Yangon Street Food
Downtown Yangon is a dilapidated mixture of broken sidewalks, crumbling colonial era buildings and food vendors. Merchant Street is particularly crowded with vendors selling anything from spicy cherries to savory crepe-like pancakes filled with goodness. Burmese food is neither Indian nor Thai, but a delicious flavor palate of its own. These kids were sitting behind their mom as she cooked. They seemed to represent the spirit of change Burma is experiencing now.
