The Portland's Ultimate Burmese Food Destinations.
Burma (modernized name - Myanmar) is a Southeast Asian country about the size of Texas, tucked between India and China, is a home to various ethnic tribes and a melting pot of beautiful cultures. When it comes to taste-buds tingling cuisines, Burma has a lot to offer.
We grew up in Burma, in a family of foodies, food connoisseurs and shamelessly self-proclaimed renowned chefs, who love to explore and experiment with recipes. Sharing our culture, and culinary traditions with an outside world has been our lifelong dream every since we left Burma.
When our family fell in love with Pacific Northwest and moved to Oregon, we took the first step toward that dream, and opened a food cart in downtown Portland called "The Taste of Rangoon". We were one of the early comers to the Portland's food cart scene. It was well received but we weren’t ready, so we sold the business, and went on with building our careers in other domains.
With the advent of new technology, and after years of refining our family recipes, we rekindle our passion on bringing Burmese Food experience via Virtual or Ghost Restaurant. Not only we were the first to introduce Burmese Cuisine to Portland, we were also the first virtual restaurant selling food solely online. It was an instant hit. Building upon the popularity of our virtual restaurants, we now serve Portland Metro Area Burmese Food fans via multiple dine-in destinations.
Our Portland original destination on NW 21st Avenue "Top Burmese" serves classic Burmese dishes such as Moh Hinga following our family homestyle cooking. Our Beaverton destination "Top Burmese Bistro Royale" is a tropical oasis, a little mini-vacation for our guests, our passion for nature on full display, an attempt to recreate the beauty of Burma as how we remember it.
Our recent addition to the restaurant family is "Top Burmese Burma Joy" exploring the lesser known side of Burmese Cuisine. The crossroad where Burmese, Chinese and Indian cultures meet.
Our elevated dining destination serving the best of Burmese Cuisine, "Top Burmese Ambassador" is now opened in beautiful Hillsboro historic downtown.
Join us on this exciting culinary journey with us.
Be sure to visit all of our destinations for the full Burmese Cuisine experience.
You will love it. "Kyay-Zu Par!" (Thank you in Burmese language)
