Real Burmese Food As Cooked in the Provinces

Burmese Food

Burmese food is great and for extra variety there are very good Indian and Chinese restaurants all around the country. Whenever asked for the best and tastiest Burmese food people will say, “The food cooked by my mother.” And that’s true as a traditional Burmese restaurant would always serve the richest curry and the best meat for the guests and hardly serve any vegetables. You see vegetables are normally for poor people who can’t afford meat….

However, the newly opened Taing Yin Thar restaurant is offering a whole new choice of Burmese food. Forget about traditional heavy curries. Go for “ethnic food,” as they call it, which comes from different corners of the country. Try the spicy Rakhine food, the vegetables from Kachin state or the dishes from the mountainous Shan state. Myanmar isn’t just ethnically and geographically diverse. It offers a very varied culinary landscape with some gems that deserve recognition on the world’s kitchens. Find your own culinary discoveries at Taing Yin Thar.
