Local dishes with a luxury twist
Sitting pretty in what was once the Bank of India building, the recently opened Pandsodan is a modern Burmese brasserie that takes a contemporary approach to some of the country’s most-loved dishes. The menu includes a modern take on mohinga, a traditional fish and rice noodle soup that’s served with fragrant condiments, seven salads (including the classic pickled tea leaf variety) and Shan-style noodles with minced chicken or pork stewed in tomatoes. There’s also a nod to Myanmar’s Asian neighbours with the inclusion of satay sticks and biryani. From the glittering gold-leaf ceiling to the green-tiled walls and marble floors, it’s a sophisticated addition to the city’s dining scene.
