Burmese street food vendors used to serve mohinga as a breakfast staple but now the seafood soup is available all day long and is considered by some to be the national dish.
This meal is an ode to the rice noodle soup (but with the addition of flavorful crab) and the other timeless Burmese favorite, fermented tea leaf salad. There will also be a refreshing dessert to end the evening.
