Golden Crab: Savoury Seafood BY SOFIA RAINERI Tucked away in the Tamwe area of the city amongst little streets, Golden Crab is a hidden gem and it’s certainly worth the trek. The décor has little to be desired but do not let this fool you, predominantly frequented by local costumers this restaurant serves some of the best seafood I have had in Yangon at a reasonable price. I highly recommend you order the crab. I opted for the Curry Crab (10,000 MMK) and was presented with a very big crab, smothered in curry sauce. The curry sauce is not spicy, but it is flavourful and complements well the sweet, juicy crabmeat. I was recommended the Jungle Thin Soup (5,500 MMK small / 8,000MMK large). I could smell the lemongrass as soon as it was set on the table. As fragrant tasting as it smells, like most Thai soups it has a bright and sour flavour. It came with various vegetables such as small Thai eggplants which pleasantly burst in your mouth, as well as king prawns, whose flavour might be slightly overpowered by the soup, but nonetheless make a good addition to the dish. The Fish with Red Chilli Paste (8,000MMK), a whole fried fish, was entirely covered with a generous amount of chilli sauce. The chilli was not unbearable, and added a pleasant kick to the dish. The fish was fried perfectly, and the white meat was tender and soft and not soggy with oil. The Shell BBQ (4,500MMK) is unmissable, and was unexpectedly one of the best dishes I was served. Each shell is covered with a red sauce, which was slightly sweet and smoky in flavour, an Asian twist to the familiar BBQ sauce. The little shells are perfect to scoop with your spoon and it is incredibly easy to eat an entire plate of them! Overall, Golden Crab serves generous portions of fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced seafood. They have a vast menu which offers various versions of different seafood, so you are spoiled for choice. A must go to for fish lovers!

new opening

Menzo: Fukuoka Style Ramen hits Yaw Min Gyi BY SOFIA RAINERI Just off Yaw Min Gyi St. and Bo Yar Nyunt Rd., Menzo Ramen makes a wonderful addition to the upcoming restaurant scene in the area. The design and layout of the venue is functional, no frills, clean and minimalistic. Strictly a no MSG restaurant, Menzo ramen prides itself in the selection of its fine ingredients. The meat is freshly brought every morning and even the salt is imported from Japan to achieve the perfect flavour balance in every dish. Although the ramen is a popular choice, the menu is extensive. They also offer Tsukemen (‘dipping ramen’ ---the noodles and other toppings are eaten after being dipped in a separate bowl of soup), and a big selection of Yakitori (grilled skewers). Menzo specialises in ramen from the Fukuoka region of Japan with variations of the Tonkotsu (pork bone broth) and Shoyu (soy broth) ramen. The Tonkotsu ramen broth is made by cooking the pork meat for 15 hours. We tried their three types of Tonkotsu ramen: classic Tonkotsu (white broth) pork bone broth which was creamy and flavourful without being too fatty, black broth Kuro Mayu (black sesame and garlic oil) my personal favourite. The broth had a slight smoky, nutty flavour and is light on the garlic. Last, Kara Tonkotsu (chilli ramen) is a red broth, in which the addition of chilli adds a fantastic kick to the broth. The noodle was perfectly cooked and had some bite to them. Although I loved all the various toppings, I was most surprised by the quality of the ajitama (marinated soft boiled egg), masterfully cooked to achieve the right texture, maintaining a perfectly runny yolk core. The Gyoza (3,500 MMK 5pcs) is homemade, slightly crunchy and the filling is juicy and well balanced. Overall, although newly opened, Menzo Ramen is already a popular dining choice. Perfect if you fancy slurping away at a bowl of delicious ramen or for getting your Yakitori fix at a fair price! Address: (19/A), Unit-15, Boyaryunt Street, Yaw Min Gyi, Dagon Township, Yangon. Phone : 01 11220052 Opening Hours: 11:00AM — 2:00PM, 5:30PM — 10:00PM
