For me, that meant Sichuan Dou Hua, a Chinese traditional restaurant on the first floor of Yangon’s Parkroyal Hotel. It offers the daily dishes of Sichuan Province in southwestern China, which is as cool and damp as its food is hot and spicy.

Golden Pho http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/15237-golden-pho.html http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/15237-golden-pho.html With the exception of a growing number of “exotic” street vendors – who caused outrage recently when it was discovered they were serving dog meat to labourers on a nearby construction site – Vietnamese food has yet to take off in the city. That could be about to change, however, with a trickle of new Vietnamese restaurant openings doing a roaring trade – particularly among expats thankful for their fresh, healthy offerings and minimal use of oil.

Of course, supper clubs have enjoyed a revival with a slightly different meaning of late, becoming known as “underground” or “secret” restaurants in more happening parts of the world.

Fetishize this: When ‘food adventuring’ trivialises cultures http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/14895-fetishize-this-when-food-adventuring-trivialises-cultures.html http://www.mmtimes.com/index.php/lifestyle/dining/14895-fetishize-this-when-food-adventuring-trivialises-cultures.html Food trends change with alarming speed. Often, they’re prompted by the foodie elite, influential restaurateurs or even pop culture. And while an emphasis seems to be placed on specific ingredients, it is also common for the cuisine of an entire culture or nation to be deemed trendy.
