Postcards from Yangon, Myanmar

We started our morning with a visit to the massive Reclining Buddha:

Which houses the reclining stray dogs:

Then a trip through Downtown Yangon:

And then lunch!

Our first taste of Myanmar cuisine was at Padonmar Restaurant, and included a divine Inle Tofu Curry.

Tofu here is made from chickpea flour and has a gelatinous texture. I have been meaning to try my hand at making a chickpea-based tofu since Pemma told me about it, so I was so glad to get to try it today. This was the fresh version of the tofu, cooked in a tomato sauce:
And a smoky Grilled Aubergine Salad, which still had all the eggplant seeds, along with toasted sesame seeds and a mountain of crispy garlic slices.

We enjoyed the dishes along with coconut rice and veggie pickle. Mmmmm.

And then a trip through Bogyoke Market (formerly known as Scott Market) — to see fresh plums with jaggery and spices:

And all the fruit vendors:

Yangon, I’m in love with you.

    Thank you for sharing another incredible journey, you take us to places that I can no longer go, but through you I get to enjoy all the incredible tastes and sights of your experiences. It is amazing how just looking at the pictures of the dishes, or the fruit in the market, I feel I can smell and taste them. Thank you for sharing your adventures.
