While Burmese homestyle cooking, drawing influence from its neighbors Thailand and India, is the most prevalent cuisine, Myanmar has quite a good variety, especially given that it was cut off from the west for so long. In Yangon, you'll find everything from sushi to slushies. The one-time capital has most of the country's upscale restaurants—we're talking just a handful—but it's the family-run
establishments that are really worth a visit. When you inevitably tire of rice and curry, Bagan and Inle Lake's laid-back, open-air restaurants will lure you in with Dutch-style pancakes, shakes, and the holy grail for many western travelers: guacamole.
