YOUR INDOCHINA TRAVEL
Although it is underrated in comparison with neighbouring cuisines like Thai and Vietnamese, Burmese food offers many mouth-watering surprises for the uninitiated. On this evening culinary focussed expedition around the streets and alleys of Yangon - the biggest city in Myanmar - guests will have the chance to sample a full spectrum of delicious specialities from the so-called "Golden Land".
See the main sites of Yangon by open air trishaw and Visit some of the trendiest spots in town
The tour will begin at Sakura Tower where you will meet your guide around 30 minutes before sunset. You’ll begin the evening by heading up to the 21st floor of the tower to Yangon Yangon, the highest rooftop bar in downtown. Enjoy a drink while you take in fantastic views of Shwedagon and Sule Pagodas as the sun sets.
Trishaws will be waiting outside to begin the evening journey. Each client will get their own trishaw and local driver. Departing from Sakura Tower, you’ll take a ride through the downtown area, heading past St Mary’s cathedral and the former Minister’s Office. Once known as the Secretariat, this beautiful red brick building was built by the British in the late 1800s and takes up an entire city block. Famous as the location where national hero General Aung Sang was assassinated in 1947, the inside of the building has been closed to the public for over 50 years.
The next stop will be Pansuriya Restaurant. This establishment is part restaurant, part art gallery, and part antique store. Have a browse through the wares while your first course of the evening is prepared. Here, you’ll be enjoying your choice of starter. Choose from homemade fish crackers, soups, or a number of traditional Burmese salads, locally known as thoke. Salads here can be made with pretty much anything, but typically consist of thinly sliced vegetables mixed with any number of toppings such as peanuts, sesame, or dried prawns. Mixed with a little lime juice or fish sauce, these delectable treats become a great start to any meal.
Try a variety of traditional Burmese cuisine
Our second stop will be Monsoon Restaurant. One of the most well-known restaurants in Yangon, Monsoon has been serving up delicious South East Asian cuisine for years. Tonight for our main, we’ll be trying a traditional Burmese curry. One of the central dishes in Burmese cuisine, these curries tend to be more savory and less spicy than those in neighboring countries.
Then it’s back on the trishaws and a final stop at the Rangoon Tea House. A modern take on the classic corner tea shop, this restaurant is great spot for our last course, dessert. Choose between local influenced treats such as chai cheesecake or the much more traditional falooda, an interesting smoothie like drink.
