Myanmar (Burmese) Food Restaurant in Bangkok

This is the repost from Myanmar Today website. The original article about Myanmar restaurant in Bangkok can be found here.

For those Myanmar food lovers living in Thailand or visiting Thailand, it is not always easy to find Myanmar food in Thailand. We at Myanmar Today would like to point those Myanmar food lovers to a Myanmar restaurant in the center of Bangkok. There is one Myanmar restaurant near Bumrungrad International Hospital near Sukumvit Soi 1. The restaurant does not have a special name – simply called “Myanmar Cuisine”, and serve authentic and delicious Myanmar food to customers. Each set meal consists of one serving of rice and one dish and cost around 50 baht (less than 2 US dollar), which is considered quite reasonable. The restaurant serves around 20 dishes for breakfast and lunch. During breakfast, they also serve Monhingha (Burmese rice noodle soup). You can also order Burmese style milk tea for your breakfast or lunch. Popular dishes serve here include Burmese style pork curry, fried roselle leaves, Burmese style chicken liver curry, and fish curry. The restaurant regrettably does not serve halal food though. The staffs are quite friendly and food preparation and display are quite clean. The restaurant usually closes around 4 PM so dinner is not an option here. [.....]  read more

This is a favorite Burmese food. Originally from Chinese community in Myanmar, it has become a popular food in cities. Called “Wet-Thar-Dote-Htoe”, it literally means “Pork on Stick”. Various parts of the pig are cooked with soy-bean sauce and seasoning. The parts include carious internal organs like intestine, liver, kidney, spleen, heart, lungs, tongue as well as meat, skin and cartilage. They are then cut into small pieces, and put on tiny bamboo sticks and served. The vendor usually sells on the road side, with all the food served on a large metal pan with charcoal stove underneath.

Teashops in Myanmar

Teashop - Mandalay

Teashops are important and integral part of life in Myanmar. As a foreigner who first arrives to Myanmar, you will be surprised to see so many teashops in Yangon and everywhere in Myanmar. They are everywhere in every street. And there are always customers in every teashop. Nowhere in South-East Asia would you find such a large number of teashop. When I was young, there were not as many teashops as now. And the attitude of our parents was that “sitting at a teashop” is a waste of time. We, me and my friends, were always told not to sit at a teashop. That was 15 years ago. Now, everything changed. We Myanmar people use the word “sit at a teashop” because we really sit at a teashop for a very long time, sometimes even hours, after ordering just a cup of tea. The teashop may sell a few snacks. And there is always free flow of plain green tea. You can order as much as plain tea as you like free of charge. So the main reason we sit at a teashop is just to sit, and chat. Well, there is more than just sit and chat Teashops are where friends meet each other, where business are done, where news and gossips are exchanged. You can meet people and hear latest gossips just by sitting at a teashop. There are many styles of teashops in Myanmar. But the most popular one is the road side teashop, where the teashop is opened on a pavement on the side of the road. Small low tables are laid down on the pavement, and the customers sit on small stools. Usually, nice tea is served with a few snacks, and free flow of plain tea. If you really want to experience Burmese way of life, you should sit at a teashop and have new wonderful experience. [.....]  read more
