There aren’t many places to get Burmese food in London but that small list is about to get bigger as Lahpet is opening a second site in Covent Garden. Founders Dan Anton and Zaw Mahesh are taking over a unit in the The Yards (that’s the dining and shopping area around St Martin’s Courtyard and Mercer Walk, where the new look branch of Dishoom also lives).
We don’t have any menu details for the new Lahpet but we’d expect signature dishes like the namesake lahpet thohk tea leaf salad, coconut chicken noodles and mohinga (catfish & lemongrass chowder). We’ve been eating at Lahpet since it was a pop-up in London Fields and we’re fans of the Shoreditch restaurant so we reckon the Covent Garden site will be another hit.
