WHY A longtime leader of Burmese cuisine in Los Angeles.
WHAT Golden Triangle has for decades been an uptown Whittier stalwart, its Burmese food reason enough to trek to Greenleaf Avenue. And even this long into its existence, enough can’t be said of the spritely ginger salad, earthy tea leaf salad, goat curry with coconut rice and panthe kauekswe, a comforting dish of soft, curried noodles. Plus, there’s durian ice cream.
WHO Uptown neighbors, Whittier College kids and Burmese traditionalists.
