Is Food the Same Everywhere in Myanmar?

You’ll find certain staples — like noodles, daal, and pickled tea leaves — are fairly ubiquitous in Myanmar. There are a few differences among regions, largely influenced by bordering countries like India and Thailand.

The Rakhine State borders India, so this region’s cuisine has a stronger Indian influence. Of course, at Ngapali Beach you’ll find a greater prevalence of seafood, although fish is a popular choice everywhere in Myanmar. Big cities that get lots of visitors, like Yangon, will have Western options, which mostly come in the form of pizza restaurants.
