editor’s note
Hello MYANMOREans
We are coming into the super hot season.
A few announcements:
Port Autonomy is back, bigger and better, at a new venue.
Belmond Governor’s Residence popular Taco Night is now on every
Thursday.
Carnival of Venice at L'Opera on 28th March is now cancelled.
If you’ve notice, there are are increasing numbers of business-related events in the past months, which goes to show how this city is
slowly but surely, gearing up towards change and improvements. I
see this as a definite thumbs up!
Oh yes, the heat is on.

IRRAWADDY PIZZA CO
ITALIAN TASTES IN THANLYIN
BY MAX TOOMEY
WHAT IT IS
Suave and sophisticated, the Irrawaddy Pizza Company aims to
bring another level to the ever-increasing number of Italian restaurants in town. With a pizza oven that joins the high-tech to the traditional and a chef that clearly loves Italian food it’s pretty hard to
go wrong. The flavours clean and fresh, the surrounding relaxed.
ATMOSPHERE
The soft lighting of trendy round lamps, the Italian cars on the wall
and the soft music make walking into the Irrawaddy Pizza company
like walking out of Myanmar. When it comes to seating you have the
choice of sleek, low chairs imported straight out of a Bond villain’s
office, intimate tables or booths for larger groups.
RECOMMENDATION
The bruschetta, decorated with drizzled balsamic, ripped basil and
shavings of parmesan, was seasoned with just the right amount of
garlic, although the bread could have been a little crispier.
The caprese salad, made with locally sourced, homemade mozzarella was equally well presented and flavoursome. It’s not every day
that you find buffalo mozzarella in Myanmar.
The wonderfully crispy pizza goes down very nicely with a glass of
the reasonably priced house white. With quite a few pizza places in
town the addition of grape to the chorizo pizza was commendably
different. The chorizo itself was marvellous: peppery and just a little
spicy it could have easily been eaten on its own.
It’s with the pasta, however, that this place really came into its own.
The gnocchi in a pesto sauce was truly excellent. The sauce was
rich and creamy, the texture of the lightly pan fried gnocchi was
close to perfect.
LAST THOUGHTS
The only (heart breaking) flaw is that whilst walking in might be like
walking out of Myanmar, driving there feels a lot like driving out of
Yangon. If you’re in the neighbourhood, live in Star City or are there
to make use of the pitch then you’ve got an excellent spot to drop
in on.
Star City, Building A5, Kyaii Khauk Pagoda Rd,
Thanlyin Township | Tel: 05623150
Opens daily 11am – 3pm & 5pm – 11pm
