Exceptionally tasty, western veggie menu - Edit

Nice layout. The food is really delicious, with excellent quality ingredients and very filling portions. Friendly welcome by local and international team. It's not easy to find. You need to go about 150 meters down a very small alley, which is diagonally across the street from the Park Royal Hotel.

Pros: great quality, interesting menu

Cons: a bit expensive, but still good value

Please be Critical Consumers - Edit

This seems to be the only place in Yangon where you can get western vegan food (e.g. veg burger), so if that's what you're after, this is the place. The food however, is average, the portions are small, and most dishes are in the 8-10$ range. If you get a drink or anything more than just a main, you'll be spending about 15$. While travelling, we try to be supportive of locals bringing accessible (which includes being affordable by the standards of average wage in the area) vegan food to the local scene, and a white man bringing overpriced western vegan food catered towards tourists doesn't sit so well with us. Please remember that in Myanmar you are really in a heaven for Indian and Nepalese food which is often vegan. In Yangon, there are even a few strictly vegetarian Indian/Nepalese restaurants here where most items are vegan. These restaurants are much cheaper and much more authentic for your Burmese experience.

Tammi555 20 Sep 2017 - We're very sorry you were not 100% happy with your visit to Nourish.

Our "average" food is thankfully loved by many but we are continuously trying to improve recipes.

The most expensive item on our menu is actually $7.40, most coming in at under $6.

However, we have never claimed to be providing cheap local cuisine. We provide healthy international food for locals (who deserve to have more vegan choices than Asian only) and foreigners (those living here and those travelling through). To do this we need to use certain ingredients which are more expensive than the ingredients found in local cuisine. However, we try to source as much as possible from Myanmar, to support the local economy, we also pay our taxes and employ, train and support local staff. Our margins are actually less than a local restaurant so your term "overpriced" is obviously relative.

Economies grow because of small to medium business enterprises, whoever they cater for.

The vegan movement grows because of an increasing availability of various vegan foods, giving all consumers more choice.

We're not sure how Indian and Nepalese restaurants give you a "much more authentic Burmese experience" than any other style of food on offer in the city but we fully support all the other vegan options in Yangon and encourage visiting vegans to try them all. Please remember to be sure to try actual Burmese vegan food too!

Lastly, we strongly oppose your racist and sexist terminology. Nourish is owned by 4 people and we are not all white and not all men!

Salimos encantadas y con barriguita llena. - Edit

Muy agradable este local, la carta muy interesante. Me pareció caro para precios de Myanmar la verdad, otra cosa que no aprecie es que los Bowls ya están preparados y no sabes de cuánto tiempo, mis hojas verdes estaban mustias y el brillo se pierde. El wrap ídem, ya están preparados a mi me gusta se haga al momento. Mi hija pidió la hamburguesa y si la hicieron al instante.
Los postres diferentes versiones customizadas de una tarta de zanahorias por ejemplo.
Agradable para pasar buen rato y amortizar el gasto.
Solo vegetariano y vegano.

Pros: Local acogedor, carta

Cons: precio, tienen Bowl y wrap ya preparados no sabes de cuand, Caro

Delicious and nourishing vegan food! - Edit

Nourish Cafe offers a variety of delicious vegan food, including a selection of creative options that cannot be found anywhere else in Yangon.

My favorite is the Naked Burger, which includes their famously yummy veggie burger atop a bed of fresh salad. I also LOVE all of the Smoothie Bowls. The raw cacao version is a chocolate-lover's paradise, made with homemade coconut cashew milk, frozen bananas, raw cacao, a heaping handful of homemade chocolate granola, and fruit/nut toppings. I hear that they will also soon be expanding their menu to include yummy vegan baked goods! I can't wait to see what they create next.

Each of their menu items are perfect treats to compliment their wide selection of great quality yoga classes. I always feel satisfied leaving this wonderful community ambiance knowing that I've just nourished my body as well as the planet by making these scrumptious and sustainable food choices.

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Great yoga classes, Wonderful community atmosphere

Lovely atmosphere, and great vegan food - Edit

Nourish became a bit of a haunt for me whilst in Yangon. The food is amazing, especially the breakfasts and the burger, and it's a lovely place to sit and relax. The staff were lovely, and their iced lattes were a lifesaver on humid Yangon days! Well worth a visit.

so happy to find healthy food in Yangon - Edit

The second day after I arrived in Yangon I went to Nourish, which was def the right choice. The food here is healthy, clean and delicious, and the cafe itself has a nice ambience. I've experienced how greasy and salty Burmese food is being able to eat healthy food here is a huge relief. I love the burger, the sourdough, acai smoothie and chocolate chia pudding!

Pros: food , atmosphere

Indeed an Oasis - Edit

Wonderful relaxing refuge from bustling Yangon.
Best vegan burger in town and I dare say I have ever had. Other items on the menu are equally delicious offering interesting flavours and the desserts are not too me missed.
The Yoga studio next to it has fantastic classes ranging from relaxing yin to spicy 2h vinyasa fun.
Overall a gift to this city.

Pros: Nice music, Yoga, Informal

Vegan oasis - Edit

Cozy, relaxing, and peaceful interior decor. The food is absolutely amazing and is the first Western style Vegan cafe in Yangon. All their menu items are vegan except for two desserts, one contains honey and the other is yogurt.

The handmade vegan Burger patty was delicious. Mix of beans and various seeds it wasn't dry at all. loved the seasoning used in the patty. highly recommended for fellow vegans in Yangon.

Pros: lots of vegan options for main dishes and desserts

Oasis in the heart of Yangon - Edit

I couldn't be any happier about this find! I went for the first time on their opening day and have since returned almost daily. It's a true oasis for vegans, vegetarians and everyone who loves healthy fresh food. I'm crazy about their wrap (omg, the home-made vegan pesto!), the burger and all the dips, not to mention the breakfast bowls and the chia cacao pods -this place is turning me into a total glutton ;-) ! Heavenly, certainly can't get any of those things anywhere else in town! Also am a big fan of the space itself which feels like a breath of fresh air in the loud crazy Yangon environment. It's calm, cosy, super green (literally, there's plants everywhere) and the staff is pure gold. I also like that the Cafe is attached to a yoga studio which ads to the nice vibe. It's also a great oasis to just read or work for a while, while sampling some food and sipping a soy latte (to my knowledge the only town that serves up a non dairy latte!) The chef is vegan herself and super knowledgeable on all matters vegan, and how to be a vegan athlete. I personally can't recommend this place enough, and can't wait to try all of their menu!

Pros: Delicious healthy food , Super nice relaxed vibe , Friendly and knowledgeable staff
