Dining Out in Yangon

20 12 2016

For my final evening in Yangon, Myanmar, I was very fortunate to have the company of a young Myanmar lady Pinky who I was told had spent a lot of time visiting my aunt in Osaka on weekends with friends while she was attending college in the Japanese city.  I was amazed by her excellent Japanese and ecstatic for her taking me to a home cooking kind of restaurant, very popular with locals.  Let’s admit that Myanmar cuisine is not particularly sophisticated but the food here was amazingly tasty.

You can choose from the menu but you can also go up to the serving counter and choose your dishes.
