Eat and Drink

  • Burmese cuisine offers a variety of dishes, which are comparatively rich and spicy. The way of cooking is influenced by Chinese, Indian, Bengali and Thai cuisine, and respective dishes are found on most menus in restaurants all over the country.

  • Typical examples of Burmese dishes are mohinga (a soup made from fish and rice noodles), hingyo (clear soup with green vegetables) and kaukswe (consisting of chicken, noodles and coconut milk). Traditionally only tea or water is taken with food, but nowadays soft drinks and beer are also popular.

  • Everywhere you go Chinese green tea is available free of charge, which is probably the best drink to quench your thirst.
