Mohinga in Myanmar

“Mohinga” is rice noodle and fish soup commonly served for breakfast in Myanmar. It is considered by many to be the national dish of Myanmar. Over a three week period, a traveler begins to appreciate hot soup in the morning as it prepares the body for the humidity and precipitation to come. Below is a glimpse into everyday life in Myanmar.
