Sample Menus :
In Myanmar, to be “Ei Wuk Kyay”, meaning to be hospitable, is the criterion of perfect social behaviour.
Our food culture is based on sharing with monks, to whom many of the Buddhist Myanmar offer food on daily basis, on special occasions called “Soon Kyway” and sharing lunch boxes among colleagues at work.
The Monhinga :
The Monhinga, the Myanmar Bouillabaise, is considerate to be the National noodle dish of Myanmar and is especially popular in Yangon, the capital city that lies in the southern delta where fish is abundant.
This particular dish of fish noodle soup is served with spices, ingredients and condiments, chick pea fritters with fermented Somen noodles, catfish, gourd fritters, lime wedges and crushed red dried chili with fresh coriander and fried onions.
