Lahpet has quickly won the capital over with its modern style of Burmese cuisine and now the restaurant has shut its doors in London Fields and is moving down to Shoreditch, opposite Rich Mix cinema.
With what started as a market stall, Lahpet quickly gained traction by tapping into an Asian cuisine without much representation in London. Using ingredients from Myanmar, traditional and modern cooking methods, and recipes handed down to Burmese chef Zaw, the restaurant creates delicious curries and fish dishes. The menu features plates such as fritters, tea leaf salads, coconut noodles and king prawn curry.
