I’ve been wondering if I should get into this, but I’m finally lifting the ban. That is Yangon food report series.
As in the Manila food report, I will be examining from one end to the other the restraunts that seem to suit the Japanese palate.
Don’t come to Myanmar for tourism and eat Japanese food! You may say that I should report on Myanmar cuisine, but I would like to write an article in anticipation of the need for information on local Japanese food as Japanese companies move into the country in the future.

Ordering an omakase sushi set at a Japanese restaurant in Yangon.
What is the level of Japanese food at a Japanese restaurant abroad? You can find that out by eating the restaurant’s finest class of food.
I ordered the Sushi Moriawase for 9,500 kyat. Except for the egg on top of the omelet and the nori wrapped around the shrimp, at a glance, it is comparable to the Japanese version.
Also, it didn’t take too long for my order to come out.
I started with my favorite, unagi. The taste is quite good. It’s similar to the sushi I had at Vikings in Manila.
Also, as you can see in the picture, the amount of rice is still a bit small. It seems that sushi in Southeast Asia tends to have a smaller amount of rice.

▽Manila’s all-you-can-eat sushi is also quite good▽
It didn’t fill me up, but it was a good eighth of an ounce.
The sales tax of 5% was added to the 9,500 chats.
Japanese restaurants in Yangon have lunch menus.
I went to the restaurant around noon, so I asked, “Do you have a lunch menu?” I asked him if they had a lunch menu, and he said they did not, but then he showed me the lunch menu and pointed to the red box.
Oh, I see, lunch time is from 10:00 to 14:30. I interpreted that it must have been the staff who didn’t know they had a lunch menu earlier.
Again, the delicious sushi set is outstanding.
When I pointed to the delicious sushi set on their lunch menu and ordered it, the emphasis was on the days of the week, Monday through Friday, not the lunch hours of 10:00 to 14:30.
It turned out that what the waitress wanted to say was, “We don’t have a lunch menu because it’s Sunday.”
