Burmese cuisine is characterised by its distinct flavours of sweet, sour and mildly spicy. Thanks to growing demand, there are now a number of places where you can satisfy your Burmese cravings.

Inle Myanmar

Inle Myanmar takes pride in serving authentic Myanmar cuisine that has been lovingly prepared according to treasured family recipes, with the inspiration drawn from Inle Lake.

Both newcomers and fans love the Mohinga and Hpa Luda ‘rose scented’ dessert. No wonder it’s one of the most famous Burmese eateries in Singapore.

Loi Nine Myanmar Cuisine

Taste authentic Shan cuisine here, an ethnic minority indigenous to Myanmar. Don’t miss the Shan potato rice that has a soft texture and comes with a killer tomato-based minced meat sauce.

Warm tofu with rice noodles served with hot and sweet savoury tofu cream makes a great comfort food, especially on a rainy day.

Mandalay Style

Mandalay Style sits humbly in an old basement of a mall. Its low tables and chairs remind us of an archaic Burmese teahouse.
This place specialises in food from Mandalay.

Mandalay Mee Shay is a must-try, as the translucent, gluey sauce complements the white thick bee hoon really well.

Ye Yint Café

This little café does not succumb to the trend of serving exotic and ostentatious dishes to the adventurous foodies. Instead, Ye Yint offers a modest, original variety of delicacies at steal prices.

Sip the rich Burmese milk tea and experience the after-work life of Burmese tradition.
