Khiri Travel Myanmar offers some foodie tours at various places in the capital: Yangon Evening Program, Shwedagon Pagoda, and Chinatown’s 19th Street, home to BBQ and all kinds of rice dishes.

In Mandalay, Khiri Travel has an evening tour for beer, BBQ and a performance of the Mandalay Marionettes. This is a fun way to explore the city starting with a visit to a viewpoint overlooking the Irawaddy River’s lively fish market. We will then continue to the busy Yadanar Night Market to have some traditional snacks before heading to one of the most famous beer stations and BBQ restaurants in this former royal city. Our guide will order the food and make sure everyone is satisfied. Around 8.30 pm, the excellent Mandalay Marionettes theater show begins with a performance by a mix of traditional dancers, musicians and puppeteers.

Alternatively, for guests who like to fully experience the culinary arts of Myanmar, we can organize a cooking class in coordination with a visit to Inle Lake. Travelers are invited into a local home on the lake to prepare a complete meal complemented by Burmese htamin jin, the distinctive dish of fermented rice, a specialty of the Intha one-legged fisherman people from Shan State, Myanmar.

Shan cuisine is famous for its refined taste. Khiri Travel also offers a half-day cooking class for the opportunity to make some amazing dishes with a few local ingredients. This tour starts with the chef taking travelers to the open market to choose some fresh produce to bring back to the kitchen. Then it is time to unlock some secret Shan recipes and cook a delicious meal while enjoying an apéritif.
