This restaurant is situated in Nyaung Shwe, the main town to be found on Lake Inle. It serves beer, whiskey, etc. With the main course they serve you the typical vegetable soup from the area. It is really delicious, and as an extra dish they serve you onion tomato chili sauce. It's easy to listen to rock music in the country and the waiter is a big fan of European football. They have beer on tap, which is cheaper. You can eat for between 2,000 and 4,000 kyat (1.6 to 3.2 €). The meat or fish dishes cost 2,500 kyat, accompanying rice 300 kyats (standard price). A pitcher of beer costs 550 kyat.
Eating is very cheap and good in Nyaung Shwe (on Inle Lake) with its best example being found in the food stalls in the market which is held on Mondays. You can share a table with visitors to the market or sellers and pay only 500 kyat (€ 0.4) for a plate of shan noodles with tofu, very tasty, the soup most common in the area, with compliments of the house.
Most of the restaurants in Nyaungshwe are intended for visitors, and many offer international cuisine, plus Bimana, Thai and Chinese food, but if you leave the main road, as in the case of this small restaurant with 5 tables, you have very good Burmese cuisine at a good price. Specifically the Inle lake fish served here in several ways are all delicious.
The Unique is a mid-range restaurant oriented to foreign visitors. It's in the main street and is one the most authentic. The restaurant is attached to the owner's home, and children walk around, but the place is very nice and the service good. The fish of the day from the lakes is highly recommended. It is prepared in the Burmese way, with lemon grass, spices and other herbs.
It's a shame that the original owner of the Black House, an Australian married to a Burmese, is gone and has left the place in the hands of people who can't even make a good coffee. They have one of those French filter coffee machines that make it too light for my taste. In any case, the view over the river makes up for everything, and the banana cake or chocolate cake are delicious.
Every great journey deserves a farewell dinner to remember the good times and laugh at all the problems that arose along the way but now do not matter at all. The Myanmar farewell dinner was in this place, a fairly new restaurant, we learned later, that had been half-opened by a Spaniard. Right on the bridge across the pier. If you do not raise your eyes, it's easy to go unnoticed. The interior is spacious and very nice but the best part is the terrace on the first floor overlooking the lake. It's a great place to spend hours and hours watching as the activity of the city gradually winds down and stops. The street lights are turned off, the boats stop sailing and everything stops. The food is fantastic and if you decide to pay the million that it's worth, try the Burmese wine made with grapes near the lake itself. It's interesting to say the least. Every journey has its whim. The good thing about Myanmar is that you can go out for less than 20 euros.
The most popular restaurant in Hsipaw has Chinese style large circular tables. The perfect place to meet friends after trekking or one of the tours that are done out of Hsipaw. The beer and food are cheap and the Burmese and Thai food comes in generous portions.
