The Green Elephant in Yangon: Yet another Myanmar Success

Yet another success story of a Myanmar woman establishing and shining in business..Cherie Aung Thin who is from Rakhine region ( where the best Thanaka comes from ) had been living in Thailand and returned to Myanmar to establish a Furniture and Antiquities Business . Noting the lack of easily available Myanmar food, she persuaded her own chef to open a restaurant which later moved to the current location.
Very nice ambience, needless to say very attentive service. Food is fabulous.
Had a chance to talk to the general manager Daw Win May Aung, a very pleasant woman.

Favorite Dish Gourd Soup
Bean Salad
Penny wort salad
Tomato salad ( they came from Inle I think)
Fish and Prawn Curry
