphia from Burma years ago. Kriti and I went a few months ago with our kitchen staff and had a great time sitting and talking about their country and all the delicious food. We loved everything, specifically the delicious papaya salad. As soon as I ate it I wanted to figure out how to make it for myself. I've since been lucky enough to learn a version and so I wanted to share the recipe and also quickly share about a group of people who have become very special to me.
