About A Chef's Tour
Myanmar food is a mystery to most. Fear not. If you join our daily Yangon food tour, you'll get to grips with the country's cuisine. The unique experience takes you on a whistle stop tour through the heart of the city delving into Little India and Chinatown along the way. Stop for Shan noodles, BBQ fish, old tea houses and much more.

Overview
Kick off from the central Mahabandoola Garden where your guide will take you to the first stop – grilled fish barbequed over hot charcoal and served with lime and tamarind dipping sauces. As you amble up through the backstreets of Old Yangon on your tour, you’ll dive into a famous noodle house famed for its authentic dishes from Shan province.  

You’ll start to see a marked difference in the dishes as you enter Yangon’s Little India. En route though the bustling neighborhood, you’ll make several stops to try hot, lightly spiced samosas, crisp dosas best dipped into a variety of pickles and curries and a famed Bengali sweet shop.  

Your next stop on our Yangon tour is Chinatown, a vibrant district with a fascinating history. It’s not short of places to eat, but not all are made equal. You’ll make stops at old Chinese bakeries, 3rd generation soup houses, a lively tea house for bao buns and springs runs and much more. End with cold Myanmar beer and barbecued skewers along the famed 19th street.  

*Sorry veggies, this one isn’t for you. We’re working on a meat-free Yangon tour which we hope to launch soon.

**Vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every Yangon food tour will be the same. Fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff.

Amazing food tour, got the chance to try a lot of new foods. My guide was very friendly and took his time with me. Also a big compliment to the organizer: I booked over GetYourGuide and I couldn't attend the original date, due food poison. They offered me to attend another day (and it was a solo tour as nobody else booked) even if by GetYourGuide policy it was a non refundable booking. 100% the right choice if you want to do a food tour in Yangon.

Relaxed amble around Yangon sampling many of the different dishes and cuisines on offer. Finished up in the infamous 19th Street for beer and kebabs 😃 I would recommend having a late breakfast or brunch as the tour starts @ 4pm and I was struggling to eat everything My guide Matthew was lovely, interesting to talk to and his English was really good.

We met Matthew our food guide in the park. What a great guy, charming, polite, funny and full of great info about Yangon and Myanmar (Burma). Not only the food but history as well - he was full of knowledge and spoke perfect English. We sampled all manner of delicious foods during the easy walk through various parts of Yangon city. Completey safe and very friendly areas. From Burmese to Indian to Chinese foods and finishing up in a street full of bars with street seating and barbequed food. I, my partner and my mother both enjoyed the tour massively - Thank you Matthew! If you do just one thing on your visit to Yangon then make sure it's this Yangon food tour!

Everything was arranged through a simple email in an efficient way. It was a super interesting experience to taste food from Burmese tradition which is also at the interface between Indian and Chinese. Through the tour we could also explore some areas of the city and discuss with our guide Matthew about Burmese culture and traditions. He is super fluent in English and friendly. Food was good, 8 stops planned and choices “western safe”. Strongly suggested in Yangon.
