Where to eat in Ngapali beach, Myanmar

Our favourite restaurants in Ngapali Beach, Thandwe We could write a whole blog about Ngapali’s postcard perfect beaches, turquoise temperate water and lush hotels but let’s be honest, that’s not what this blog is for. Upon arriving, we quickly realised that every meal in Ngapali […]

Tin Tin Aye review: the best mohinga in Yangon?

Tin Tin Aye review: the best mohinga in Yangon?

Tin Tin Aye serves up a rich and intense broth for those who really truly appreciate mohinga. Mohinga is a divisive dish. For some, the prospect of eating fish-based rice noodle soup (especially in the morning) is too much to contemplate. For others, the pure […]

Sofaer & Co review: modern pan-asian cuisine in the heart of old Rangoon

Sofaer & Co review: modern pan-asian cuisine in the heart of old Rangoon

Promising new addition to the Yangon restaurant scene, serving up Burmese, Vietnamese and other pan-asian offerings Pan-asian cuisine can represent food at its best, or at its worst. It’s far too often a sloppy label for ‘asian’-esque menus featuring dishes that fail to ring true […]

Rangoon Tea House – our top five dishes and why we love Burmese tea shops

Ok so it’s about time that we wrote about Rangoon Tea House. We’ve held off for so many reasons. Part of the impetuous for writing this blog was to celebrate some of the lesser known but delicious eateries Yangon had to offer. And let’s be […]

Myaungmya Daw Cho Mohinga – award winning mohinga shop

Serving up light fish-laden ‘Myaungmya’ style broth, there’s no wonder why Myaungmya Daw Cho continues to win awards for its mohinga noodles. “I only eat mohinga from Myaungmya Daw Cho” declared a friend. So it was with great anticipation that we tasted our first bowls […]

Jing Hpaw Myay review – great Kachin restaurant with its quirks

Jing Hpaw Myay review – great Kachin restaurant with its quirks

Excellent spot to sample a delicious range of authentic Kachin dishes, even if consistency isn’t always guaranteed. Another day, another great Kachin restaurant. We’ve just reviewed Agape Kachin Food Channel, also in Sanchaung Township. But Jing Hpaw Myay is a completely different dining experience. Agape […]

Agape Kachin Food Channel review – top of the soup noodle game

Agape Kachin Food Channel review – top of the soup noodle game

Ultimate comfort food in the form of spicy herbaceous broth, indulgently sticky noodles and tender stewed beef in a popular Kachin diner in Sanchaung Township. Myanmar’s not short of noodles. There’s seemingly countless variations, dozens of different types of noodles, preparations, broths, sauces, fillings, from […]

Nying Ko Ko review – hidden lunch spot between Mount Popa and Salay

If you happen to find yourself on the bumpy road between Mount Popa and Salay, stop by Nying Ko Ko for flavourful curries in the sleepy town of Kyaukpadaung. Let’s say you want a break from the awe-inspiring ancient pagodas of Bagan. And let’s say […]

The best breakfast in Bagan – Pyi Wa noodles & Min Myanmar teashop

Ditch your hotel breakfast of lukewarm sausages and stale toast and immerse yourself in the Myanmar breakfast culture with noodles, tea and deep fried goodness. When your hotel package comes with breakfast, why wouldn’t you eat there? Perhaps because you can find ten times the flavour […]
