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 […]

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 […]

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.

Imperial Garden review – adequate dim sum in Yangon

Imperial Garden serves up decent – if not brilliant – dim sum (Cantonese brunch dishes of dumplings, steamed buns and more…) in Myanmar Plaza, Yangon. Authentic dim sum can be an overwhelming experience to the uninitiated. Here’s the low-down: It’s composed of a seemingly infinite number of […]

The battle of the Xiao Long Bao – where to find the best soup dumplings in Yangon

800 bowls takes our vote for best xiao long bao in Yangon, narrowly edging out Xi Yang Yang for the quality of the meat. But it still has something to learn from its competitors when it come to quantity of the trademark soup filling.  It’s […]

Sin Yaw review – the #1 restaurant in Nyaung Shwe, Inle Lake?

Sin Yaw review – the #1 restaurant in Nyaung Shwe, Inle Lake?

Sin Yaw is the best restaurant in the Inle Lake area (probably). If not, it at least takes the award for the best, and most attentive staff. People queue up to eat at Sin Yaw. Nearly every other shop front in the little town of Nyaung Shwe […]

Pwe Taw Win review – Authentic Intha cuisine near Nyaung Shwe, Inle Lake

A taste of real Intha food, 10 mins out of Nyaung Shwe (near Inle Lake), in picturesque wooden huts. Full disclosure: one of us had food poisoning before visiting Pwe Taw Win. So we dialed down a bit in terms of quantity and adventure when […]
