Myanmar: Best hipster cafe in Yangon @ Rangoon Teahouse


Myanmar has been in the news for a host of different reasons, but one thing is for sure, it is quickly picking up as a tourist attraction. It is getting busy, so you need to go and see these few places before it explodes! Yangon is a city in crazy development. Burmese people that were aboard come back to invest in the country and the number of expats is growing every month, making the demand higher and higher with time. There are not a lot of nice cafes & restaurants just yet, but for this 24h in Yangon, we had friends showing us around the best spots to be at!

Meet Rangoon Teahouse. It has a beautiful decor and most importantly, the food is I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E. I even forgot to snap some pics of all the food we got. I recommend you to get the pork buns & the chocolate samosas with ice cream. The chocolate samosas were easily the best thing Mitch & I ever had in our lives hands down.

It can be tricky to find Rangoon Teahouse; it’s on the 2nd floor in a small old building. Once you get to 77-79 Pansodan St, it’s between Mahabandoola and Merchant Rd, Above a T-Land Mobile shop and to the right of May Pharmacy Yangon. Can’t get lost after this description!


// Quand je voyage, mon bonheur est de me retrouver dans les beaux restaurants, cafés et boutiques. Je pense que secrètement, je suis une designer intérieur! Yangon est une ville en plein développement. Plusieurs Birmans ayant vécus à l’étranger reviennent au pays pour y amener du nouveau, mais également beaucoup d’expatriés qui y sont pour le boulot, créant ainsi une demande pour de nouveaux établissements. Pour être honnête, il n’y a pas beaucoup de bon restaurants et cafés…encore. En 24h, nous avons tout vu!

Tout d’abord, je vous présente Rangoon Teahouse.
Un endroit formidable. La bouffe était à couper le souffle! J’ai même oublié de prendre quelques plats en photo. Je vous recommande les pork buns et les samosas au chocolat (OH MY GOD!!).

Sur la table il y avait une petite annonce du Chai Beer, contenant du thé chai, de la bière Myanmar et du dry gin. Il était 9h du matin, j’ai tout de même succombé et commandé le drink. Il s’est avéré pas aussi bon que je l’imaginais, mais lorsque la glace a fondu, c’était délicieux haha!
