Zawgyi is the place that most tourists find easily by themselves. It is located almost next to Bogyoke market and is very attractive with its nice terrace. So i usually find mostly westerners here.
The food is good (the owner is a Frenchman) and there is choice in both western and asian food. Now that they have a new wood oven, the pizza is also nice (it used to be so-so). And the sandwiches are really nice. I don't know much about the Burmese/Asian side of the menu since i hardly ever eat that when I'm here. I can eat that at home so there is no need... I usually crave something like a nice sandwich or a pizza when i go here.
I go here about once a month just to relax and watch people (one of my favorite pastimes). The terrace gives a good view of the street and what happens there.
So, in short, even though it is a bit touristy it is a nice place to go to.
Some of my colleagues have found a very nice drink on the menu here. And hubby nowadays orders that too sometimes. It is a mix of fruit and some alcohol and it's called a power mix (i think). Will check on the name for sure.
This was a very pleasant little restaurant, which was clean - and had very visitor friendly toilets! - both a must. We enjoyed a few meals here - mostly local food, but there were some basic Western dishes available on the menu.
There is a small gift shop inside the restaurant and on the first floor. The cool, did I mention clean? environment, was a pleasant break in the middle of the day.
Our first sampling of Myanmar Beer also, which was a very refreshing drink in the middle of the hot day, and to relax with at the end.
Favorite Dish: The local noodles were more than tolerable!
