Jasmine: Burmese Food

Jasmine is a small restaurant that sells Burmese food. The food is really delicious. Whenever we don't know what to eat, we always go to Jasmine. My personal favorite is the Chicken Curry. My sister usually gets the Chicken Tandoori, and my dad sometimes gets the Keema Curry. All of these are really good. The vegetable curry is delicious also, but that comes as a side if you get a different lunch special. The prices are really cheap also and you can see the chefs in the back making naan. A lunch special ranges from $3.99 to $6.99 and they all come with vegetable curry, rice, and naan. A lot of food is put into one plate and definitely enough for one person.

Jasmine not only sells delicious food, they also sell a few other things too. They sell Sriracha (which is GREAT with almost everything), pickled bamboos, rice, other foods in jars, different kinds of corn meal/ grains, and a lot more.

There is also a freezer with different Burmese ice creams and a refrigerator with different types of drinks. Our favorite type of drink to get here is the Grass Jelly Drink. It may sound, kind of
weird, but it's very good. (Do NOT get mistaken as Grass Jelly banana drink because my mom accidentally bought four cans once and it tasted horrible) Grass Jelly has a jelly consistency and a very unique flavor. We eat it a lot when we get Chinese shaved ice in the San Gabriel Valley.

The only problem with Jasmine is when you'll get your food. Sometimes you can get your food in 5 minutes. (It's actually been pretty fast recently). Other times you can wait a lot longer. Okay, maybe it's not that long, but when you see other people's food and the smell of naan and curry, it can seem like a long time.
