Burmese concept Lahpet
is popping up April 24 and 25 at the St. Claude Avenue Fair Grinds Coffee House
(2221 St. Claude Ave.) The team behind the Burmese concept, which began as a pop-up in 2014, ended its lunch service at Mid-City restaurant Milkfish when that restaurant closed in March.
The two-day event features signature Lahpet dishes including fermented tea leaf salads and curries. The pop-up includes lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, April 24 and dinner from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, April 25.
A portion of the proceeds from the pop-up will benefit One World Family International Peace organization, an sponsorship program for ethnic refugees from Myanmar living in Thailand.
