Where to eat in Burma?

Jump to last reply

Gearing up for our December trip and had a thought today about starting to jot down places we should look at for dining.

Will be visiting Yangon, Bagan and Inle and wondering if you all have suggestions on where the best places are (or at least better places are, given all the 'meh' type reviews I've heard about Burmese food in general.)

We'll be staying at the Strand in Yangon, Tharabar Gate in Bagan and at the Inle Princess in Inle. I've heard the food at Tharabar Gate in particular is pretty bad. So I guess any reccos we can get for near the hotel would be appreciated.

We're definitely foodies and have most likely been spoiled on our recent jaunts to Thailand, Vietnam and China as far as food goes. I'm fully expecting to not be wowed after reading some of the TRs on here. And, of course, that's fine--not every trip can provide amazing food. This trip is really all about experiencing the country and the culture. But, that said, looking for some diamonds on the rough...or, at the very least, the most passable meals we can find.

Thanks in advance!
