Enjoy the most popular dishes in Myanmar
Burmese cuisine is lesser known as compared to Indian, Thai and Chinese food despite being bordered by these countries. Many Burmese dishes carry familiar hints of Thai or Indian flavors that could be easily discerned through its strong tastes and flavors.

Most ingredients used in Burmese dishes are fresh and organic. People find the most straightforward way to make food tasty, yet true to the original taste of the ingredients. Whether they consist of meat or vegetables, ingredients can be roasted, stewed, boiled, steamed and fried, or some combination of these, following no specific recipes. Some dishes are even served raw, such as tea leaf salad.
  • Mohinga


    It’s unofficial but if Myanmar were to name a national dish, Mohinga would be it. Flavored with turmeric, ginger, chili powder, garlic and lemongrass, this fish soup is breakfast in a bowl. It’s also, a street-food snack or the main dish of a comforting meal. Optional toppings include a sliced hard-boiled egg and akyaw, deep-fried crispy veggies and/or disks of lentil batter. The dish is seasoned to taste with a squeeze of lime and/or flakes of dried chili.

  • Tea Leaf Salad

Pickled tea leaf is a national favorite and this salad dish is often served at celebrations or ceremonies as a snack or dessert or even appetizer. This is the most popular Myanmar dish in daily life of Burmese people. It is usually prepared by mixing the sour, slightly bitter leaves, shredded cabbage, slided tomatoes, nuts and peas.

    Unlike sweets elsewhere in Southeast Asia, sweet snacks aren’t generally packed with sugar. Burmese sweet snacks somehow always include grated coconut. It is essentially grated coconut with coconut milk wrapped in rice paper. The presence of coconut milk is similarly used in Thai cuisine. You could also add strands of noodles in it for a textural contrast or simply to make it a more filling snack.

  • Curry Rice

The variety of side dishes (potatoes, pumpkin, okra, broad beans, leafy vegetable, tomato salad, etc) may differ from place to place but this culmination experience remains the same.
