Food diary in Yangon

Two weeks with family and friends mean non-stop eating. I don’t usually remember to take pictures of my food because they go straight to my mouth. But since I started my blog, I try to remember to take pictures.
Located between China and India, Burmese food has Chinese and Indian influence.

Chicken curry is not too spicy like Indian curry and cooked with yellow split peas and potato.

Rice noodle (MeeShay)
Rice noodle with meat sauce. It is a speciality of Shan State. But it is originated from China from Yunnan province and is called Mi Xian.

    I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with the food in Myanmar, the local food always seemed very oily, and bland (in the tourist areas anyway). The tourist areas always had other choices though, so I certainly did not starve there !

      Yes, Burmese curries are mostly oily, But definitely not bland but in the tourist areas they overgeneralized that foreingers don’t like spicy food so they generally prepared bland.
