Recently Amber and Ben from Ayinsa based down in the south of Myanmar, Dawei, joined us on a evening food tour and here's what they had to say:
The best food tour in Yangon
August 10, 2017
Last time we were in Yangon, the Ayinsa team had the absolute pleasure of taking a street food tour with Saba Street Food Tours. Ayinsa has been on many food tours in cities all around the world and very few come close to our experience with Sa Ba.
If you're looking for an insight into the food and culture of Yangonites, then Sa Ba Street Food Tours are the way to go.
We kicked off the evening tour around 5.30pm with a quick snack on some lotus seeds (pictured). None of us had ever tried them before. Their flavour is subtle and tart all at the same time with a pleasant aftertaste that lingers. A great healthy snack for any time of day.
From their the tour was a whirlwind of flavours, tastes and experiences that we simply could not have managed on our own. And that's the point of paying for a tour right? To have an experience that you couldn't replicate yourself. Sa Ba delivers this in spades. They know every nook and cranny of Yangon. From the best mohinga stall in Yangon to where to find the most delectable Indian desserts in downtown. We sampled more than 15 different snacks and meals. Pro tip - make sure you arrive with an empty stomach.
The most insightful part of the tour was the huge amount of knowledge that the Sa Ba guys had on every aspect of food, street life, culture and history. They simply opened our eyes to a Yangon that we didn't know existed.
Any great tour exceeds expectations - and for us, it was the little things that took this tour from good to great.
