World Chefs Without Borders, MCA & METRO Myanmar support Chin Community

” CSR – Chefs Social Responsibility, Myanmar 2020  ” 

Chef Dominic Mang, Chin MCA Chefs & young volunteers from Mindat arranged all dry food donations to Mindat city communities:

The Old Folk s Home, Fountain of Love – Home outside of Mindat got dry food donations on 29.8.20

Next to food donations for COVID19 Hero`s Mindat at Police, District & Township families to, 

Much thanks also to U Shein of Oasis Resort MIndat & his daughter Chef Shing Shein for a great Dinner.

Thank YOU METRO Myanmar & volunteer YOUNG MCA Chefs,….for all CSR efforts

5020 kg of branded quality – healthy food & beverages aid were loaded at Yangon Warehouse by Oliver & Giacomo on 27.8.20 to a 10 ton truck sponsored by Dr dent Julia Fruehbuss of German – Myanmar Dental medical Group. 6 Yangon MCA Chefs were on the way by Highway busses overnight to Mindat.   On 27.8.20 early morning loading the 10 ton truck at Warehouse with young Chef Giacomo,- having the 4th round of MCCL Culinary & Pastry live TV show over the day – the bus ready by 17:30 pm start the near 1000 km journey through all central Myanmar – direction to India – Rakhine Border. MCA – WCWB got clearance info the same late afternoon that there are no travel restrictions due to COVID19 Virus developments on the way – an all night drive with traditional Burmese Breakfast in Pauk – Sagain. Than climbing the Chin Mountain with air quickly got more thin. Chef s Hlaing Tun Oo@Moe, Zin Myo Nwe, Khin Khet Khet Khaing, Oliver – Giacomo ( Ye Nanda Khin last moment needed to care for his mother in Yangon ) joined the Young Chin Chefs around Dominic by 8:00 am in front of Mindat City Gate.   

As the situation of COVID19 changed more or less over night in Yangon with the many COVID19 positive cases by grave neglect of COVID19 rules & laws ( all today virus easy shuttled by fully booked and no face mask ensured Myanmar National Airline and Highway busses from Sittwe and Thandwe ZERO social distancing coming from Rakhine – 100% opposite as we saw on all busses & planes Yangon to NPT, Mandaly, Bagan, Heho etc. It is for others to find out why from Rakhine – Sittwe & Thandwe travelling in fully booked planes and busses was permitted – not cared about by the COVID19 Task Force Myanmar ?? With the bitter food to eat for every one today in Yangon ).

So just in front of Mindat gate at early morning we learnt ” NO ENTRY for the Chefs with the 5020 kg Food Aid to Chin Communities ” – all were quick temperature checked by a mix of all GAD & Police at Mindat overnight established gate. We and poor villagers were stopped for Right – Health and Liked. In front of our eyes and cameras so ” ZERO COVID19 Law Enforcement to the Rich Class in Myanmar by Mindat Police and GAD “.  As usual still in today s Myanmar ” Lugy ” biggest cars VIP – Pajero s drove through the Police and Kayaka gates ” Not Checked – Not Temperature taken “. Every one knew ” This is Myanmar ” so no one cared to much. Each poor family on a bike with three – kid in the middle and chicken on bamboo basket at back were ” Harsh Worded “ near bullied to stand and follow a ” Mindat GAD Text Book of Covid19 Law Enforcement – We liked it as it could save lives. So in reality the GAD & Mindat Police efforts would become useless once one in the ” LUGY – VIP ” can brings the COVID19 Virus into town or some of his guests in the car. We counted 1 Big Car over 10 times crossing the Check point Un controlled – and were even not Mindat people.  Be VIP ” is a near free to do anything at all time Ticket still in Democratic Myanmar, a generational issue – young , modern and by internet global news informed and  educated NEW Generations of young Myanmar long time do not like to accept anymore. Equal rights and Equal treatment – so more expect from Elder Myanmar ” Equal Follow the rules by a honest heart and commend sense “ young Myanmar, ” Mind setting their way of Healthy Community ” through Myanmar. ( Just when Myanmar`s State Counselor had a verbal fist onto the tables last week, things started to move at Law Enforce standards,- with first great success the new Government stroke through criminals, their ” protectors ” and ” Business VIP based ” communities all over Myanmar from 4. to 10.9.20 against illegal sexual exploitation, illegal business and braking of all COVID19 Health Care Laws and Rules,- ( all of course were only possible with Security Units – ” Closed eyes & ears back up ” )   a state of the art – first time nation wide Law Enforcement which brings hope to normal people in Myanmar: New Light of Myanmar news 12.9.20 ).     

Our plan was clear and aim of WCWB – Myanmar Chefs, as Code of Conduct ” Safety for all and all Families First “. We never needed to be in side of Mindat. The overnight established gate was best for us. We quickly downloaded as the truck arrived to smaller three wheeler trucks for direct distribution to homes of elder and for orphanage. The rest Mindat MCA Chefs volunteering with Chef Dominic sent over 4000 kg to the Mindat MCA dry storage. From here all multi ethnic & multi religious communities came ( social distancing & with small amount of group leaders ) and picked their food aid share up,- others Chef Dominic & Mindat Chefs delivered in small groups ” Face Masks on and Social Distanced ” mostly just dropped at a places gate for the communities to take it in later by them self.    

Message and Audit Confirmation by Chef Dominic 3.9.20:

A Secret of Best Taste @ The Secret Taste Fine Dining

,…. the latest culinary secret,- is still a secrete @ the Secret Taste. The top fine dining restaurant around the corner had its first ” Try & Tell ” us invited fine dining guests from Yangon and oversea this Sunday 23.8.2020 to this new, modern setting with much light and space most well designed and first class interior. Nestled within one of the hidden pearls of Yangon` s top residential areas at the corner of Magin Street & Zaburit Street in Yankin ( 09 965331575 ). Opened it s door s for a moment and had show cased it top trained service staff and an international standard fine dining cuisine of highest levels. A light – healthy menu with many great visual and culinary applications, combinations and modern culinary art. 

The young, energetic and very brave in times as today,- Ma Su Thant Sin@An and her brothers and sisters created a culinary dining place where your heart beat drops when you enter the great designed restaurant all in white and you feel free, relaxed and quick able to forget Yangon and the outside world. It could be felt from the first step in,- that here no one opens a restaurant to make money only,- so cause of love to quality arts, interior: Culture and Culinary fine dining combined. 

Well known Executive Chef for fine dining and modern – healthy cooking Chef Thein Soe leads the team with Chef Thet Htoo Zaw & Chef Thet Naing Tun. All three chefs belong to the some best chefs of Myanmar in Western as well Myanmar Traditional Fine Dining,- with their 8 chefs strong team. 

A combination of East meets West with a ” crispy cheese & tofu ” in a thin wafer topped with wasabi an caviar as a light tapas followed by an excellent seared ” Yellow Fin ” tuna where all flavors complimented to top fresh yellow fin. Served as fresh from a cold sea over the mist of dry ice, very well done – ” Adventure Dining ” again perfect in taste – unbeatable in texture, just marvelous. 

A light leek – broccoli soup with a crisp from the bakery prepared us well for an ” Exotic Food Angel “,- the sous – vide black Angus flank steak – ” grain fed ” cooked to perfection, juicy, tender full body flavor and seasoned through. A wonderful job by the Chefs. Complimented with Myanmar s potato mash, Angels Mico leaves and Cauliflower puree.

So before the menu started a for me top culinary taste came with the fresh Rosemary herb butter all the freshness of the herb, light creamy and well seasoned I remembered my time in the Provence in France where all these herbs grow as now fresh also in Myanmar.   

A refreshing lime sherbet in its own fruit cleared our pallets, refreshing mint prepared us for the grand final. A ” Chili – Lime, marinated Foie Gras,- pan fried and mango salsa was just a fantastic closure of a wonderful dining experience with best care by all the service staff, great wines and good bread.

As said early – the moment you step into The Secret Taste, you will forget the outer world,- the interior art and setting, much light and clear concept made me feel free and light. It is a sure a new place for highest culinary dining so it is also sure a place where one want to come back to and feel the lightness, relaxing atmosphere created by Ma Su Thant Sin,- or as in her family business or fitness goes often together with wellness. The Secret Taste is sure a Wellness place for Dining. Thank you for the evening, yours

The SECRET Taste will open its doors soon for the public and invited friends and culinary experts to taste, feel and get treated – give advise and support that the SECRET Taste team can even refine the already very well service, cooked and hosted Fine Dining Hospitality at this latest Myanmar Restaurant. Look out and be with the first in a view days and weeks.   As a 4 decades French Fine Dining Culinary trained,-  The SECRET Taste is sure one of the top places to make Myanmar a great Travel destination for people of highest dining standards. Or just drop in over the day and chill out with a tea or coffee at the excellent designed living room areas and green garden. Forget you are in Yangon.
