It didn’t take long for Rangoon Tea House to become known as the place for refined Burmese cuisine in Yangon. Street foods such as fermented tea leaf salad, mohinga, mutton kebabs, fish curry, and yoghurt with jaggery are made using upmarket ingredients like local caviar and toasted pea flour. The tea menu offers more than 20 variations on the condensed/evaporated milk staple, and there’s a wall of souvenirs for sale (terracotta teapots, Shan cookbooks, and, yes, bottles of Sriracha). It’s no wonder why celebrity chef Michael Voltaggio filmed a segment for his Travel Channel show Breaking Borders here. A recent expansion nearly doubled the restaurant’s already ample floor space.
