Inle Lake Restaurants

Where and What to Eat in Inle Lake

Just like in other key tourist destinations in Myanmar, there is no shortage of dining establishments at Inle Lake and it may be a rural destination, but that does not mean the place is lacking when it comes to gastronomic delights.

The restaurants at Inle Lake can be divided into two categories. The first serve local Inthar dishes or Shan cuisine. Often, Chinese food is not far behind Shan dishes in a typical menu. The second category encompasses more western-style eateries that normally specialise in pancakes and pasta. The mix of western and local dishes makes for a more cosmopolitan approach.
