Book for Burmese Night at The Wild Garlic

The Wild Garlic (logo)


People have always told me I can cook. Even if they've laughed at the fact that I can't swim, drive or ride a bike.

I mean, look at my graduation yearbook entry, written almost a decade ago (maybe ignore the bit about Ann Widdecombe):

Meemalee's Graduation Yearbook Entry


I've dabbled in most cuisines, but unsurprisingly the one that is closest to my heart is Burmese food (been trying to write a Burmese cookbook for years, remember?).

Of course, no-one's ever had the chance to try my cooking except close friends and family.

Until now.

Because for one night only, I'm taking over The Wild Garlic, the highly acclaimed Dorset restaurant of Chef Patron Mat Follas, winner of MasterChef 2009 and all-round good guy who has kindly decided to take a chance on me.

Friday 1st October is the date for my pop-up Burmese restaurant - the menu is yet to be finalised, but it will be authentic Burmese cuisine. It may or may not feature century eggs.

Book now on 01308 861 446.

Hope to see some of you there so you can judge for yourself ...

  5. Well done, MiMi. I'd love to have been there, but I can't take that day off and I'd need to to be able to get there. :-(

    Never mind, enjoy it as much as you can and I look forward to the feedback (so to speak!)

    It's going to be THE pop up of the year!

    Good luck!
