[/su_brhrbr]In Burmese cuisine, Khow Suey, from Burmese ခေါက်ဆွဲ, is a noodle dish that comes from the mountainous Shan State. It is a one-dish soup meal made of egg noodles and curried beef or chicken with coconut milk, served with a variety of contrasting condiments. A squeeze of lemon also adds tanginess to Khow Suey. The dish is similar to the Burmese noodle dish ohn no khauk swe, literally “coconut milk noodles”.
