Want to try some authentic Burmese specialities? Run by the Thai Heaven restaurant chain, they are working to create a new style of eating which includes light Burmese meals and some other delicious entrees. Burma Express has a noticeable sign, located in the SiPing shopping district. The seats are set around the U-shaped bar. Though the sign suggests that this is like other small-scale shops, you can sense the diligence of the owner in the decorations and atmosphere they've created. There are currently 10 entrees priced between NT$65 and NT$95, so it's truly affordable. --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee

A. Thick Rice Noodle Stirred with Chicken Sauce (NT$70) is made of tomatoes, chicken, chick pea powder onion slices and thick rice noodles. Momo chacha (NT$40) is a signature, sweet beverage.

B. Recommended is the Rice Vermicelli with Fish Soup (NT$70), made with slippery vermicelli and bean crackers which the Burmese eat as crispy snacks (when ordering to go, ask them to leave out the bean crackers first). This dish goes down quickly with a side order of Papaya Salad (NT$30) or the Thousand-year-old Egg & Tomato Salad (NT$30), which are good choices for summer.
