Burmese Pork Curry Set
I have posted some post about Burmese curry in the earlier post. This post is the review of where you can eat the curry in Myanmar. This restaurant is good for who missed to eat a popular dishes of Myanmar. It locates in the Yangon International Airport, first floor near the departure gate. As far as I noticed, there is only one restaurant so far after immigration check. They provides almost all kinds of popular dishes of Myanmar like noodles salad, curry set, tea leaf salad, snacks, coffee, tea, and cakes.

Burmese Tea Leaf Salad (လက္ဖက္သုတ္)


Tea pickled ( Lahpet) is probably one of original tea culture in Myanmar. It is unique in itself and I have not seen so far in any other place. There is an old saying that "Of all the fruit, the mango's the best; of all the meat, the pork's the best; and of all the leaves, lahpet's the best".

Breakfast in Myanmar

Mohinga with Chickpeas crispy fritter
Have you ever wondered what kinds of foods do people in Myanmar have for breakfast? Well, since Myanmar is a small country of different ethnic groups and background as a result breakfast also comes in variation. People eat different from state to state such as Bamar, Shan, Chinese, Indian, Kachin and so on. 

Breakfast is available at wet market, tea shop, food stall, or a woman who carries basket on her head to sell food like sticky rice etc., So when you hear a loud voice shouting around the flat, you know the seller is coming.
