05 Dishes to Try in Myanmar - For the foodies! And who isn’t one?

Burmese food has come to light in recent years. If you're wondering why such popularity for this cuisine, well then, try any one of these dishes and you will get it.


Burmese Biryani

When in Asia, especially in countries like Burma, you have to give the local Biriani a try. This is one of the favourite rice dishes in south-east Asia and the locals and tourists alike rave about it. You cannot miss out on an opportunity to try the Burmese Biryani which is full of flavour. They incorporate fresh herbs and produce that makes it all the better. Make sure to get accommodation around areas where there are good restaurants. If you are looking for Nay Pyi Taw hotels you can check out properties like PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw, for a start.


Burmese Naan Flatbread

The next on the list is the flatbread. This is an Indian inspired form of bread that is cooked on a clay pot. This makes the naan bread full of authentic flavour. You will be served with a side dish of freshly boiled peas to go very well with the bread. If you are trying and any street food benders, as you should phone authentic experience, they will plate up a freshly baked naan and pilot with a delicious tea curry. All you have to do now is to devour it.


Rice and Curry

Another rice dish which tops this list will be the local rice and curry. This dish absolutely captures all the delicious flavours of Burma, on a plate. There are a few vegetables and curries that accompany the freshly cooked rice. The curries have mild spiciness which makes it all the better and everyone can stomach it. This will be a good hearty lunch.


Onions, Beans, Pumpkin

So, what is this exactly? These are two types of popular curries which you can have either with rice or roti. The beans and onions doused with tomatoes and dressed in salt and oil are one. This is a simple dish which is bound to make your mouth water; it is simply that good. The other curry is the pumpkin curry which is mild in spiciness and is very juicy and sweet. This is one of the best ways you can try pumpkin out here in Myanmar.


Burmese Fish Curry

The range of ingredients that are incorporated in the fish curries here are truly incredible. Although they are everyday ingredients that you can find in your kitchen back at home, you will be quite surprised to find the flavour it brings about when mixed in the curry. And this is one of the reasons why the Burmese fish curry is well-known around in these parts of the world. You can always order the fish curry with your rice or roti as the main protein for the meal. When in Burma do not forget to taste the local seafood, which will tantalise your taste buds.
