With rumbling tummies after five hours wandering around Shwedagon pagoda, we took a short taxi ride to a charming little hide out in the centre of town, Aung Thukha. A real foodie find for anyone willing to eat like the locals, we were seated in amongst a spattering of Myanmar families and the odd backpacker who had made their way to this quaint eatery. No menus, just a hot top with a variety of curries and other dishes. “Fish one, chicken one, other fish one…”. We ordered a selection which was brought to our table with steamed rice and traditional adornments tea leaf, peanuts, coriander and lime. This would be a nightmare for anyone in great need of knowing what’s actually in your food, but if you’re into surprises when trying national cuisine, then this is the place! We washed it down with a frosty Myanmar lager, and all to the tune of 4000 kyat each (about $4).
