Have You Tried the Shweji Cake at Bandoola Bowl?

If you’re looking to try a different kind of menu, head to Bandoola Bowl, a new Asian-fusion spot on Wisconsin Avenue boasting dishes from Burma, Vietnam, and Thailand. This family-owned and -operated establishment showcases the culture and roots of the owners, who are three generations of Burmese natives who are bringing the flavors they love to our city. 

Salads are the star of the show in Burma, so that is what the menu consists of, almost entirely, ensuring likely your healthiest meal of the day chock full of nutrients and fresh ingredients. Those who have become regulars highly recommend the roasted pork salad. The dish combines juicy roasted pork with lettuce, onions, tomato, red bell pepper, chopped cilantro, fresh lime juice, crispy garlic and fried shallots topped with their sweet soya sauce. Many like to customize with a soft-boiled egg or extra veggies. There are also extensive options for vegetarians with green bean salad, chickpea salad, and tofu salad, all infused with Asian flair and spices. 

End your meal with their sweet shweji cake for a true taste of what Burma has to offer.
