In Yangon’s bustling food scene, congee restaurants are a rarity, save for a few modest streetside stands tucked away in Chinatown. However, to the delight of diners, a new addition has emerged in the vibrant neighbourhood of Sanchaung.

Welcome to Congee Bear Premium Congee Restaurant, where a diverse array of congees and Chinese cuisine awaits. With prices ranging from Ks5,000 to Ks10,000, it’s a remarkably affordable option. Even if congee isn’t your preference, there are set menus featuring rice paired with your choice of proteins and veggies.

Select your favorite bowl featuring chicken, pork, or prawn, each accompanied by side dishes such as Ei Kyar Kwae (fried dough sticks), Balachaung (fried dried shrimp), and pickled mustard. These accompaniments provide a medley of sweet, salty, sour, and savoury flavours to complement your congee.

For those with a sweet tooth, indulge in options like tragacanth gum herbs cooked in milk and fruits or oat with milk. And if you’re feeling parched, quench your thirst with a variety of fruit juices or canned drinks available on their menu.

In conclusion, Congee Bear stands out as a rare gem in Yangon’s bustling food scene, offering a diverse selection of congees and Chinese delicacies. For the scarcity of such establishments in the city, it’s poised to quickly become a favourite among diners. Delivery is available, too!
