Myanmar for Foodies
Our top dining experience in Yangon. Le Planteur, run by Michelin starred chef Eric Eppisser offers innovative French-Indochine inspired cuisine.
Set in a colonial-era mansion overlooking a sprawling lawn onto a lake, the setting is simply enchanting. The dedication to excellent service and regular updates to the menu have secured Le Planteur’s reputation as the most distinguished restaurant in Myanmar. Aung San Suu Kyi even decided to spend her birthday there.
We can arrange for you to be collected by one of Le Planteur's vintage motors to arrive at the restaurant in style. The menu includes Firewood grilled lobster tail with cashew nut butter and sweet pepper, Fried fillet of grouper with a mild curry crust, lily flower stem fricassee & kaffir lime flavoured vegetables and a prime rack of lamb baked with green tea sauce sampling of Myanmar salads.
The wine list is surprisingly comprehensive, with French wines, divided by region, dominating the menu. Starting from $26 per bottle up to $855 per bottle with a couple of finer wines such as Chateau Angelus 2010 and Chateau la Mission Haut Brion 2000 available upon request.
The ambience and interior decor is charming, the perfect mix of Asian Style with some French finesse and detail – we particularly like the elephant heads faucets in the women's bathroom!
Why we love it: Some of the best fine dining in Myanmar, magical garden setting and faultless service.
