Searching for some new restaurants to try, I happened on this little gem.
We have had many different Asian cuisines, but I had no knowledge of Burmese. Apparently there are a number of Burmese restaurants in Queens and Brooklyn but as far as I know, no others in Manhattan. We were very pleased with everything about it.
We began with beef skewers and Burmese fried chicken. For the main course we had the noodles with pork meatballs, and the lamb curry. The flavors were all intricate and delicious. A bottle of Muscadet went well with the food.
This is a very welcome addition to the Chelsea neighborhood.
Basic information about our two bedroom apartment at 63 rue du Poteau, Hall 5, second floor in an elevator building. There are 6 “halls” (doorways to sections of the large building) which are accessed via a lovely garden that one enters after coming through the main door on the street. Because the apartment is so far back from the street one hears no sounds – no sirens. The living room-dining room, which opens on to a balcony on which one can put a small table and chairs, overlooks a garden and a 2 story apartment and a pedestrian path from rue du Poteau that is used by children on their way to and from a nearby Catholic school. A pair of ring-necked pigeons ‘own’ this part of the garden and are fun to watch as they move from branch to branch in a tall tree. The two bedrooms also overlook a garden. The modern kitchen has a small balcony. There is a separate toilet room and the sink and shower are next to it. There is ample closet space in both bedrooms and in the hallway opposite the shower/toilet rooms. As one enters the apartment there is a space where we had a desk, computer, printer etc. There are 2 apartments per floor. Our neighbors are a lovely older couple. There is a resident Guardian, an older woman who has been living/working at the building for 33 years. Rue du Poteau is a market street – all types of small shops: cheese; wine; vegetable (about 8 of them currently), eye glass; 2 book stores – one for kids; many flower shops; Monoprix; Franprix is in our building; Thai takeaway; meat; rotisserie; Italian; and of course Landemaine, a wonderful bakery. Our Metro is Jules Joffrin.
The asking price is: 615 000€, Agency fees included.
