More about Yangon | Myanmar Hotels
The beach was constructed in 1901 by the Sarkies Brothers, the creators of the legendary Raffles Hotel in Singapore, and is a symbol of Myanmar with its three-storey columned Victorians. Around us, Yangon provides the visitor with a treasury of nineteenth c. architectural treasures and well-known Buddhist places such as Shwedagon and Sule Pagodas.
Begin your Myanmar trip at the Residenz, explore Yangon's varied legacy and buy extraordinary gemstones, preservatives, jade and varnish. We have the best guide service around Kiplings Mandalay, between the Shan Hills, the palm-fringed Ngapali beaches and the unexplored Myeik-Archipel.
Yangon Myanmar Beach Hotel | Luxury 5 Star Hotel
While Yangon may not have reached a place among the world' s gourmet capital cities, we strongly suggest these remarkable facilities, starting with our own delicious French-Mediterranean food by famous chef Patrick Périé. At the beach restaurant. Beach goers have every right to fancy House of Memories (No. 290, U Wizara Road, Kamaryut Township; +95-1-525-195 or 534-242) and serve genuine Myanmar cooking in an atmospheric, hundred-year-old manor house surrounded by lush greenery.
You can also return to Le Planteur (80 University Avenue, Bahan Township; +95-1-514-230) in a rural mansion near the Shwedagon Pagoda, although here you can enjoy not only an elaborate menu of wines and cheese, but also modern tastes of Indochinese cooking. A historical commercial building near The Strand, Monsoon Restaurant & Bar (85-87 Theinphyu Road; +95-1-295-224) always offers favourite meals from Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.
It is recommended to request a desk at the windows to observe live on Yangon St above your Thai vealcury. In the Rangoon Teahouse (77-79 Pansodan Road; +95-9-979-078681) we like to stay under the high blankets and buzzing crowds for a lunchtime rival among Yangon's élite and gulp the mulga fishing broth, aromatic Currys, tealeaf and penny wort lettuce and about 16 kinds of burmesian teas.
The Yangon Bakehouse (Pearl Condo Training Café, Block C, ground floor, Kaba Aye Pagoda Road, Bahan Township) is a charity company that employs most of its staff from deprived circumstances that we like at least as much as the savoury green salad, poultry pâtés and above all the most delicious candies like Yangon's candy.
In Shwe Sa Bwe (20 Malikha Road; +95-9-42100-5085) underserved Myanmar youths are cooking their way to a better living by becoming cooks and working in the country's nascent gastronomy. If our customers say they want to "eat like locals", we suggest Shan 999 Noodle Store (130/B34th Street, Kyauktada Township; +95 1 389 363), the small two-storey store where we buy Yangon's most tasty Shàn k'auq black thin silky pasta in hot poultry stock or the glutinous Shan pasta and always a crisp fruity smoothies or two.
Nobody has done more to put Yangon on the menu than the Myanmar-born proprietor of Sharky's Yangon (117 Dhamazedi Road, +95 1 524 677), whose cheeses were allegedly a basic foodstuff for Nobel Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi during her detention. Sharky's was brought out of distress in the years when Myanmar was under army control and stands out for its amazingly constant qualities, from tomato, spinaceous and rocket to Indian Ocean salt water fleurs, a justifiably renowned barbecued hen and a particularly habit-forming home-made icecream of hazelnuts and cocoa.
We' re especially thankful for Sharky's latest'Downtown' position in an stylish, white-washed former settlement on 81 Pansodan Road, just five minutes from The Strand.
