Ethnic

Myanmar has cuisines more diverse than its ethnic groups. Its favourite dish Mohinga has at least a dozen variations based on the fish and thickness of the broth. Some towns have their own native food that is nothing like any other ethnic cuisines. If you want to delve into Myanmar’s colourful food cultures, these places are a good start.

Mu Ai Kachin food restaurant is hidden away on a small side street just off Hledan Road opposite the Hledan Center. The restaurant is simple, immaculately clean, pleasantly cool and surprisingly small. Each of the six tables is decorated with a bamboo vase of freshly cut flowers—it’s a nice touch, and one that alludes to the attention to detail and efforts this little restaurant puts into its offering.

What better way to tingle your taste buds than by indulging on some authentic spicy Burmese cuisine. At Nga Pichat, which roughly translates to “Fried Fish Paste,” you’ll be getting a really different perspective to what real Burmese food taste like. Grab a cucumber stick, dip it in some homemade fish paste, and crunch away.
