Yangon: 4-Hour Guided Food Tour

1. Yangon: 4-Hour Guided Food Tour

For most, the cuisine of Myanmar is a mystery. This is your chance to hit the ground running and have an insider’s look into this overlooked culinary scene.  Begin at the central Mahabandoola Garden where you’ll meet your guide and visit your first stop for tilapia cooked over hot charcoal served with lime and tamarind dipping sauces. As you weave your way up through the backstreets of Old Yangon, you’ll stop at a famed noodle house to experiences dishes from the Northern province of Shan. Next, make your way into Little India, a bustling neighborhood where you’ll make three stops to try things like lightly-spiced samosas, crispy rice-flour dosas with pickles, dhal and coconut curries before trying sweets at a famous Bengali candy shop. Then move to Chinatown, a vibrant district with a long and fascinating history. Visit an old Chinese medicine store, get stuck into bao buns and fresh spring rolls at a buzzing  tea house, nibble on snacks at a Chinese bakery and try steamed chicken soup at a 3rd generation eatery. End the night along the famous 19th street for a cold Myanmar beer and barbecued skewers.

Really enjoyed this trip, started at a local street food market, then on to a typical noodle shop + quite a few others and finally the infamous 19th Street. My guide was Matthew - he was really lovely, his English was very good and he was interesting to talk to - I would recommend taking this tour. It was nice and relaxed, never felt rushed. In hindsight I would have had a late breakfast or brunch to leave more room for all the food you get to eat, I was stuffed by the end!

Excellent tour with a lot of tasting and a friendly guide. good food, good talks and good laughter. can highly recommend the tour to anyone. also to mention that I couldn't attend my first appointment because got sick on short notice. they offered me to move it to another day. much appreciated!

We were a small group of three people. Matthew showed us great food spots in Downtown Yangon. We enjoyed his company and learned not only about the food we tasted, but also about Myanmar history and culture. I can recommend this tour without hesitation. It was a fun evening.

Well worth the time and money. Good introduction into Myanmar food, which also includes influence from India and China. Very open and good local guide who is willing to talk about both the good side and improvements that should be made in Myanmar.

the guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and the food was outrageously good. he took us to authentic local places we would not have been able to find or navigate on our own.
