Hello MYANMOREans
Our boys the Myanmar Fighting Cocks Australian Football Club
compete against Cambodia Eagles at the Star City grounds this
weekend. This is going to be a good game, and so is the weather.
Come out and show them some love.
It seems only yesterday that French Love Friday started their first
open-air party at IFB. Now into their 10th edition, its not just another
excuse to be outdoors, but also a visual+ audio+ music mish-mash
night. If you wear something neon this time, you’ll sure get the attention!
For those who look forward to Thingyan, this celebration comes
early with loads of evening shenanigans and fun at Karaweik Palace
Royal Culture Show from March 20th to April 16th.
Don’t curb your enthusiasm!

review
the roof - a sweet science
BY ZARA DANG
WHAT IT IS
The Roof brings the craft of molecular mixology to Yangon. According to their founder, these cocktails are not just mixed beverages,
but a form of edible art that incorporates new textures not commonly found in beverages, such as foam, smoke, bubbles, caviar,
and mist. These special techniques take a long time to prepare, so
they are made in small batches and only a limited number of each
are available per day.
ATMOSPHERE
The large terrace has an industrial-loft feeling with a metal structure
and sleek black furniture. The decor paired with their upbeat club
music makes The Roof feel like a happening nighttime spot. Most
of the terrace is covered, so it will be a nice outdoor venue, even
when rainy season starts.
RECOMMENDATION
The cocktails are certainly the highlight at The Roof. We started
with the refreshing Roof Collins Fizz. This gin-based drink maintains
the bubbly citrus concept of its namesake, but also incorporates a
delightful ginger zing topped with a strawberry “caviar”.
If you’re lucky enough to arrive before they sell out, I recommend
trying the bubble shooters. Served in a tray of 6, each bubble is
like experiencing an entire cocktail in one mouthful. With flavours
like espresso martini and mojito, there’s something on the plate for
everyone. We’re told these bubbles take quite a bit of work to prepare, so they only make 10 trays each day.
While the cocktails steal the show, The Roof also offers food to
balance out the booze. For the very hungry, The ROOF Steak,
served with mashed potatoes, buttered vegetables and a hearty
gravy, will definitely satisfy. If you’re more interested in munching
on something light while exploring the cocktails, then try the Beer
Beef Tacos. The four flour tortillas are filled with juicy ground beef,
creamy guacamole and a dusting of grated cheese (friendly tip: add
the capsicum garnish to the top of each taco for an added crunch).
FINAL THOUGHTS
If you’re tired of the same old G&Ts and lukewarm lagers, I recommend checking out the molecular mixology at The Roof. You’ll be
sure to experience something new; and it’s one of the few places to
catch a breeze on these scorching hot evenings. If you’re not a fan
of sweet cocktails, ask your server for a recommendation as a lot of
the drinks are sugar-heavy
