Flavours of Myanmar
Myanmar people have a long tradition of preparing food in their own way and the history of traditional food may be as old as the culture and arts of its people. Myanmar is an agriculture country with rice as the principal crop.
Myanmar Cuisine uses rice or noodles as staple dishes, usually served with a variety of side dishes such as curries with meat or fish, vegetables, salads, soup and condiments.
The itinerary of a visiting traveler to Myanmar will never be deemed complete if he or she has not tasted the Myanmar “Hta Min” (main rice) and “Hin” (curry) to satisfy the sweet tooth.
A Myanmar meal is an interesting area to explore and it is what constitutes the theme of presentation. A typical Myanmar meal is a simple fare, adequate, sustaining, balanced, nourishing by any calorie count, simple to prepare and partake.
There are also a wide variety of local snacks and delicacies. Mouk-Hin-Kha (thin rice noodles served with fish gravy) and Ohn-noh-khauk-swe (noodles served with chicken chunks and coconut gravy) are the most popular.
