The Height of Refinement in Yangon
Dining venues that really scale the highest of international standards are few and far between in Yangon. One such options, however, is the long-standing Le Planteur. Set in a mansion with a lovely garden, the restaurant specialises in intricate fusion creations with dishes running the gamut from foie gras to prime rib.

Sophisticated French Fare
Located a few streets away from Yangon University, Le Planteur sits on an acre of waterfront gardens, occupying a sizeable colonial mansion. The interior is divided into several dining spaces, in addition to an outdoor lounge terrace and al fresco dining area, expertly renovated and furnished to a high standard. Worthy of a spread in any interiors magazines, the decor combines lots of modern touches with antiques from the era, to create a unique atmosphere that bridges old Burma with today’s Myanmar. Michelin-starred chef Felix Eppisser serves a menu of continental cuisine, with French and Asian influences throughout. As expected, the menu consists of traditional staples like fois gras terrine, duck breast and mille feuilles, alongside more contemporary dishes including wagyu beef and sashimi.
