Seng Kuan is one of a handful of Burmese restaurants located near the Three Lamps District. (Be aware that the 7-11 in the picture below is long gone.)
A top option for the budget traveller, only simple soup and noodles dishes are available, with no choice exceeding $30. Extremely small, the restaurant only has 6 tables in total, so you might have to wait outside to get in and then possibly share a table with others once you do.
I’d like to recommend two of their specialty dishes: the coconut chicken noodles in soup ($24) and rice noodles with barbecue pork ($24). Coconut chicken noodles are just a sublime creation to begin with and surely one of the tastiest soups in existence on Earth. Even through I probably prefer the version at Ya Xiang a little more, Seng Kuan serves up a pretty mean bowl too, so don’t miss out.
The rice noodles with barbecue pork is another solid option, put together without much fanfare or fuss, it’s simple straight ahead food that does what it’s supposed to do.
I’m less enthusiastic about the fish soup with flat noodles for $23, though. I needed more seismic tripping on the taste buds to be won over, as it was, there wasn’t enough flavour to make me a fan. All in all, I prefer soup with more sass.
In terms of Burmese restaurants around the Three Lamps District, Ya Xiang is more well known and has attracted the stronger following. Consider Seng Kuan a good backup option should Ya Xiang be closed or full and you don’t have time to wait.
I’ll leave you with the menu from my last visit in late 2017.
