With a prolonged restriction on the restaurants and bars to control the spread of COVID-19, many proprietors are struggling to meet the day-to-day expenses.
The COVID-19 prevention committee considers imposing a 15-day stay-at-home period, so the situation does not seem to recover any time soon.
Still, with the holiday season coming, you have ways to stay safe and support your favourite bars and restaurants.
1 Be responsible when you go out
Do not forget to wear a mask and stay six feet apart from others. Many eateries offer takeaways and impose strict hygiene practices by providing hand-washing basins, sanitisers, etc. Make sure you follow them. And never drink and drive!
2 Keep in touch through social media
Many restaurants have Facebook and Instagram accounts to inform their followers of the latest offerings. If you are not sure how to find them, check our list about restaurants and bars. We keep updating them so let us know if we miss anything.
3 Order now to enjoy later
With Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, now is the time to stock wines and meats. You can order Thanksgiving meals from Joitamoi by Chef Orng, Union Bar and Grill, APEX Gourmet, etc. If you want to buy wines and spirits in bottle, check special deals at The Warehouse Myanmar and Cellar Door Wine Bistro.
4 Spread the good word
If you love what they offer, tell others about it. You can express your appreciation on your wall or give nice reviews on the restaurant’s page. There are groups like Myanmar-Yangon Foodie Officials and Yangon Food Lovers to raise awareness for your favourite restaurants and bars.
