There might not be any Burmese restaurants in Buffalo yet, but you can get a taste of Burmese cooking, and many more flavors from around the world, at International School 45's "A Taste of the World" on Friday.
With students from more than 30 nations, when the International School hosts a food sampling event, you know they're not talking about salsa and chips. Besides Burmese food, there will be Asian egg rolls, Middle Eastern baklava and hummus, flaky meat-stuffed Somalian turnovers called samosas, and more, said International School program coordinator Kathy Foy.
The school, at 141 Hoyt St., will welcome visitors to its International Festival on Friday, March 26 from 6 to 9 p.m. At 6 p.m., student performers will begin entertaining in the auditorium. At 7, it's chow time, with samples going for a dollar or two.
Admission is $2 children, $3 adults, with a limited number of tickets available at the school through Thursday at 2:30 p.m. Call the school at 816-3300 for availability.
