Food & Drink


Burmese food is similar in style to neighbouring Indian and Chinese food, and can be very spicy and pungent. Being such a large and diverse country brings with it a great many local specialities to try, and Burmese food generally is tasty and varied. In Myanmar it is particularly important to only to drink bottled water, and ice in cheaper restaurants is probably best avoided. Also be careful when eating from street stalls, especially if you’re not accustomed to roadside dining in Asia.
