This restaurant only serves breakfast and it is always full ! The staple here is noodles. Take a pick : sichet (noodles with fried garlic), meeshay (Mandalay noodle), tobu nwe (noodles with bean curd) orand Shan traditional noodles. They make tea and coffee fresh for their customers, no instant sachets, and they are against the use of MSG. No wonder customers come back every morning : quality food always wins the hearts (and the stomachs) of the people.

This is a perfect place to sample some local dishes in an authentic setting. Take a seat outside and enjoy the relaxed vibe of the restaurant as you sip tea, or savour the unofficial national dish, mohinga. All of their food is worth trying and it’s incredibly cheap.

This longstanding institution is a great place to sample a wide range of Myanmar food – everything from rich, meaty curries to light, freshly made salads. The flavours are more subtle here than elsewhere, emphasising herbs rather than oil and spice. It’s almost constantly busy, but manages to maintain gentle, friendly service and a palpable old-school atmosphere, making the experience akin to eating at someone’s home.

Long-standing in Yangon’s food industry, Green Elephant remains popular for tourist groups. The restaurant offers a vast array of different dishes, and are a great introduction to Asian cuisine for those not willing to risk street food. The restaurant is pleasantly decorated; the servers are attentive and efficient. Highly recommended are their sweet desserts but bear in mind that the restaurant is quite expensive compared to many other Asian-style restaurants in Yangon.

290 U Wisara Road, after the junction with Dhammazedi Road (up a narrow side street), Kamayut Township,Yangon,Myanmar.

Set in an attractive wooden colonial home, House of Memories is a one of a kind in Yangon. They dish out mostly Myanmar specialities but also have Thai, Chinese and Indian dishes. The main draw for many is that this was once the office of the country’s independence hero, Aung San, and upstairs, you will find a few artifacts from his time. Their balcony and garden are nice and breezy.

The famous big bright yellow smiley face of Happy Cafe & Noodles can be found in quite a few venues in town. The most enjoyable setting is in the garden of the beautiful colonial building which shelters the inya Road Branch. Their patio is the place to go for some relaxing drinks and a couple of shared plates of Myanmar foods. Their menu focuses on Myanmar snacks, rice and noodles but offers Western options too (and cheap cocktails).
