Our dining culture in Myanmar is different from other countries, even from others in Asia, given the wealth of our agriculture and the rich bounty of herbs, vegetables, and fruit that is grown throughout the country. Our typical dining table has at least 3 or 4 dishes: meat or vegetable curry, soup, baked or fried fish, and some type of salad (but not like a typical Western salad). Not all of these Burmese dishes may be suitable for some tourists’ tastes, but larger restaurants in the country also offer Chinese, Thai, and a variety of western dishes.

Be very cautious when eating meals during your travels in Myanmar and stick to well-cooked food. Do not drink water other than from sealed bottles. Also, be wary of raw vegetables and salads, even in high-end hotels and restaurants; it takes very little to spoil your holiday.

During your visit to Myanmar, you will have a variety of menu choices in many good restaurants and international standard hotels. We have a list of recommended restaurants (Burmese, European, and others) and some comments on each of them. This we will provide for you on your arrival.
