That steak and Guinness pie at the next table over is not an apparition. 50th Street is a proper pub, one that's been honing its craft since it opened in 1997, a lone island of burgers adrift in a sea of noodles. Today, the bi-level bar remains enormously popular with expats, foreign tourists, and a few wealthy Burmese. In addition to colonial favorites, the extensive menu includes a selection of pizzas. Portions are hearty, the better to be washed down with smoothies,
cocktails, and draft beer. Beyond the food, 50th Street is somewhat of a clubhouse for the cities expats, so you'll find them here nightly, vying for pub quiz prizes or playing billiards.
