I had the opportunity to sample nearly every single dish on the menu in a single sitting (I was beyond stuffed, but man was it ever worth it!) and found my new favorite...

Way Down Upon the Ayeyarwady River

Way Down Upon the Ayeyarwady River
Another crack-of-dawn morning for Dad, Nadine, Holly and me. After scarfing another quick buffet breakfast (I limited myself to a single plate this time), we flagged down a rusted-out taxicab with no shocks, cushioning or seatbelts but four working wheels and headed to the Yangon airport. Since Dad and...
