Absorb Teahouse Culture
As the diner is to the US and the pub is to the UK, so the teahouse is to Myanmar. Gathering spaces serving up steaming hot tea and snacks such as samosas, tea leaf salads and paratha can be found throughout the country. Most are simple places, but a higher level of venue can be found in bigger cities such as Yangon where options like the Rangoon Tea House offer potent cocktails as well as more traditional fare.
