When Myanmar opened to the world, people explored the country’s cuisine, which has been hidden for over 50 years. From our Myanmar travel experts, here are the top Culinary Tours that we recommend any tourist to try on the holidays in Myanmar.

Kinds of food

Many cities in Burma are available for Myanmar food tours with the harmony of tastes and experiences so the eaters can have a chance to eat food by all senses.

Pork sticks served with meat broth are a challenge to dare tourists to try. The sticks are every part of the pig except the meat, so you can eat the slices of the ear, tail, or livers. The sellers often set up the table alongside the street.

Another kind is tea leaf salad, which combines tea leaves with shredded cabbage, crunchy deep-fried beans, and some other ingredients, creating a spicy and bitter taste. The food is versatile. Depending on the foodies, it can be the main dish, appetizer, and snack. It’s believed that tea leaves can prevent sleep. Try the plate and see whether it is true or not.

A famous fruit mainly grown in Myanmar is durian which is known for its stinky smell, and people often say that you should not bring it on trains or buses. Durian combines savory, sweet, and creamy all at once. Despite the taste, it can be found everywhere, such as in ice cream, cake, or curries. Therefore, many tourists have unforgettable experiences when trying durian.

However, many people are addicted to durian after experiencing such an odd taste without explanation. Do you dare to try this fruit, or can it stop you?

The cuisine includes noodles such as Nangyi thoke, Shan-style 'tofu' noodles, and Mohinga served with special broth and flavor. They are usually cooked with herbal fish, egg, chicken, or pork, making a dish smell and taste excellent. 

Exploring Myanmar is not about having a meal and traveling to famous sites, but it is about discovering the traditional cuisine. There are many street food stalls side by side on the streets awaiting the tourists and being part of the bustling city. Yangon is a paradise of food, especially for foodies, attracting millions of arrivals each year.

To diversify the experience of tourists, several Myanmar cooking classes are opened, offering opportunities to learn how to cook traditional food for tourists. Afterward, they can make dishes from the preparation to the finishing step. 

Apart from the food, travelers can combine it with visiting historical and religious attractions. 

With many experiences in operating Myanmar tours, Myanmar Private Tour can create the most suitable and memorable trip here.
