Bagan is one of the most famous tourists destination in Myanmar because of the thousands of temples and stupa that can be found in this town. Alongside with the growth of tourism comes the boom of tourism related businesses such as hotels, guesthouses, travel agencies and of course restaurants.
I’ve had a chance to try different restaurants during my few days of stay in Bagan and one of those restaurants that I tried was Kaung Set Aung.
Kaung Set Aung is a newly opened restaurant run by a local family in Bagan. The menu consists mainly of local food which include meat, fish and vegetable dishes. One particular dish caught my eye and immediately ordered it.
I ordered stir fried vegetables with crab meat and chicken curry.
The service was quite fast and in just a few minutes, the dishes were already served. Of course, no meal with be complete without rice so we also ordered rice to go along with the vegetables and chicken curry.
The stir fried vegetable tasted great as expected though quite weird since I was expecting it to be a little salty and savory but it was kind of sweet and savory instead. Nevertheless I still enjoyed it since I like crab very much. The chicken curry tasted ok just like any other chicken curry you can order in Southeast Asia.
After dinner, we stayed for a few more minutes and ordered some fruit shakes. The family was very attentive to their customers and you can feel their excitement in their new business. I truly hope that they become more successful in the coming years to come.
