We have become an instant fan of this fantastic Burmese food, very quick and easy but tastes out of this world.
So happy we can get top food at a great price, our favourite is the chicken curry and the goat curry but they are all very very good.
If anyone out there has not tried the Malaysian Sausages you must, they are to die for. Looking forward to new products coming soon to your menu.
Many thanks Trish

Love your curries, sausages and condiments. The Goat curry is our favourite, followed by the Beef & Potato – They both just melt in your mouth. Great flavours with no heat, so suitable for all the family – But the chilli condiments are wonderful for adding heat for those who want it. Great to have a quick, easy and healthy dinner without getting Take-Away – Easily feeds three adults with salad and rice. Our favourite sausages are the Malaysian one’s with a hint of Coconut – a great addition to any barbeque or even just served up with salad and mashed potato.

Dear Trish…Re: Beef & Potato Curry
Frozen Heat & eat Meal
This is a fantastic meal, very quick and easy to prepare and tastes sensational. It is not too hot, so is perfect to feed my whole family with my kids age 16 & 11, but adding the condiments to your dish to make it hotter if that is what you prefer is great. It is very reasonably priced & fed our family of four easily. It is great if you don’t have a lot of time to prepare meals but still want a nutritious and tasty dinner. We look forward to trying the rest of the menu. Thanks again.

I purchased a Frozen Heat & Eat meal from Trish. We chose the Burmese Beef & Potato Curry and this was for myself and my son. My 9 year old son is somewhat of a fussy eater but after trying his first mouthful, there was no turning back. We enjoyed the meal thoroughly and ate it all in one sitting. For me being time poor and co-ordintaing sports training, schooling and work, it is a perfect option rather than take-away. Can’t wait to try the other products as well.

I had the greatest pleasure of having Burma in Ya Belly for my 40th birthday. A friend of mine at work had recommended it to me, after he had tried the food from the company that works next door to us. I was a little worried that Trish wouldn’t be able to cater for my birthday as it was Easter Sunday but Trish was absolutely fantastic. I also had a couple of vegetarians’ attending and Trish made sure that they didn’t miss out on any food. I would recommend Trish and her staff to anyone thinking about getting a function catered for, they are very professional and the food is just absolutely amazing, I loved all of the food but my absolute favorite would have to have been the Stir Fry Noodles. I was getting really full but just could not stop eating them and even gave the comment that they were that good that they were better than sex, yes people they were that good. Trish is such a wonderful person I felt like I had known her for years really professional but really easy going to and Jen was just as great. You can have great food and crap service or even the other way round but with Trish and her team you get the works, really great food and really great service. I feel that I have made some really good friends. So come on people get Trish and her fantastic team to cater for your next event you won’t be disappointed, every one at my party are still talking about the food and I would definitely get Trish again. Trish and Jen thank you so very much for all you done for me and for making my night even more special I cannot praise you both enough.

We ordered in for our monthly get togethers from Trish @ Burma In Ya Belly due to having new babies and not having the time to prepare the main meal! Not to mention I had tried her curries before and at the thought began to get overwhelming cravings to get some Burma in my belly and share her amazing food with some great friends….so how did it go ???? the outdoor patio area went from loud conversations to firstly complete silence followed by many “ohhhhh yum” … “this is beautiful” … “num num” … “i want the recipe” and even the non curry eater who reluctantly tried said “wow I don’t normally like curries but this is just amazing” ….Thank you so much Trish needless to say we would definitely use you catering again, your food, your professionalism and not to mention your eager to please outlook is highly sort after

Last night Trish brought along some nibbles and curries for us at Le Club de Femmes. I carried the tray of food around to all of the ladies to try – never in my life have I seen EVERY SINGLE woman go back for SECOND helpings of food! Luckily I was able to steal a piece or two before it was all gone, and oh! my! goodness! It was absolutely beautiful! Thanks Trish for your hard work putting it all together last night, and for your professionalism and friendly nature. I will certainly be keeping your business card close by in case I hear of anyone needing a caterer!

Burma In Your Belly has catered for us for our seminars, and I am a regular customer at Circle of Life in Maleny, where Trish serves her fare every Wednesday.
Trish’s food is so yummy that my words won’t do it justice. When I am eating it, there is no space for speaking, as I am savouring every morsel and every moment, as it enters my digestive system!
The best part is that, from a health perspective, it contains all six essential tastes necessary for satiety.
I cannot recommend Burma In Your Belly highly enough. Trish is professional, her food is amazing, and it is reasonably priced. What more could you ask for?

INFO ABOUT ME – HOW & WHY
BURMA IN YA BELLY CAME ABOUT
So how did I end up wanting to be a caterer and share Burmese food? What was the catalyst that created this business venture? Well we need to go back a little in time…After all I wasn’t born in Burma, No; I was last one of the family, born in Penrith, in the western Suburbs of Sydney to an immigrant family in 1972. That made 10 of us now. Dad, Mum and 6 brothers and sisters had immigrated from Burma in the mid 60’s..
Money was tight in a home of 10 so there was very rarely an opportunity to go out to restaurants and dining establishments for a meal. Even for birthdays it was quite a big deal to get your “meal of choice” to celebrate your day and Mum and Dad would bend over backwards to get it just right or at least as close as possible to the time honored traditional Burmese dish. In those days there was not a plethora of Asian grocery shops available, for that matter getting the products required to make even the simplest of Burmese dishes, proved somewhat of a challenge, so substituting something similar to “make it work”, became the norm.
Every now and again, Dad would treat us by “putting on” a restaurant style meal at home, just out of the blue, and it would be the whole gamut of four and five courses, but not just Burmese food, he would scour recipe books all afternoon whetting his creative appetite from Indian to Chinese from Sri Lankan to Moroccan and I am NOT talking about cliché’s Aussie 70’s style Chinese Sweet and Sour Pork or the mundane Mongolian Lamb – for Dad the more rare the better – To him it was a challenge.. Bear inmind, this was in the late 70’s, early to mid 80’s where there was not much available to us in the western Suburbs, bar a few Delicatessens, that manly sold European food and salted and cured meats. I must say I loved these shops too, even as a child it was exciting to me, the smells, that packaging written in foreign languages, the chubby lady behind the counter in her sky blue apron and smock and hair net, speaking Italian loudly, jolly and laughing. Dad would always end up leaving places like that having talked tasted and tried new and strange things.
He taught us that money did not mean class and class was more about knowledge and culture than anything else. So he would teach us about food and its histories and such and his experiences in Hong Kong and India. He would tell us tales of Burmese street stall food sellers and every now and then when we visited him in the City at the American Consulate he would take us to Yum Cha – My fondest of food memories with my family. His biggest annoyance with us as children was “Not trying” a new food. His words still ring in my ears – “Try it, if you like it, good – If you don’t well, you tried it and you know – If you don’t try it you could be missing out on something wonderful” Needleless to say from this, everyone of us as a family unit, all have an ingrained passion for food.
I grew up in a large extended family where it was the norm for my aunts and elder relatives to be cooking for 80 to 100 odd people for no particular reason except that the family were getting together for a catch up – Our Aussie neighbors still laugh at remembering 3 or 4 mini vans arriving at home and the masses of the Burmese family piling out and of course the smells that would permeate across and down the street. “Cooking for the masses” was just what they did. So cooking in large quantities was something I watched and learned how to do from an early age.
For me, from all of this, was born the excitement and delight of food and wanting to share this love with you all…So I invite you all….
