When you explore Myanmar, make sure to try a local breakfast on the street! Ask for Ei Kyar Kway, a delicious fried dough stick, and dip it in a cup of Laphet Yay, Myanmar’s creamy tea
Having recently joined the global tourism scene, Myanmar is opening itself up to a world of travelers – with plenty to offer. Its colorful cuisine, with influences from Thailand, India and China, is something we at Easia Travel are particularly excited about sharing with curious explorers. In this fourth edition of our street food guide series (read our first three blog articles here), Myanmar’s flavorful local food is in the spotlight.
Known for its rich and strong flavors, Burmese cuisine offers an array of mouth-watering dishes that excite the palate. Street food vendors entice customers with local favorites such as samosas, Lahpet Thoke (a tea leaf salad) and mild curries. Mohinga, the unofficial national dish of rice vermicelli in a fish-based broth, and a favorite of Linn Htet Htet Zaw, our Sales Executive for the German Market, can be found everywhere and at any time of day in Myanmar. “Myanmar people love to eat it and it is an essential part of Burmese cuisine. Travelers visiting our country have to try it!”, Linn recommends.

They can then end their day with our activity Yangon – BBQ Night Dinner, enjoying a locally-made feast.
Visitors can also venture further north and take a leisurely local trishaw ride through Mandalay in our tour Mandalay – Trishaw and Street Treats. Here they can observe the daily goings-on of the city while eating some traditional snacks along the way.
