Welcome to MYANMORE’s weekly letter! These are our personal experiences and recommendations around Yangon and beyond. Let us know yours in the comments.
New things we have noted
Lumbini Tea Room – the latest buzz in the F&B scene downtown. Celebrity visits, strategic location at The Secretariat, and the menu focusing on classic Burmese tea-shop snacks are probably the reasons behind its quick rise to fame. Check out our first impression: https://www.myanmore.com/2022/05/hottest-breakfast-spot-in-town-lumbini-tea-room/
Food we can’t get enough of
Mangoes, mangoes and mangoes! The king of fruits is everywhere. I’ve been having like two mangoes every day. You can find them at wet markets, supermarkets, online shops or on the trees in your neighborhood! Check our shopping guide and some facts about mangoes: https://www.myanmore.com/2022/05/its-mango-season-shop-at-these-spots/
Place we are revisiting
Cafe Salween has launched Myanmar’s timeless Mohinga with a modern twist. You can have it with grilled fish or prawns and one selected topping at Ks5,000. If you’re looking for a savoury treat with hot soup during the rainy season, try it and let us know what you think.
Event we will visit
The Junction City Youth Market which is featuring over 25 stands of local clothes brands, handicrafts and other items. Great chance to see upcoming entrepreneurs and brands in Myanmar.
10am – 8pm | 28-29 May
Experience we plan
Staycation at M Gallery Nay Pyitaw with a free upgrade to a suite room(!). Just one more weekend left to enjoy this plus the bonus to pick your own mango from the trees outside the room. This weekend there is also a Pool Party! https://www.facebook.com/mgallerynpt/
