Tea Leaf Salad - SF Dish of the Month (Nov 2012)

what Melanie said is true. you put lime and wrapped the tea leaf air tight in another type of leaf and wrapped it with twine and place it back in the water to prolong the freshness of the leaf. not every house hold have refrigerator in their home before may be now.

Tea Leaf Salad - SF Dish of the Month (Nov 2012)

we ate tea leaf as after dinner appetizer with hot tea. never as salad. tea leaf are usually made from soft tender sprout of the tea plant without leaf. it is like "khana peena" like a paste. with today high demand, they started adding leaf for economic reason. sprouts are collected and wrapped in leaves and placed in cold running stream for months for fermentation. this is how the specially made tea leaf container, made from woven bamboo / lacquer. you mixed as you eat with your finger. we ate with fried garlic, sesame seed and sesame oil. some will add beans and dry shrimp.

Burmese Food in union city (weekend only)

haven't try the food yet. went over to get "Quee pyant" sweet and salted one. a lot of order from the burmese community in Los Angeles. he was woorking over time to fill order especially duck pastries/ chicken pastries. the new owner had been there for one year. he learned from the previous owner, who retired after 20 year. i have to go back again for the pastries. it won't taste as good as back home, for they used a lot of lard to make pastries there.
