Burmese food is not for everyone as the sauces of some of the food are too heavy for some people and their stomach may not be able to take it. However, there seems to be a saving grace for anyone who cannot tolerate dense food and is going to Burma and that would be the Shan noodles! The most famous eatery in Yangon would be the 999 Shan Noodle House, I have friends going to Myanmar not liking any food consumed except for the Shan noodles at 999 Shan Noodle House, so of course I have to try this highly raved dish!

We went to 999 Shan Noodle House by taxi and it seems to be so well-known that the moment you mentioned this place, every taxi driver will know the direction to it. When we arrived at 999 Shan Noodle House, the place was filled to the brim so the servers brought us upstairs to be seated. Although the place was overwhelmingly full, the servers still made time to joke around while taking our order, assisting to help us take photos multiple times, checking with us if the food was good, as well as seeing us downstairs to make the payment.

Since I am the type of person who loves eating a variety of food but is easily full, I suggested sharing food with Ling Ling during my entire trip to Myanmar in February this year. We ended up sharing three dishes as shown in the first picture. One of the dish is Fried Bean Sprouts with Bean Curd as depicted in the second picture. We also shared the Wonton with Soup and the Sticky Shan Noodle as seen in the third & forth pictures and fifth & sixth pictures respectively. The food is relatively good. Although the noodles are quite oily, the soup was very soothing to the throat and the bean sprouts taste healthier. It is way more decent than many of the food we have tried at Burma. Restaurants that serve local food and are frequented by locals usually indicates that the food served is authentic. Although there were many backpackers and foreigners dining at the restaurant, my Buremese friend from Taunggyi, the capital of the Shan State, mentioned that the Shan noodles served at this place is authentic enough. True enough, this is one of the best Burmese food we had from Myanmar! Additionally, the total cost for three dishes is only 8,400 Myanmar kyats, which is equivalent to SGD$8.45. This is so cheap as compared to other developing countries. I hope that the next time I come back to Yangon, the price would not increase since Burma is opening its gates to foreigners.
