EVENT MUST KNOWS:
Family-Style Dining: Dining for this event has been designated as Family-Style. The food bill will be split evenly between all attendees. Attendees will be responsible for paying for their own beverages. Please note that flexibility is an important part of family-style dining, and if you want to take a chance on attending, you have to be amenable to what the group/AO will order. You don't have to eat everything that is ordered, but everyone pays equally, whether you eat everything or not. Why this policy? The goal for family-style dining is to allow for the entire group to sample as wide a variety of dishes as possible. If one or more attendees choose to order on their own, that limits the group's choices, which defeats the purpose of what Family-Style Dining is all about. In addition, most of the dishes we order will be moderately to very spicy. If this definition of Family-Style Dining doesn't feel comfortable, this may not be the right type of event for you.

I've wanting to host a Burmese dinner for a while now but haven't because my lack of familiarity with this cuisine. Then, the announcement of Daw Yee Myannmar Cafe came, and with it's modernized variations of traditional Burmese comfort food that won't be too exotic for most people.
Some of the dishes we may order to share include (at 2x):
- Tea Leaf Salad
- Tofu Salad
- Ohnoh Noodles
- Fish Cake Curry
- Vegetable Curry
"Daw Yee is the effort of Delyn Chow, a second-generation Burmese chef/restaurant operator and a native of Monterey Park. Daw Yee, named after Chow's mother, increases the number of Burmese restaurants in Monterey Park by 100%, and the number of Burmese restaurants in L.A. county by 33%. The restaurant sits at the site of a former Cantonese bakery and also carries a small selection of Burmese food ingredients. Look for kima platha, ohnoh khao soi, lamb curry, and farluda (rose flavor milk dessert) on the menu."
