Burned out on this heatwave? Join the fucking party, pal. Trust me when I say it’s cooler down here, six feet under.
The restaurant is a pop-up, open on Wednesdays, inside the wine bar Bodega Wine Bar with Burmese comfort food:
These noodles can take the form of stir-fries, soups, or cold summer salads, with some dishes toggling between those modalities. Individual recipes vary from week to week, so that one Wednesday if you order beef shan noodle —attributed to a state in eastern Myanmar bordering China— it may be a heap of slippery and pungently oily rice linguine shot with beef nuggets, shredded omelet, crunchy peanuts, and cilantro, tasting powerfully of fish sauce and secondarily of tomato.
