Burmese cuisine doesn’t quite have the great reputation of neighbouring Thailand, China or India, and is relatively unknown to the outside world, but there are some delicious dishes to be tried throughout the country. In amongst the diverse architecture and crumbling remnants of the colonial era, Yangon is a great place to start; with a visit to a tea shop for a simple local lunch or a sizzling barbecque in the streets of chinatown. Or maybe you want to try your hand at some homestyle cooking? – there are plenty of opportunities to join the locals in a traditional village and learn how to cook up a true Burmese feast, with our favourite being in Pindaya. Another must visit for a foodie – Inle Lake. With floating vegetable gardens, fascinating grop crowing rituals and authentic lifestyles, the food here is some of the best. Take a chance to dine at Inthar House and be sure to try the famous Shan Tofu, washed down with a glass of wine from the charming Red Mountain Estate Vineyards. And with bustling locals markets always included on any itinerary, you will be sure to discover plenty of new flavours throughout your tour.
