“Delightfully delicious!”
Review of Minn Lan - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Every dish was a delight!
Started off with one of the star dishes - Monthi (vermicelli in fish soup) which was delightfully light and flavourful.
Soft shell crab in lemongrass chilli sauce is a must for those who do not want the hassle of shelling crab.
Squid, seaweed and jellyfish came marinated in a super spicy sour sauce. I'm told that the level of spiciness can be moderated to your taste.
The chud-chud (snail) soup is to-die -for!
River fish in sour soup (similar to tom yam, but without the heat) is another must - sweet and tender, melt in your mouth!

All washed down with Myanmar beer! Yums!

Meal was finished off with the following desserts -

Montlatsaung - for those familiar with Singaporean/Malaysian dessert - this is similar to our cendol, except it's not green. :)
A delightful sweet soup - served cold with white rice flour 'worms' in palm sugar soup.

Mount Paung - for those familiar with Singaporean/Malaysian dessert - this is similar to our kueh tutu. Except that it's bigger!
Steamed rice cake with coarsely grated coconut that's cooked in palm sugar. YUMS!

There are a few Minn Lan restaurants in Yangon, and the one i went to was like forever to reach, though the taxi driver told me this one is closer. Lesson 1 - plan your trip as the traffic jam can get quite bad in the evenings. It took us more than an hour to get there although the driver said 30 mins.
Go....if you love seafood as this place is famous for seafood. Good variety and cooked in many ways. The Bamboo clams were gigantic in size but the crabs was small. Price is reasonably good and affordable.
the place was very packed when we got there but managed to get a seat fast, thanks to the staff.

How many ways can you cook fish....
This is very local and very very popular place. There are several across Yangon. They only sell beer, no wine or other spirits. The king prawns are great and huge, stir friend rice with seafood, and the seafood curry We usually order several dishes and share and are always amazed at how low cost the bill is. It can feel a bit fast food, but this is really good fast food. As many dishes are not expensive the you don't mind trying. Well worth a try.
