Touched down in YANGON!22:32
woke up early to catch my morning flight, fell asleep in the plane even before it departed. That aside, i am finally meeting Ronan (my boyfie). We are in a long distance. it sucks to the max, trust me. The good note about this is, when it is finally time to meet again, you will forget all the waiting that you have had. everything is just worth it.
She managed to help me borrow a phone and quickly i hit Ronan's number. Luckily, he said he was already at the airport however trying to find a parking lot. Within a few minute, i saw his anxious look as he was approaching me at the arrival hall <3 It was my first time in Yangon however i feel indifferent. It could be because the overall environment is almost like Indonesia.
Firs stop, we had to go back to his house to put down my things and greet his parents. After that, we straight away head towards Junction Square (one of the shopping malls) to have our lunch. i was famished. We had our lunch at a restaurant called YKKO and it was AWESOME!!! So glad that my first meal was so tasty, and i was quite sure that this would be a good trip :)
Tadaaaa i present you the best dry beehoon in town!! it was super delicious!
You might be wondering why i had to include the pack of tissue with the receipt. It is not complementary, however they do provide normal facial tissue on each table (in fact, every where we go, tissue is provided even if it is road side stall). They don't have coins anymore as the value is too little. So the amount of change for 70-100 kyats, they will normally pay you with the pack of tissue.
YKKO is located at the top level of Junction square where all the restaurants are. If you happen to shop at Junction square, drop by for a lunch or dinner! i promise you it is worth it! YKKO is a chain restaurant, with 18 stores across the main cities in Myanmar. Started off with a super humble shop back in 1988, YKKO still maintain the standard of their food. Thumbs up!
So here are some pictures of the resaturants in Junction Square. I notice that the interior designs of each shop is quite nice and they really put in effort for it. Some of them could be because of the franchise, which is why the designs are good. However, some of their own cafe or restaurant did not lose out as well.
