Daily Yangon Street Food Tour
This morning your guide and driver will greet you at your hotel and set off on your day of exploring the best of Yangon’s food. We’ll start with a visit to one of downtown’s main morning markets on 18th Street. Here vendors gather to sell everything from fresh vegetables and fruits to fish and meats as well as a variety of dipping sauces and pastes popular in Burmese cooking (including the famous balachung- a mix of fish paste and chili).
Continue past many vendors selling breakfast treats popular with the locals, such as pancakes, steamed sticky rice with beans and fried delights such as donuts and samosa. There are also dozens of noodle stalls in the area where locals gather for a tasty breakfast on their way to work or school.
Stop and taste some of the treats as you walk along. We’ll take a short drive to Seikkan Tha Street, another morning market area with many stalls selling palata (thick pancakes), flowers and fruits. Try a bite of palata or an exotic local fruit.
Having worked up a thirst, we’ll make a stop at Maung Aye Tea Shop the local favourite. We’ll enjoy a cup of sweet Burmese tea (called le peth) and a snack- the stall next door serves fabulous rice flour pancakes with jaggery and poppy seeds.
Crossing the street we’ll stop in at Shwe Myot Taw, an Indian restaurant with great palata, and Padauk Yeik. Meaning ‘in the shade of the gum tree’, this stall is a popular place to have let pet thoke, Burmese tea leaf salad. The fermented tea leaves are served with a selection of fried nuts and beans and can be washed down with a fresh fruit juice.
Next it’s time to visit one more market, Ye Kyaw. This atmospheric market stands near the railway tracks with vendors selling a range of food items on the street.
Finally we transfer to Feel Myanmar for lunch. Feel is a popular restaurant in Yangon with locals who come for the delicious curries and by 1.30PM the food is often sold out. Sample an array of local curries all accompanied by dozens of vegetables, some dips and a soup. This is very traditional, tasty Burmese lunch and a perfect way to complete your culinary exploration of Yangon. (NOTE: should you wish to have lunch elsewhere a surcharge will be applied)
After lunch transfer back to your hotel.
