My niece’s party at Dagon Burmese Restaurant

My sister, Nedra, hosted a lovely party for her daughter, Asia, at Dagon Burmese Restaurant in Honolulu. We celebrated Asia’s graduation from the University of Hawaii as a Registered Nurse.

Asia and her boyfriend, Jason:

There were 16 of us at this long table:

The Burmese food was fantastic! We started with Tea Leaf Salad (a mix of Burmese tea leaves, fried garlic, beans, peanuts, yellow split peas, sesame seeds, lettuce, tomato and dried shrimp):

The food at Dagon Burmese Restaurant is excellent. I have no complaints whatsoever. I would love to dine here again and try other items on the menu.  There are many meat dishes that were not ordered, because my family tends to be vegetarian.

Asia is just starting her life as an RN. I wish her only the best! Good luck, Asia!

    I think it would be hard work being a nurse, but rewarding as well. Congratulations to your niece.

    That food looks absolutely wonderful and your niece is a beautiful girl. The party had to be a total success. I cannot avoid asking, however, the significance of her gun tattoo on her arm and the hand-grenade on her neck? Unusual for nurse I would think. Is there a specific story to go with them?
