In Japanese, Gekkõ translates literally as “moon-shine”.
Gekko is located on the ground floor of the beautiful Sofaer & Co. building in downtown Rangoon. It was completed by Isaac and Meyer Sofaer in 1906. Both brothers were Baghdad-born, Rangoon-educated Jews. As well as owning many commercial properties in Rangoon, Isaac and Meyer were successful traders in their own right with interests in wines & spirits amongst others. Isaac was the architectural designer and Meyer made a success of the trading business by getting exclusives for luxury goods and supplying expats with imported groceries and spirits.
Gekko was Yangon’s first true open Japanese kitchen with a charcoal fired Yakitori/Robotayaki grill and cosy cocktail lounge. The menu is focused around charcoal fired Yakitori, with several vegetarian options available, as well as classic Japanese dishes like Katsu Curry, Ramen, and an extensive menu of sushi and sashimi. More recent menu additions include Korean and Vietnamese style dishes, as well as a creative weekend brunch offering dishes such as Matcha Pancakes, Salmon and Scallop Congee, Daikon or Beef Bao and Momofuku inspired Sirloin Ssam The Japanese inspired cocktail menu is courtesy of Singapore’s famously discreet 28 Hong Kong Street, as well as group bar manager Jen Queen and their charming bar manager, Puia.
This is the perfect place to pop in for a beer and some Japanese tapas after work, relax and catch up on emails with their fast fiber optic internet connection or settle in for a proper meal and taste their extensive collection of unusual Sake, Shochu or Japanese whisky. Their Friday night Jazz nights, with live music from 8pm-10pm remain one of Yangon’s most enduringly popular nights out!
