Myanmar’s food is heavily influenced by neighbouring China, India and Thailand, with regional variants nuanced by its own ethnic minorities. Burmese cuisine is a delicious mashup of sour, sweet, earth, and funk from ingredients such as fish sauce, lime, dried shrimp, and fermented tea leaves. Start off with fluffy, sweet egg prata and an order of tomato salad, a tasty jumble with cabbage, onion, and cilantro bumped up by the crunch of crushed lentil cakes. Mohinga is an aromatic bowl of straight-up comfort foodÑrice noodle soup in a catfish broth with banana tree root and lemon grass. The velvety sweetness of Myanmar milk tea softly tempers the vibrant flavours.
