Burmese mixed noodle salad (khauk swe thoke)
Bleh, I’ve been meaning to update this but kept forgetting, every single time I logged onto Tumblr, until now.
My mom dropped off Burmese mixed noodle salad (khauk swe thoke) over on Saturday, so I’ve been happily eating this until today, when I ran out.
As with most Burmese food, this is a hearty meal. The dish is slightly sweet and salty, crunchy (the cabbage) and refreshing (cucumbers). Maybe if I ever feel inclined to cook, I’ll try making it. Maybe.
Long wheat noodles mixed in with sliced cucumbers, fried fish paste, cabbage, cilantro, dried chili, mixed with peanut oil, garlic and fish sauce.
I’ve decided that I will take macro, artsy-fartsy shots when I take pictures of food so be prepared.
