Trying Burmese Food For The First Time | Mae Hong Son, Thailand

Burmese Green Tea Salad, my favorite Burmese food so far

In northern Thailand, there are a lot of Burmese refugees who create their own communities and spread their cultures, so you can find many Burmese restaurant around. Before I came to northern Thailand, I had never had Burmese food before, but now I love it. Although it is not Thai food, it’s now a part of culture in Thailand, and you will find so many of them in cities up north.

Vegetable curry

The restaurant was right beside the pond in the city. There was a wooden sign in front so it was easy to find. We picked Burmese Green Tea Salad as recommended on the Lonely Planet, and Vegetable curry. Burmese Salad tastes both sweet and salty with peanuts, tomatoes and garlic, and I really liked the combination. Vegetable curry was mild but the taste of all the vegetables soaked in the soup, and it goes so well with rice with mixed grains.

Overall my first experience of Burmese food turned out great. I will definitely try more in the future.

  1. I like your “About Me” section. My husband and I finished our vacation in Italy. We enjoyed our trip so much, instead of photo dumping on Facebook we write everything in blog form and give it to people in small pieces. It’s more insightful.
