Places to Eat in Yangon

Yangon boasts a wide range of food, ranging from the mixed recipe of Indian, Chinese cuisine to the tasteful Shan noodle and Mon curries.
Though the food scene in Yangon may not enjoy the same international prestige as other major Southeast Asian cities such as Bangkok and Singapore do, you’ll find no shortage of cheap and cheerful local cafés in the city, as well as a number of upscale restaurants, many of which are located in hotels. With an equal focus placed on both local specialties and Western-style classics, here are our Forbes Travel Guide editors’ picks for five of the best places to eat at in Yangon:

1. Feel Myanmar Food.
Pull up a chair and order a bowl of mohinga (Burmese fish-and-noodle soup) at this popular local spot that seems to always be packed during the lunch and dinner hours.
2. Happy Café and Noodles.
Find a seat either in the airy indoor dining space or outdoors in the garden, order a bowl of Burmese-style noodles and we’re confident you’ll leave raving about your experience and feeling happy indeed.
3. Traders Hotel, Yangon.
You’ll likely have to restrain yourself from overindulging the heavenly spread of international cuisine laid out in the morning at this gorgeous luxury hotel. This sprawling buffet is ideal for fueling up before a long day of sightseeing – and the food itself is excellent.
4. Le Plenteur.
This romantic restaurant located a short ride away from Shwedagon Pagoda offers modern European and Indochine fare served in a charming dining room with decidedly colonial ambience. You can dine indoors in the red-brick mansion or outside in the lush garden, and order from either a set or a la carte menu.
5. Mr. Guitar Café.
The cocktails flow freely at this lively spot that serves solid Western, Burmese and Asian-fusion cuisine and hosts live music every night of the week from a talented house band that regularly welcomes guest singers.
