Burma’s people have a long tradition of preparing food in their own unique way which is as old as their cultures and arts. Burmese cuisine has developed its own unique dishes, flavours and textures through the centuries, blending the different national ethnicities’ cuisine, as well as being influenced by the neighbouring countries’ cuisine.

Vegetables are vital in the Burmese kitchen and are served either raw or steamed. These vegetable dishes are often flavoured with a little meat, fish or dried shrimp.
Burmese cuisine is particularly renowned for its salads, soups and curries. Their salads’ uniqueness comes from a balance of light, bright flavours and a wonderful mix of textures, their soups are made of chickpeas or other legumes, and their curries, mild to hot, are made of meat, fish or vegetables are cooked in oil with simple Havourings, and are served over rice or noodles.
Burmese have many traditional dishes, Mohinga and Lephet Tohke are two of them. These two are staple dishes which play significant roles in social occasions. Mohinga, a navourful fish noodle soup, is widely regarded by Burmese to be the country’s national delicacy.
