Eat like a Yangon scenester

Tea Leaf Salad

Burmese food – particularly of the upscale and carefully curated variety – is not exactly abundant in Hong Kong, so make your way to Sai Ying Pun to get a taste. From now till the end of June, pop-up restaurant The Pansodan is serving dishes like tea leaf salad and mohinga (a Burmese noodle dish) against a backdrop of hand-painted wallpaper and rattan furniture.  It is the brainchild of Ivan Pun, a young Burmese entrepreneur credited for the revitalisation of downtown Yangon – he’s behind a few of the city’s hip dining spots, including the original Pansodan.
