My Good Eats Review: TOGETHER Burmese Restaurant, Brooklyn, NY

TOGETHER Burmese Restaurant – Brooklyn, NY

June 2017

Rating: 1 (not edible) to 5 (food heaven!): A Solid 5

 

I am in love with that “Mohinga”… savory, sour, crunchy goodness – just amazingly good!

Together Restaurant is nestled on a quiet block but busy street (it’s on a semi-main road with lots of traffic & delivery trucks) – however the block itself is a mix of grocery, bodega, hardware and some odd stores. With its loud red curtain blocking the interior view – passerby or potential patrons would miss it in a blink of an eye.  Although the signage of its namesake is on the top – I’ve witnessed first hand many curious ‘potential’ patrons just glanced & walked by.

Warning:  Do Not Be Turned Off By the Decor… it’s just a very homely place.  The restaurant looks a little dated, cozy space, with “American” news on one TV and cheesy karaoke music video on the other (very cute).

The staff is very nice, very sweet! The waitress/cook/server spoke little English but she understood the universal language of “pointing to the menu”.

Now the food – everything was so delicious! Something about Southeast Asian – love love love all the spices, cilantro, peanuts, lime, vermicelli, chili, fish sauce, simplicity at its best!

Mohinga “fish soup w/ rice noodle” (every Yelpers raved about it!) – GET IT! It was awesome! I cannot wait to go back for another round!

Tea Leaf salad, while it’s a little salty, it has great texture and will go well with your curry entree. Dried tea leaf with peanuts, lima bean, cabbage, onion (seasonal)

Curry Chicken w/ Paratha – which is served with a roti like bread. Yum!!!

Curry Pork Belly – spicy – very tender and not very spicy, goes well with the rice and cucumber that comes with.

Coconut Jelly, this is as good as I remembered it… most Asian household have had made this one time… it’s basically coconut milk with gelatin (like jello!)

Shwe Yin Aye – now this ones’ crazy – it’s a bowl consists of salted bread, ice cubes, coconut jelly, glutinous rice, sago in coconut milk.  My first spoonful was salty & then sweet, my tastebuds were confused. Then I tried again – it’s not bad.  I like my desserts sweet but this one’s a must try for you 1st timers!  Total bill for all this food – $45 (tip & tax) – totally worth it.

Bottom line – GO. NOW. EAT. HERE.
