5. Shan Kitchen
A decent shan traditional restaurant where you can enjoy varieties of authentic shan cuisines with super affordable prices. A clean area, fast friendly service, and high quality of food are mentioned in most of the remarks. Since it’s a hot place among locals, there might be more customers than you think on weekends.
