Delicious tasting dishes in Myanmar
Our friend Goats on the Road shares their discovery of the best dishes from Yangon to the small Bagan restaurant. The Burmese kitchen has not yet reached the Burmese culinary community, but that does not mean that gourmets cannot enjoy the abundance of tasting possibilities in Myanmar.
Myanmar's different flavours have been inspired by many different civilizations, such as Chinese, Mon, Shan, Thai and Indian. According to which dishes are served, you will have the taste of India, China and Thai on your taste buds. In Burmese dishes, the flavours of one variety of foods are often emphasized, while others are mixed to create a balanced and stratified taste profound .
Burmese cooking is full of seasonings that blend into astonishing flavours. A lot of them are typically from India like hot curries, peppermint and chilli, but also marinated tea leaves, gingerbread and coffee limes are used in the cooking - this gives it the South East Asiatic aroma. It is a salted, fermenting seafood or prawn pasta used in broths, greens, spices as well as major dishes.
It' a corner stone of Burmese cooking, and although it may not seem very appetising to a foreigner' s taste buds to add other seasonings and additives, it really adds value to the meal (think of seafood in a pad Thai). The dishes are usually cooked with a kind of strength, usually in the form of paddy or paddy - no wonder, as Myanmar is the 6th biggest producers of paddy in the word.
Indian-style dishes can have a bit more of a loaf of loaf than a starchy one, such as e.g. puffbread with potatoes, which is usually accompanied by sauerkraut. When immersing yourself in Burmese cooking, you should know that eating in Myanmar is intimately connected to conventional medicines, and it is thought that there are two types of food: cooking and chilling.
As in most South East Asia provinces, eating on the streets is a major part of the Myanmar grocery life, and kerb lunches are not to be overlooked. Inspect the cooktops and make sure they are tidy and always go to a crowded stand - best of all to a stand staffed with locals as they know the best places.
Large towns are the best place to try a wide range of dishes, so if you are in Yangon and Mandalay, you can enjoy eating out on the town. At Yangon you should definitely try the southern Indian-inspired Dasa slice, the delicious Quails eggs treat munt lin ma yoar and the classical shot noodle.
At Mandalay you should not miss the Monta dia, thick pasta with chickpeasmeal. There is also a large amount of spit-meat to try on most road edges. Apart from the dishes I have already told you about, there are a few tasty dishes and dishes not to be missed when you visit Myanmar.
Shotgun, shot, shot, shot! Myanmar has so many different kinds of curries that it can be difficult to have one. From my own experiences, you can order a different type of freshly baked bread every single working days and it has a special taste and herbs. Combine another type of proteinaceous substance such as seafood, eggs, prawns, pig, chicken or sheep and you will have enough combination and variation to survive your 30-day touristic visit.
It is a very popular backpacking treat in Myanmar. It is made of thick, round pasta covered with poultry, seafood cakes, dried beans and a hard-boiled eggs cut into slices. It is a typical meal for breakfasts, but sometimes you can go hunting for lunches or dinners.
It' essentially a savoury consommé of pasta, a stock of spices and herbs, often refined with crunchy bananas. Burmese style pasta, this delicious pasta is typical of the south coast of the country and is prepared with a wide range of meat, seafood, uncooked green shoots, green shoots, green and white peas and brimmed-egg.
The Burmese have also developed their own versions with delicious ragweed and vegetable, spice and meat dishes. There is nothing really to be done incorrectly with a beautiful piece of meat, chickens, fish or prawns on a barb!
Companion him with some paddy and a small piece of sour cream, and you have a good and tasty dinner. Like in most provinces, the best choice of dishes is available in the major capitals - but that doesn't mean you won't find tasty dishes in small communities and off-the-beaten-track communities.
Visit the Green Elephant Restaurant in Bagan for tasty and flavorful all kinds of Currys, but their shellfish freshly curried is about to be killed. We also have sites in Yangon and Mandalay. Yangon is the best place to taste the road cuisine. The best place to try this meal is anywhere in southern Myanmar!
