The first of these fairs was held in 2008, shortly after Cyclone Nargis made its devastating landfall. This year, write organizers at the Moegyo Humanitarian Foundation, "We are very pleased that we are able to serve hard-to-find special dishes to our visitors. Even many Burmese contacts are telling us that it will be a special treat. As in previous years, we will be serving the dishes at a very reasonable price to raise money for the orphans and disadvantaged children in the poorest parts of Myanmar (Burma)."
The 2010 food fair will be held on Sunday, June 13 (which gives you all Saturday to enjoy the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party). Click the photo for a closer look at what's on offer, then line up some dining buddies — when else will you find a Burmese feast like this?
