Yangon Street Food Tour
For those with adventurous taste-buds, a street-food tour of Yangon is a great way of getting under the skin of the destination. Just walking through unleashes a waft of spicy aromas, which even if you aren’t trying are pretty interesting none the same. Start early, and hit the markets which are bustling with local life. You can opt to try as much as you like, and your guide will know what is safe to try. Try out the local pancakes, steam sticky rice with beans and possibly the samosas or donuts. Noodles are a popular breakfast drink for the people of Yangon. Continue to Seikkan Ta Street for another market where you will see palata on offer which are thick pancakes. It is then time for tea, and you can stop at the Muang Aye Tea Shop where you can sip on Burmese Tea (Le phey yay). Cross the street and head to Shwe Myot Taw to try the palata and le phete thoke, traditional Burmese tea leaf salad (tea leaves, nuts and beans). Finally head to Feel Myanmar for lunch.
