Think about it. Myanmar’s neighbors are Thailand, India, Bangladesh and China so I was surprised that this country has a lot more in common with the Philippines than I initially thought.
Like Pinoy food, theirs is a showcase of regional influences probably because like the Philippines, they are made up of many ethnicities. And their food tastes a lot more Pinoy, only a little salty. Take a look at the food in Yangon.
Like Pinoy food, theirs isn’t photogenic. And like Filipinos, there’s just so much oil in their food.
They sure love meat.
And dried fish.
The only difference is, they like their salad as appetizer. It’s unlimited, just ask the server if you want more.
Lots and lots of pre-packed salad!
