Yangon is certainly not your typical foodie paradise! Most people who go there often do so for business or cultural purposes and not for a food trip, so it might seem strange that we are doing a special foodie guide to the city. But fret not, Yangon is quietly becoming a foodie capital of Myanmar and growing in popularity within the ASEAN community too. Here, you’ll find Italian restaurants side by side with traditional tea houses, and fine dining establishments nearby buzzing cocktail bars and clubs. With the influx of tourism and foreign businesses, the Yangon food scene is fast becoming diverse and a force to be reckoned with.

Rangoon Tea House

The absolute must-visit place in Yangon when it comes to a foodie trip is Rangoon Tea House. In recent years, this has become the centrepiece on which modern Burmese food is built upon. Started by a young business owner, this establishment combines the best of both worlds – a bright modern tea house on the first floor and a traditional cocktail bar of the second floor. The food on offer here is fresh, delicious and full of flavours to satisfy your tastebuds.
