Popular small restaurant with variety of Kachin cuisine
Native Kachin food
The owner is originally from Myitkyina in Kachin State. She came to Yangon 13 years ago, first settled in Ahlone, then here in Sanchaung. All the traditional food at Grace Eden is homemade. “I import many ingredients from Kachin State” she says “steamed fish curry, papaya salad and ‘Mote Lat Htaung’ are the bestsellers here.”
A toddy for the road
Grace Eden is a great place to sample Kachin’s popular traditional drink, toddy palm wine. The white, sweet liquid with its distinct smell is not easy to come by in the city and Grace Eden is known for serving the real deal. They only sell on the premises to ensure quality.
Shwe Pyi Aye Street is known as Kachin Street. People come from all over the city to sample authentic Kachin fare. Other neighbourhood favourites include Kha Khu and Samlut sister.
