huckleberry | Jan 25, 201303:26 PM     4

my friends and i are headed to yangon, bagan and inle lake for the first time next month and have perused the very helpful posts by PhilD and annebkk, among others. below is a summary of places that are on my potential to-try list. any comments on these places or any recs for new restaurants would be greatly appreciated! we're trying to focus on authentic cuisine and avoid any spots that are too westernized or hotel affiliated.TIA!

YANGON - we will be staying at Chatrium and Traders
Feel Myanmar - lunch only; easy point and order and good authentic flavors
Taing Yain Thar (national restaurant) - newer, clean, good burmese flavors
Nan Htike - steamed fish, shan noodles, salads
Happy Cafe & Noodles - catfish noodle soup
any good tea shop recommendations for lunch (meeshay or shan khao sway?)

BAGAN - staying in Old Bagan
Green Elephant / Beach Bagan / Sunset Garden - good views, decent food
Queen Restaurant - good local food, avoid international items

INLE LAKE - staying in Villa Inle Resort
any specific recommendations here?
shan noodle spots?
