Burmese food is a mystery to most. Fear not. Join Matthew and his team of foodie insiders to get a sneak peak of Yangon’s culinary scene and discover the influences of Indian and Chinese cuisines on the city.
Kick off from the central Mahabandoola Garden where your guide will take you to the first stop – grilled fish barbequed over hot charcoal and served with lime and tamarind dipping sauces. As you amble up through the backstreets of Old Yangon, you’ll dive into a famous noodle house famed for its authentic dishes from Shan province.
You’ll start to see a marked difference in the dishes as you enter Yangon’s Little India. En route though the bustling neighborhood, you’ll make several stops to try hot, lightly spiced samosas, crisp dosas best dipped into a variety of pickles and curries and a famed Bengali sweet shop.
Your next stop is Chinatown, a vibrant district with a fascinating history. It’s not short of places to eat, but not all are made equal. You’ll make stops at old Chinese bakeries, 3rd generation soup houses, a lively tea house for bao buns and springs runs and much more. End with cold Myanmar beer and barbecued skewers along the famed 19th street.
*Sorry veggies, this one isn’t for you. We’re working on a meat-free Yangon tour which we hope to launch soon.
**Vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every Yangon food tour will be the same. Fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff.
"When it comes to Myanmar cuisine and Yangon’s foodie scene, no one knows it better than our guide Matthew and his team of culinary guides. Join him on his daily Yangon food tour to get to grips with the delicious yet little-known dishes in the city. "
The tour departs from the base of Independence Monument in the central Mahabandoola Garden. Your guide will be wearing A Chef's Tour t-shirt and waiting for you on the steps. There will be more details on your booking voucher.
This tour is designed for adventurous eaters with an interest in discovering the food locals eat. This is a walking tour covering around 2 kilometres, but the terrain is flat and the pace is gentle. The tour runs rain or shine, so bring an umbrella and wear comfortable shoes.
