Simplicity Organic Food and Bakery Review
Enormously charming and truly unique in Mandalay, this pint-size, family-run café is near Mandalay's jetty, an area otherwise devoid of much in the way of dining. The sweet owner and his son speak English well and are passionate and knowledgeable about organic food, the environment, and the use of MSG. There are delicious Chinese-style pastries, some ice cream and, like mana from heaven, proper coffee from a Swiss-made machine, available in several variations including iced (a dream come true) and even cappucinos. On the savory side are traditional Shan noodles, which the locals eat for breakfast, house-made dumplings, and simple stir-fry dishes like chicken with rice and vegetables. 35th St. runs the length of downtown Mandalay, so be sure to indicate to whomever is driving you that you want to be near the jetty.
- Address: 35th St. between 91st and 92nd Sts., near jetty, Mandalay
- Location: Mandalay
