The turmeric-yellow tofu salad is pretty much the same thing. There will definitely be bowls of moh hin ga, the thick catfish chowder, laced with transparent rice noodles and thin sections of banana-tree trunk, garnished with crunchy split-pea fritters, that is powerfully flavored Burmese national dish - a soup strong enough to overpower even that Pakistani soda.
