Tonight enjoy a special dinner under the stars at Padonmar Restaurant—one of the finest Myanmar cuisine restaurants in Yangon. Set on the grounds of a 50 year old colonial residence and surrounded by beautiful gardens adorned with colorful lanterns and hanging lights- Padonmar offers a relaxed and elegant ambiance.

The multi-course meal showcases the country’s most famed dishes, bursting with authentic home-cooked flavor. In Myanmar, dishes are served simultaneously. A typical meal includes steamed rice as the main dish and a number of side dishes called ‘hin’. These may include: a curried fish, beef or poultry, a light soup called ‘hin gyo’, and sour, fresh, or boiled vegetables finished with seasonal fruits.

While you dine, enjoy a specialty cultural variety show. Myanmar dancing is essentially postures in movement of the feet, hip, head and hands. It is said that there are about 2,000 difference ways of dancing in a Myanmar performance. They stem from 13 movements of the head, 28 kinds of expressions with the eyes, nine movements of the neck, 24 movements of the single hands, 24 movements of both hands combined, 38 kinds of leg movement, five acrobatic poses, eight ways of turning the body, and 10 styles of walking! After this evening’s spectacular show, it will be your chance to learn Myanmar dance moves with the help of professional dancers.

“This was certainly like stepping into paradise. The food was fantastic and the dances were beautiful.” – Lindsey B. Spring 2016 Student Voyager
