Where shall we start with Burmese food? In such a vast country, with so many different ethnic groups, cuisine deserves to be recognized as an experience of itself. From the spicy dishes of the Northern regions – like Kachin and Chin states – to the fresh recipes of Shan State where vegetables have the place of honor, you won’t be able to resist! Myanmar’s cuisine can be defined as a melting pot of Indian, Chinese, and Thai influences.
Food lovers will want to extend their stay in Yangon where all the specialties – from all around the country – are available at every corner: from the traditional Mohinga – fish soup with rice noodles, eaten for breakfast to tea leaf salad or Burmese curries to samosas, Indian biryani, or Shan noodles…there is something for everyone. Although street food tours are the best options to sample the array of delicacies the Golden Land has to offer, our food experiences consist in even more: join a local family for lunch, learn traditional recipes with a local chef, dine with style in the most unique places of the country or sip on refreshing cocktails while delving into the views. You will soon realize that Myanmar is much more than its temples.
