Rich, salty and satisfying. Mohinga is Myanmar’s national dish. Wherever you are, strangers may approach you on the street to tell you where to enjoy this dish. Essentially rice noodles in a seafood broth, Mohinga is flavoured with garlic, onions, lemongrass, banana tree stem, ginger and, often large, chunks of catfish. Though it’s most commonly eaten for breakfast, Mohinga is available throughout the day at cafés and restaurants nationwide.
I tried Mohinga in a street stall across from my hotel. It was delicious. Including a cup of Jasmine tea I paid 30 US-Cents for the whole meal!
