Burma: Pig Ear Salad

Restaurant: Kyain Kyain null
Address: 3649 Thornton Ave
City: Fremont, California

My family went to a Burmese restaurant for dinner with a family friend. It was actually my parents’ and sister’s first time having Burmese food!

We had pig ear salad as one of our appetizers. This dish had pig ear with fried onion, onion, cucumber, ginger, and parsley. The sauce was also sweet and sour, unlike the spicy/sweet Chinese pig ear dishes.


According to Wikipedia, Burmese pig ear salad (whetnaywet thoke) is Chinese influenced/inspired. The pig ears (or pork offals) are braised in soy sauce and typically served with ginger.
