Top Burmese restaurant Lahpet is opening in Covent Garden

Top Burmese restaurant Laphet is opening in Covent Garden

They started life as a stall on Maltby Street before becoming a popular Shoreditch restaurant - and now Lahpet are heading to the centre of town for their biggest venture yet. 

They're coming to The Yards, a new area carved out in Covent Garden, which the huge Dishoom there is now part of (it backs onto the new space).

As in Shoreditch, founders Dan Anton and head chef Zaw Mahesh will be bringing their own take on Burmese regional specialities and staple dishes. That includes the Lahpet Thohk pickled tea leaf salad (pickled tea, double-fried beans, cabbage, tomato, chilli, dried shrimp, sesame seeds, garlic oil, peanuts) and Mohinga (Catfish and lemongrass chowder) and Coconut Noodles with Chicken.

As before, they'll have cocktails alongside (expect the Lahpet Margarita to make an appearance). We'll have full details of what else is being planned closer to the opening.  

If you can't wait until then, you can head to their Bethnal Green Road restaurant, which reopens for terrace dining this week (6 May).
