Variety is the spice of life: ethnic cuisine in Yangon

November 02, 2017

Something special about Myanmar is its diversity. There’s the great geographical diversity ranging from the snow-capped mountains in northern Kachin State to the wetlands of the Irrawaddy Delta and demographic diversity ranging from the semi-nomadic sea-dwelling Moken tribe in the southern islands to the fifty-plus subgroups of the Chin minority in the hills to the west.

With this diversity comes a wonderful diversity of cuisines. Each plate is a reflection of the climate, agriculture, socio-economy and the very people who hold these traditional dishes as part of their culture identity. Often the food plays a major part of any ceremony or event in a community.

The good news is that you don’t need to leave Yangon to find these delicious dishes. Here, we have outlined where to get the best ethnic food and what to order for the ultimate ethnic culinary experience.

Ha Tai Wa

Wa Zone: Ha Tai Wa

This is an unpretentious Wa restaurant in a quiet, residential area where you can sit in typical country style on the floor of their outdoor bamboo houses around a low circular table. There are also indoor, air-conditioned seating options. The food is phenomenal. Traditional Wa ‘porridge’ tastes much better than it sounds and the option which includes beef is a peppery, fiery party in the mouth. The river prawns are simple, succulent and very fresh. The rice set is a fun and traditional and very hands on.

Order: Wa porridge with pounded beef, dried beef, beef beef beef, river prawns

Address: No.4/1 Thirimingalar Street, 8-mile, Mayangone Township(The avenue between the main street and the restaurant is dark so bring a light and watch out for scorpions!)

Jana Mon

Mon State: Jana Mon

Mon State, taking up much of the border between Myanmar and Thailand takes a lot of influence in its language and cuisine from its neighbor but make no mistake, Mon food deserves its own place in ethnic cuisines of Myanmar. Despite how little known Mon food is, the food here will blow you away and you might even schedule another trip here soon. This cosy restaurant is located in walking distance from Shwedagon Pagoda and would make for a great dinner stop after sunset there. Beer is not on the menu but the proprietors are happy for you to buy some from the little shop across the street and have it with your food.

Order: banana stalk salad, stuffed squid, mangosteen pork curry

Address: 114 Nandawon Street (off Yar Tar Shay Street), Bahan

Shan State: Shan Kitchen

With a lot of competition in Yangon due to the popularity of Shan food, this restaurant is among the best. Opened by a Shan repat to Yangon, the air-conditioned and clean interiors are a welcome respite – especially if you have just come from Bogyoke (or Scott) Market over the railway bridge.

Order: Maymyo coffee, Inle hin htote, tofu nway, shan noodles

Address: 26/4 Nawaday Street, Dagon Township

Shan Kitchen

Kachin State: Jingpaw Myay

Kachin food is a delightful, spicy cuisine and uses lots of fresh coriander. Again, beef is what they do best and at Jingpaw Myay, Kachin style pounded rice (with chicken, pork or beef) is warming and flavourful and you can easily imagine it being eaten on the cold Kachin mountains. The pounded dried beef looks simple but is a lip-smacking shock of flavour and so full of herbs and spices that it feels almost medicinal. Blocked noses will be cleared! The restaurant is small and brightly lit but buzzing with locals and foreigners any evening of the week.

Order: Kachin rice wine, dried pounded beef, Kachin chicken

Address: 2B Kyun Taw Street, Sanchaung Township, Yangon

Rakhine State: Ko Ta Ngar

Rakhine food is known for being spicy and fresh and usually features seafood. Yakhine (Burmese for Rakhine) mont dti is a simple noodle salad with fiery green chilies and there are stalls on almost every busy street though rarely with an English signboard. Ko Ta Ngaris a very casual restaurant with a focus on Rakhine food and it’s often bustling with locals downing cold beers to cool their fiery tongues. Seafood is fresh and good value.

Order: squid salad, Rakhine montdthi, draught beer

Address: Bogalay Zay Street (near the corner of Mahabandula Road),

Dry Zone: Anya Ahta

This is the only Burmese place on this list. Anya Ahta refers to a huge part of upper central Myanmar known as the dry zone. Special because the owner is a well-known artist, art dealer and collector, Aung Soe Min, and the walls are covered in the works of local painters, yet it maintains all the best parts of a ‘beer station’ experience and ambience. Much like the Spanish and their tapas, Myanmar people like to snack on simple but strongly flavoured dishes while having a beer and a chat. A lot of the food at Anya Ahtar is meant as an accompaniment to a cold draught beer and at Anya Ahta, they really do go very well together. This place is bustling any night of the week with young locals and backpackers from nearby hostels.

Order: draught beer, dried beef, sausage, tea leaf salad

Address: 37th Street between Anawratha (pronounced Anoyata) and Mahabandoola Street

The Ban Than cliff for traveler

After visiting Hanoi and feeling the heat of 41*C and had a free walking tours in hanoi with Hanoi free tours by foot I come to Ban Than cliff

Ban Than cliff in Nui Thanh district will make traveler imagine that the beach in the small island of Ly Son. but, this place even has a special feature.

Tam Hai Island commune in Nui Thanh district of Quang Nam province is located in a place surrounded by vast sea and strong waves. The ferry will bring visitors to the locality where is the house of more than 2,000 households and 8,000 inhabitants. Tam Hai town is as graceful as other island towns where are beautiful and peaceful with footpaths, small houses and  shady coconut trees combine together/

Local people here often say that, if have an opportunity to you go to Tam Hai but forgetting to visiting Ban Than cliff, you will be considered not to place your foot on this land. With its absence of tourists and primitive feature , Ban Than has made many tourists ad people who has visited here moved because if the charm of the cliff is advertised and promoted , it will attract a huge number of visiter.

The name of Ban Than Cliff (or  Bang Than as written in some documents) has many different explanations. “Ban” can be understood as the surface of a table, a flat surface and “Than” means black. This simple explanation is very reasonable because this land has a lot of black rock with flat smooth surface due to tectonic processes as well as the sea water corrosion. Coming to this area, many tourists has been startled and thought that they’re lost in Ly Son island district (Quang Ngai provinces) because there are many similarities between the two places.

ban-than

Ban Than landscape has many massive stone blocks with bizarre shapes, but the most famous one which is ever mentioned in the poem “There is Ba Che with flowing stream, there is Ong Dun with scales and fins.”

This folk- song mentions to “unique”  rocks of the strange shapes. Ong Dun, a rock with rock layers overlapped each other, is near the seaside. Ba Che is a huge boulder emerging to the sky and looks like a the giant fish head with a space in the middle, where waves can go through. The two blocks are stacked and become attached to each other all “their” life.

This stone makes people think of To Vo gate (the archway) in Ly Son. According to some people in Nui Thanh, the recent collapse of the stone clusters makes a lot of people feel pity for everything is just a memory now.

In Ban Than Cliff , in addition to Ong Dun, Ba Che, there are many other rocks with bizarre shapes: the devil fish, the whale, sea monster … There are also rocks which look like giant mushrooms spreading. Many other rocks are just under sea water surface creating a sparkling black under the water. The rocks here seem to be formed and placed every where by the hand of the Creator. There are large plain surfaces, there are areas where rocks are stacked as huge double cream puffs. If roaming and exploring this large area all day, visitors do not feel bored.

In the journey discovering this scenic land, you can stop at the entrance with coconut trees, cool breeze blowing in from the sea. Looking to the distance, you can see the vast sea with blue water, the boats anchored near the beach.

The only disadvantage of Ban Than Cliff this is that this place gets a huge amount of garbage drifting from the nearby waters each day. Garbage drifts along the coast, gathers in Ban Than forming a great deal which forces local youth groups continuously organize campaigns to clean the environment every year.

Than Cliff people wish this scenic site would be interested by more visitors, tourism could be developed as well as more reasonable measures could be carried out to eliminate waste, keep the rawness, clean and beautiful feature for a place which is often compared to “the second Ly Son island”.

Hoa Lo prison

I just had a free tour with a tour guide come from Hanoi free walking tours in Hoa Lo Prison. So, today I have some information about this prison, I think foreigners should know before visiting Vietnam.

Hoa Lo Prison(later known as Hanoi Hilton) was a famous prison of Crimes and built by French in the wartime between Vietnam and France, it was used by French colonial government, and later North Vietnamese fighters( Ho Chi Minh’s army) during the Vietnam War. In the long history, this place became a breeding ground for the resistance movement in Vietnam, and later on became main holding camp for American Prisoners of War that were captured during the war by Vietnamese army. During its active years, the conditions were terrible and in this prison deteriorated as the number of prisoners increased, and in the years of the Vietnam War American, POW was held there in the truly horrific environment, although Vietnam government denies those claims to this day.

Hoa Loa Prison

Hoa Loa Prison was built by the French between 1886 and 1901 at that time it carried the name Maison Centrale (Central House). As the years went, more and more prisoners crowded this small facility. In 1913 renovated prison held over 600 inmates, but after that but the numbers continued to grow until it held over 2000 prisoners in 1954. Large population, poor and very terrible conditions continued were one of the reasons why this prison became so hated in the Vietnam until now, and many people being sent there, they were treated very badly and they had to eat dirty and smelly food, they became more and more angry against French colonization and their Government . It was recorded that many Vietnamese political prisoners started gathering like-minded people to became one of the symbols of colonialist exploitation that contributed to the start of the Vietnamese war.

After French army fled out of Vietnam, Hoa Loa prison became one of the central points for American prisoner POWs who were captured by Vietnamese army. In addition to the inhumane treatment of the prisoners, Vietnamese government used Immense ways of torture to extract military information out of the US soldiers.

Thank for this great free tours that makes me understand more about Vietnamese history
