Zawgyi: Nice terrace and western food
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.
Zawgyi House Cafe: Clean clean clean
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!
