The use of different species is also evident and the infusion of herbs that are locally grown. As Myanmar has been a closed region for a long time, the flavors and dishes you will savor here will have a predominance of local flavors unlike other countries where the effects of global tourism has led to infusion of global cuisine taste and flavors in local dishes and online wine.
