Like the name of this great restaurant is indicating; they are specialised in everything you can eat from the duck. And of course more. Bur I can recomment you to order a special duck soup, or a half-warm salade of duck-feeth, with or without a rather spicy sauce.
Favorite Dish: The situation of this original restaurant is on the riverside of the Yangon River, along the Strand Road, and not far from the famous Strand Hotel. Try to find a table along the riverside, if free tables, because it is a very popular place for local people and ex-pats to have diner here.
In the 50 th Street, take the Mahandoola Road, coming from Citycenter and paralel to Strandroad, and turn right on the 50 th Street. On no. 9 - 13 you'll find an excellent Pub, English style restaurant in the evening crowded with local Myanmar and also Werterns, coming for dining of for lunch.
Favorite Dish: Wide choice of western plates, wines and drinks at modest pricing. Very confortable chairs and warm interior. When ful downstairs, there is a lot of place upstairs.
Good and frienly service. A good place to hang out a bit, after a hot day in Yangon.
If you like Japanese kitchen, this is a smaller but excellent Japanese restaurant, typically Japanese,
t.i.t.s. you can only order real Japanese plates. Of cause many Sake's are on the card. Even when the Myanmar specialities are always excellent, sometimes it is a good thing to change to Japanees dishes.
Favorite Dish: I ordered a Hakusuka, an Otoushi, a Shougayaki and a saké, all was excellent at a reasonable price.
This is one of my favourite paces in Yangon. Actually, it is a family favourite. It has a great selection of different noodle dishes, all from different parts of Myanmar. Ok, they also have some Korean, Chinese, and even one spaghetti dish (my son always chooses this one).
The location is also very very nice with the restaurant in a colonial house and a very nice outdoors to go with it.
You can even get a local favourite here, chicken feet noodle soup.
Favorite Dish: I think my favourite is kentoung noodles (the veggie version). But I like all the things on the menu that are or can be vegetarian (have tried most of them by now).
The Myanmar Chinese food has a strong local flavour (much like the Indian Chinese Restaurants with their Gobi Manchurian) and it is always a better bet for dinner time as the food is fresher at that time. Bamar food is prepared in the morning so it is better for Lunch.
Feel is a group of restaurants, i had dined at Feel 2 but it is no more but Feel 3 has come about. on this rainy night, a short taxi ride from the centre, we were at the Feel 3 Resto. very efficient service in fact they write down what time the food was ordered and at what time it was delivered, it was about ten minutes. the usual nouveau look to the resto and very good service. a glass of wine would have been nice, but alas this is Yangon.
I've lived in Yangon for a year and have compiled an informal list of useful places. Mostly these are restaurants, though there are some other services contained within. Generally speaking, I go for the fairly simple, cheap to moderate type restaurant.
The rest of the blog consists of stories, observations, etc., but is not specifically travel-guide related.
It was about noon when while walking from Chinatown to Bogyoke market on Maha Bandoora street, our noses caught up the smell of freshly baked delicacies. We picked up ones with sausage (more or less like a hot dog). It was definitely a nice experience.... at least it slowed down our hunger in the best and cheapest way
Another excellent Shan restaurant in an area that is packed with them. I was taken here by a Shan friend, and they obviously knew what they were doing. I defy anyone who likes Asian food to look at the photograph and not start salivating. I can assure you, it was every bit as good as it looks.
It is the usual sit on the street affair, with quick and friendly service. I must admit, I love the Southeast Asian concept of eating on the street, despite the fumes. There is something very magical about watching the whole street pageant whilst you eat.
The title of this tip is perhaps slightly misleading, the place does have a name, but I don't read Burmese so I just have no idea what it was.
A tip for the uninitiated (as I was). Apparently the trick is to remove the pieces of sausage individually and dip them in the sauce rather than eat them straight from the pot.
Favorite Dish: What's in the picture - the clay pot with sausage. Absolutely wonderful.
This place is a surprise, also if on the Lonely Planet, we found no tourist at all, the food is really good, really cheap, and full of Burmese customers!
Is really characteristic and real!
Favorite Dish: You can taste a lot of small amazing apetizer, something similar to the Indian pakora, don't ask me the name!! The language is not easy!!!!
I promissed don`t give the name of this restaurant.
I only can tell you the name of venomous snake, whose blood I`ve been drinkin` - it was a Viper...
They say that blood of a snake increase the men`s strength ( if you understand ) - I must tell you :
Men , do it !
Ladies , compel your men to do it !
Favorite Dish: Snake`s blood
Street hawkers fill the streets around Chinatown and Scott market. As a foreigner, there is a chance that you may get overcharged by the hawkers who do not label the price of their wares. If you're keen to try out something, hang around and see what the locals are eating and paying.
As a word of warning, your stomach and local bacteria may not go hand in hand so take precaution if you must (fortunately, I did not have that problem in Yangon).
Favorite Dish: Good eats include beancurd in ginger syrup, sugared coconut dumplings, bean snacks and fish noodle.
frenchowned and swiss managed and very chic, it is like the dream of europeans about asia.. decorated well and priced to match..good ambience
Favorite Dish: cakes coffee but could also have lunch or dinner. the landscaping is what an european imagines the east to be like.. like rousseaus paintings of african interior without having ever been there..
this is an expensive restaurant and bistro including baguettes and cakes
this upmarket bakery and pizzeria with incredible service is in front of aung san stadium. all sorts of cakes and pastries. when you are off to visit a burmese home, it would be a good idea to stop here and buy a few cakes
Favorite Dish: I tasted for the first time a green tea cake here. strange taste, acquired i suppose
The atmosphere is straight out of Madras India.. faces the fragrances and of course the food.
Favorite Dish: I had an indian style tea while chatting with a friend and observing the strange mixture of symbolism.. only in myanmar have i found.. hindu budhists people who believe in both religions and have no conflict. this establishment was a tamilhindubudhist..
this indian establishment with writings from the koran decorating the walls serves up a good biryani at a good price.
no sooner you sit down and order what you want.. what sort of biryani.. within minutes your hot plate of biryani is there...
Favorite Dish: chicken biryani.
what i liked most about the place was that by the second time you were there you were already been treated as an old customer..
and the ubiquitous question.. which country?
