Root review: ‘Wa food that will excite even the most seasoned gastronome’
By Edmond Sailland - February 14, 2018

Bok Choy.
Each time I go to dine at Root I tend to stagger out, often hours later, feeling a little bewildered, wondering how much of what happened inside the restaurant was real. Root is a multisensory experience—the food is punchy, the cocktails are strong, the décor is arresting, and the atmosphere is lively. Perhaps this is of little surprise as Root specializes in in the cuisine of Wa—an ethnic group who control a territory the size of Belgium in Myanmar’s East, known for their wildness.

Located on the lower block of Yangon’s Bo Myat Htun, it’s a prime location to begin a night before heading off to Beat Bar, Seventh Joint, or Jazz in Time. The décor is fabulous: Tables cleaved out of large pieces of tree, brightly-colored fabric, and walls adorned with pieces of animal and musical instruments. It’s a cavernous space, and with large tables and reasonably-priced drinks it can get a little raucous.

Mashed potatoes.
The cocktails were some of the best I have tasted in Yangon. The Farmer’s Tea had a fantastic bitterness and tea flavor while the Bliss was packed with real strawberry and had a nice a tang of Thai Basil.

The food will excite even the most seasoned gastronome. The smoked beef moik (4,500 kyats) is Wa’s answer to risotto. A wet rice dish with a fantastic earthy meaty flavor. The mashed potato (4,000 kyats) is far more flavorsome than the West’s equivalent—with liberal amounts of garlic, chili, and herbs.

Chicken wings.
The salads (2,000 kyats) were also winners. In the green bean salad, sesame and ginger, complimented the crisp and fresh green beans while the egg plant salad had a wonderful slippery smokiness. The highlight of the night for me was the grilled pork neck (6,500 kyats for a large portion); it was beautifully spiced with a tart charred flavor, with the meat left tremendously juicy and tender. The only criticism I have is that the chicken wings were nothing to write home about. Nor was the bok choy, and at 4,000 kyats it was nowhere near a good value as the salads.

All in all, however, I estimate an evening of sumptuous food and cocktails at Root is likely to come in at quite a bit less than your average meal in a restaurant of that quality. It’s fulsome, flavor-packed, and just a little bit frenetic. Perhaps the flavor combinations are not for everyone, but for me, its one of the best places for local food in the city.

Address: Bo Myat Htun Street | Bo Myat Tun Tower, Yangon (Rangoon) 11062, Myanmar

Hours: 11am-11pm

I’m Charles Schnake and This Is How I Mesh | Another Fine Mesh
I think that a big problem I see being wrestled with right now is the scalability of CFD, and by that I don’t just mean the ability of the solvers to run efficiently on many nodes/cores. How can we (engineering software vendors) enable CFD engineers to run more simulations, evaluate more designs, and gain more insight faster?

I’m a relatively laidback person who prefers a comfortable casual atmosphere, so I really enjoy a hole-in-the-wall joint serving up street & comfort foods. That said, if we’re talking bucket-list type establishments I would choose a three Michelin star establishment like Alinea (Chicago), Jiro (Tokyo), or Meadowood (Napa). The formality of it all would probably make me a little uncomfortable at first, but I imagine that the quality of the food & service would eradicate that in short order and leave me with an unforgettable experience.

How to Find the Next Great Restaurant Neighborhood
There are a lot of pros to opening a restaurant in a yet-to-be-established neighborhood, especially on the financial side. Since the Samsons were the first to sign in the development, to protect themselves, they asked for an occupancy clause in the lease. That way if the place didn’t fill out by a certain amount of time, they could get out of it. They asked for rent abatements, which included free rent during the build out. That was particularly helpful, says Dina.

“We learned from Sotto that when you have that inexpensive rent, it gives you time to build clientele,” she added. “You can get to know your neighborhood and your customers. Once you get the locals support, they’ll keep coming back. There are a lot of people living and working downtown, and we’ve nurtured those relationships.”
