Vegan backpacker

This was the closest place to our hotel and though there were some poor reviews we gave it a try. The price was good overall about 1500k to 2500k per entree. Good portions, not real big. Lady understood vegetarian/vegan, menu had a veggie section (not huge) and the food was pretty good. It's hard to know if msg is being used sparingly or not in alot of these places. Had Kung Pao tofu and tofu pickled mustard curry. Both were tasty.

Update: went back for the second time on a different night. Staff still understood vegetarian/vegan, however, the food this night seemed off. The quality wasn't as consistent as before. Came after a dinner rush this time and it was just oily and almost flavorless. This place is clearly hit or miss, but they definitely seem to understand vegetarian which is a plus in a city you might be unfamiliar with and just need some inexpensive food.

Vegetarian options

Standard Burmese menu. Vegetarian options, and some vegan options, with ingredients listed. Medium size dish. Price okay. Staff seem uninterested.

Fresh noodles

The tomato salad was free of animal product. Wasn’t my favorite tomato salad in Myanmar. Used green tomatoes which was new experience. The mustard greens-tomato-tofu dish with a side of sticky noodles was so good. I asked a few times about “ta ta low” and said no egg, no fish sauce, no oyster sauce, no chicken broth. I would definitely get this dish again. Didn’t find too much else in this area and went a few times. Nice family story too.

Great Food, Lovely Service!

I ate tonight with my business partner. After hearing mass, we wanted to find a place nearby and this was listed in both Happy Cow (mediocre rating) and Trip Advisor (4.5 / 5 stars).

We decided to try our luck. The server was very friendly and spoke passable English. We explained that we were vegetarians and she pointed to us all the vegetarian options (quite a number).

We had the tea leaf salad, the tofu with red bean sauce, detox juice, vegetable fried rice. Everything was excellent. And the best thing - for all the food, we paid only about USD 9.

There was free tea and free Myanmar lessons. The son of the owner joined us in a spirited conversation (he was very smart and a scholar in a top American university) which made the meal more enjoyable.

Would have rated this a five except that Happy Cow understandably doesn't give 5 star ratings for restaurants that aren't completely vegetarian.

The only con was that the place didn't look very nice from the street level. But there was a nice, classy and airconditioned second floor dining area so ask to be seated. there. We will definitely come back and endorse.

Pros: Great vegetarian options, Very good price, Nice service

Cons: Doesn't look very nice from the street level

Sad: nice food, but they 🐔 you anyway! (Not-Vegan)

Was very happy at first: they seemingly understood our vegan / tofu only / no egg / no meat request, assured us big-time, and we trusted it with all the “30 Years experience” and TripAdvisor etc proudly displayed around etc. Free chicken soup comes out first (hello?), next veg fried noodles have a big hunk of chicken flesh in it, and we find more tiny pieces of meat in the tofu rice casserole. Obv. they don’t get vegan or even vegetarian, and use chicken stock for everything. Avoid if you’re veg(an).

Pros: nice setting

Cons: use chicken base in veg dishes

Nice restaurant but food may be plain

Nice restaurant, staff speaks English and menu is in English. Portions are quite big: I ordered a tomato salad (excellent) and the fried wheat noodles (very disappointing, I said I was vegetarian so I guess they did not add any sauce and it was really plain and dull, no flavor whatsoever) and I could barely finish everything. Meal is served with tea.
Would go back but would ask what is full of flavour even for vegetarians!

Pros: Staff speaks English and English detailed menu, Big portions

Cons: Some food is not tasty
