Burmese cuisine and food in Myanmar (Burma)
We were a little afraid of Burma food on our trip to Myanmar (Burma). Food in Myanmar has always had a bad name, and frankly, I've received little but bad news from others. Whilst Myanmar did not quite meet our high global standard, I was fortunate to be amazed by Burma's indigenous cuisine, top quality domestic cuisine, an exhilarating selection of food and even some rather flashy cuisine.
Throughout our trip we visited many of the high quality, tourist-driven dining establishments (the cute old mother was in tow), but much of the unforgettable food in Myanmar was found in shops and favourite pubs. These are our best Myanmar food we find on the way and the food to try in Myanmar.
This" Nepalese cuisine" is best found in a restaurant where you can choose the meats and various side orders or spices. Whilst the pages differ from seller to seller, the favorites will probably be a greensoup (fishy), maybe a cress lettuce, a blended thyme cursor (often again fishy) and my own favorite a baked beans cursor.
Burma's Curryfest is served with cooked paddy rices, green veggies and a seafood pastry dipping (ngapi). It is a favourite luncheon for the tourist and one of the easiest to find Burma dishes - one not to be left out. Thoke' means'salad' and there are many in Burma's cuisine.
By far the most popular lettuce, at least local, is the laphet thoke, a somewhat iconsic Burmese meal with marinated leaves of greens and a mixture of other snacking components. When not a big fans of food, the tealeaf also comes as a blended greens with a fistful of trimmings like maize, chilli, shrimps, ginger, seafood and lemon.
A fascinating mixture of texture and flavors and, if not the starter, tealeaf lettuce is ideal as a side dish or for munch. Myanmar's favourite breakfast meal is on the to-eat menu of many and is often considered the informal Myanmar special. Whilst the fish-based soup is a little overwhelming, other flavors make the rum come to live with aromas of onions, cloves, lemongrass, ginger and bananas.
It is a soup-like kind of seafood cursor serving over a pasta and if you are looking for a satisfying dish, try mohinga with cooked eggs and beancraps ("akyaw"). Mohinga is the breakfast favorite, but he can be found all day throughout Myanmar. Looking for an alternate breakfast, we trip over the deliciously pasty meat shay, a Myanmar noodlesoup, delivered with the broth on the side (as I prefer).
Meeshay has different local flavours, but the favourite dish is a thin pasta of thinly sliced rices covered with a deliciously seasoned meats and accompanied by soups and spices. The side dishes often contain crispy bean sprouts, crispy fryed pig skin and tasty squares of Shan-Tofu rolls (fried twice; New York Gyaw).
Beaten in mortars and pestle at the roadside of Myanmar, this spicy pepper lettuce is perhaps better known for its origin in neighboring Thailand (Som Tam). It is known in Myanmar under the name Let Thoke Sohn, which means "everything thrown by hand", which this court summarizes quite well. During immature pineapple is the joint addition Let Thoke son provides apparently never-ending rows of colorful flavors to merge with flavors of savoury seafood gravy, spicy chillies and dried prawns.
Have Thoke's son sellers are easy to identify through light-colored stacked cart trucks with colorful fruits. Burmese take this favorite mixture of wheat, icing cream, sunflower oil, sunflower oil, pepper, sugar, melted flour, melted flour, melted milk, pepper and more. Gourmet cakes are the desserts of the Myanmar of choice and can be found on the side of the road to the high-end restaurants' dessertsmenue.
Most of the yummy treats are eaten on the roads of Myanmar. In Myanmar there is a new road kitchen that really needs a job (I'll get there). Some of my favorites are for the time being spit-roasted prawn meat, a Myanmar crêpe filled with grilled spices (also known as Myanmar Pizza), and mouth-watering round, spherical bits of roasted curd and dumplings.
Not only does Myanmar border India and China, it was also part of the trading itineraries. For this reason, Myanmar has developed appropriate food crops and influenced many of Burma's dishes. I' m not going to dive too deeply into these food kits, but it is important to know that they are there, in full.
Many of Myanmar's better dining places are Mandarin or Hindi and are often a "safe option" for the less adventure-seeking chef. You can see the influence of China and India at road levels, where you can buy flatbread, samosa and wrapped wontons (see our introductory course to India food or China food on the street).
Most of the'research' and as always I make the best of it; I drink everything and everyone, from the powerful Palm-Toddy to the unusual sobriety. One of my favorites is Myanmar Beer, which you will find everywhere, but for a similar rate Mandalay Rum costs just over $2 dollar for a 70 cl tank; for a gentler option the Grand Royal Whisky is a top tiple and with native Red Mountain Estate Aythaya wine is outdoing.
