Before departure to Myanmar, I decided I would like to try their traditional local dishes mentioned above. The first day, we tried their laphet - tea leaf and ginger salad during our dinner in Padonmar Restaurant at Kha-Yae-Bin Road Dagon Township. Padonmar Restaurant (Lotus flower in Myanmar Language) is one of the fine dinning restaurant in Yangon and it is a conversion of a 50 year old residential house.
The elegant old house with colour paper lanterns and wood cravings decoration in the inner of the building provide you a romantic and comfortable dinner. The price is reasonable, we have ordered Tom Yam Koong Thai soup with prawn, Prawn dish, laphet, rice, beer and fruit juice and it cost 19,640 kayts or $23.
