By the end of our half day trekking we asked our guide where he would recommend we have a lunch in Kalaw. Very very modestly he proposed his family restaurant. We had no objection
And what a dining experience it was!! Food was freshly cooked after we ordered it. Everything was excellent, tasty and excellent value (for two just 8,000kyats = less than 7US$ )
It was my best original dining experience in Myanmar.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED (and not listed in LP)
Sam restaurant is agood place to arrange trekking trips, as it is one of the services in Kalaw recommended by LP.
Un restaurante muy agradable y asequible donde tomamos comida India y Shan servida siempre por alguna de las hermanas o ya también por alguna de sus hijas
A very nice restaurant and resonable on price where we had Indian and Shan food,
served by one of the sisters or now also by some of their daughters
We had a Mandalay Beer to wet our appetite (cheapest price here) and ordered a mutton curry and a beef curry which tasted as nice as the many side dishes (promised on an outside pancard): veggies, tomatoes, bamboo sprouts, ocra soup, green beans and spices.
There was one sauce that smelled very, very bad and we put it on another table
For this delicatesse we each paid no more than 600 Kyatt (less than US $ 1)
Right in front of the Cinema is an Indian Restaurant/Tea House where you can have the most delicious pancakes with mutton.
You only pay 350 Kyatt and can eat no more than 2.
The tea is the best in the city.
For starters, you can go out on the streets to the numerous foodstalls
the 7 sister's restaurant is run by 5 sisters. oh boy did we eat here!
Favorite Dish: all seemed good, but it was here where we finally found olaf's fave curry. and in the middle of burma! long way to come on a saturday night after the pubs have shut.
It's called 7 sisters, but there's only 3. They run a tiny restaurant serving food which contains meat and spices, a rarity; we stuffed ourselves silly! and, because kalaw is a hill station, we froze. This is the first time i've shivered (from the cold) in S.E. Asia. A treat to be remembered.
Favorite Dish: Try any of the burmese items, we had the curry. After a week of eating food with no flavour, this made up for it. Actually looking back, this was the best meal we had in Myanmar. More pictures can be found in the travelogue
