Lahpet: Burmese Cuisine

Have you ever tried Burmese cuisine? If not, you are in luck!

Lahpet is one of London’s only Burmese restaurants… yes, you heard that right, Burmese! They are serving London’s foodies with authentic regional specialties with a hint of contemporary fusion. The wonderful owner and head chef, Dan and Zaw, both from Burmese heritage, launched their unique concept in Old Spitalfields Market a few years back before opening a permanent site in Shoreditch.

Now their spot is one of the most famous Burmese restaurant in London, with a menu including Coconut Chicken Noodles, Aubergine Curry and their signature Tea Leaf Salad. Sounds delicious right? Laphet have been featured in some of London’s top publications including The Evening Standard, Foodism, and TimeOut London

What Lahpet Has To Say About GoKart

Laphet founders, Dan and Zaw joined the GoKart family in April 2018, being one of the first restaurants to use our platform to order a whole range of supplies, including meat supplies, fruit and veg supplies, packaging and ambient. We asked Laphet to describe their GoKart experience and how we have helped them run their successful business…here’s what they had to say:

“The thing that always stood out for me with GoKart is the support network. No matter the issue, we always have someone at GoKart helping us every step of the way. We can’t get enough of GoKart!”

“We have gotten all of our friends in the industry to use it because it has helped us more than they can imagine. All your suppliers, all your ingredients all in one easy place – it’s a restaurateur’s dream!”

Lahpet’s Journey

Since launching in Hackney in 2017, Laphet has become a permanent Shoreditch attraction for Burmese cuisine seeking customers. A great fit for London’s multicultural crowd looking to explore cuisines from all over the world. 

Their signature speciality – the Tea Leaf Salad, which incorporates umami-packed pickled tea leaves into a unique texture-laden salad, has been named no.26 in Time Out’s 2017 ‘Top 100 Dishes in London’. 

Other popular dishes on the Lahpet menu include:

  • Mandalay Fritters made of kidney beans and ginger
  • Balachaung Dumplings with shrimp, garlic and peanut oil
  • Kachin beef with sichuan pepper, shalap leaves and mint
