Cafe Dibar

The Burger:  Cheese and Vegetable Burger
The Toppings:  ketchup, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese
The Sides: those delicious French fries
The Price: 3,500 Kyats with tax (although, strictly speaking, it should only be 3,450 with tax, but as with most other people and services in Yangon, they’ve got no problem with rounding up by, in my view, quite a bit and overcharging you)

Additional Comments: When you order a vegetable burger, you sort of expect there to be something special about it.  You don’t expect it to be exactly the same as the other burgers on the menu only without a patty.  In fact, when you order a vegetable burger, don’t you normally expect a patty of some sort, whether it be a vegetable patty or a chickpea patty or a mushroom patty or I don’t know—something like that.

All of that isn’t to say that this burger wasn’t good.  It was quite tasty.  It’s just that, it’s more of a sandwich (with not terribly impressive fillings, at that) in a burger bun rather than an actual burger, and considering it’s only 500 kyats cheaper than the beef burger, as long as you’re not a vegetarian, there really is no reason not to go with that.  I cannot emphasise enough that the beef burger at Dibar is extremely good quality for what you get.


Le Mont Blanc

Le Mont Blanc Gordonblu Burger

The Burger: Chicken Gordonblu Burger
The Toppings:  lettuce, tomato, onion, LOTS of mayonnaise
The Sides: McDonalds-style French Fries
The Price: 5,500 Kyats

Additional Comments: Like the other burgers I’ve eaten at Le Mont Blanc, this burger was messy to eat.  But it was worth it.  I wasn’t sure what to expect from a cordon bleu burger that cost on 5,500 Kyats (in Burma, that’s actually a pretty cheap price for a burger, as you’ve probably already surmised if you’ve read more than a few posts on this blog).  But it turns out that, all on its own, considering we’re in Myanfuckingmar, it was a reasonable cordon bleu.  But that on top of it, it was placed into burger goodness.  Really, all in all, a very good chicken burger (not to mention extremely filling).

Le Mont Blanc makes a pretty passable cordon bleu in burger form.
