“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to spread the word that today is Burma Restaurant’s last day. Dinner is from 6 pm-10 pm tonight, first come first serve. Burma was the first restaurant I went to when I moved to DC more than 6 years ago, and I’m sad to see it leave.”

Burma’s website says:

“We are the premier Burmese restaurant in the metro DC area. This restaurant introduced Burmese food to the nation’s capital. The Burma serves authentic, regional cuisines from the Southeast Asian country. Delicious noodles and curries, salads and appetizers, vegetarian and meat dishes. Since opening it has been the winner of Washington Best Bargain Award, winner of Washington Cheap Eats 10 years in a row and reviewed by area’s top publications. Popular gathering place for scholars interested in the country. Monthly meeting place for Chinatown business networking.

Owing to the geographic location of Myanmar, Burmese cuisine has been influenced by China, India and Thailand. The diversity of Myanmar’s cuisine has also been contributed to by the myriad of local ethnic minorities. Burmese cuisine is characterized by extensive use of fish products like fish sauce and ngapi. These salads have always been popular as fast foods in Burmese cities.”

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
