Amay's House

Amay's House Burmese and Asian Cuisine Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Back to Amay's House after a very long time (2015!) and good to see this little place is still around and offering good value even with the expected price increases over time.

Roti Prata ($3) one piece side order
  • Crispy on the outside, very moist and tender on the inside, and oily to achieve this result but that's expected.
  • Overall texture and taste is good, dough is pretty thin, and easy to hand-tear.
  • This came flat from the pan and not hand-crushed into a tender mass, which is an alternate way it is served.
  • As a side order it does NOT come with anything for dipping.

Prata Served with Curry Chicken ($5.50 for 1 piece, $8.50 for 2 pieces)
  • Prata on the side. I had this to go and they crushed the prata, possibly to prevent the crust from cooling and hardening into a chewy slab. This way it was still fairly easy to hand-tear for dipping into the curry.
  • It's chicken curry, not curried chicken pieces. So you do get chunks of chicken meat as well as some curry sauce.
  • Not hot-spicy. Rather sweet curry sauce that was quite thick and had a good portion of oil.
Keema Prata ($6) prata stuffed with a choice of ground chicken or lamb; onions, traditional spices
  • Looks like one prata spread with the meat portion of their curry, and cut into two pieces.
  • I asked for chicken and was at first thrown off by their use of ground chicken.
  • Curry is not hot-spicy and actually looks a bit skimpy. If you're going for chicken I would recommend instead the "Prata Served with Curry Chicken"
  • Token salad with sour vinaigrette, like a refreshing coleslaw.

Myanmar Tea Leaf Salad ($8) Fermented tea leaves, tomato, cabbage, assorted beans and nuts
  • Interesting a quite refreshing-tasting cold salad. Mild sourness from the tea leaves, fun crunch from the nuts. Overall a very tasty salad.

Fish Noodle Soup ($8.50)
  • Rice noodles, catfish broth, lemongrass, fresh cilantro, fried garlic, fried split chana dal (yellow lentils)
  • Interesting fried globs of lentils but you have to pay attention to them or you might just miss it eating it with everything else.
  • NO fish meat! Just the broth is used.
  • A very generous portion of noodle, so this can be a fairly filling meal for under $10.
  • NOT very "fishy" tasting at all. But also not a lot of taste character either, as a result. Pretty tame. Maybe pass on this and get something more interesting.

A small pot of chili flake/paste is available as condiment. Be VERY careful. This stuff is powerful.

Fairly busy on a Saturday evening but still no problem walking in for a table.
