Mandalay, like Yangon, has a respectable food scene too. It is like the Penang of Malaysia. Street food is a must-try. These small bites can be discovered throughout Myanmar but Mandalay is one of the best.

What makes the tea shops so unique is the Burmese tea or lahpet-yeh. This delicious, traditional beverage consists of black tea combined with condensed milk as well as evaporated milk. As basic as it seems, the preparation is actually an art and is fairly amusing to view!

The “tea master” gets a large pot of boiling dark tea on the range and also puts the hot drink in a smaller sized pot adding condensed milk and evaporated milk for the sweetness. With dexterity, he then transfers the mix to another receptacle, after that back right into the very first pot and repeats several times to make certain it is perfectly combined. He after that fills a bunch of tiny mugs as well as begins once again with another batch as the very first mugs are already taken away by the waiters. The outcome is an extra sweet, caramel-colored drink that will certainly make you want much more!

Tea stores are fantastic locations to enjoy cups of milky tea and likewise numerous foods of Myanmar. They serve baked sweets along with meat steamed buns and dim sum. The typically served recipes are deep-fried tasty snacks, deep-fried bread offered with a potato curry or baked breads.
