I believe as a volunteer it is important to get into your host country’s culture – starting with the food!
Yesterday we did an informative and fun 3.5hr Yangon trishaw street food tour.
It was a delightful exploration of foodie places downtown… starting with the famous yummy mohinga fish soup, followed by equally ubiquitous fermented tea leaf salad.
We travelled by foot and trishaw, in and out of traffic and backstreets, to discover key ingredients and taste a multitude of dishes with our passionate local foodie expert Khattar.
Six restaurants later with a full belly of tasty morsels washed down with green tea, beer and a yoghurt lassi we headed for home having a deeper insight into this city’s cuisine and culture.
If you have a sensitive tummy this may not be for you… and always remember to drink bottled water.
One restaurant was some tiny chairs and tables squeezed between two cars. Loved it all!
