Since we flew out so early in the morning we didn’t get a chance to get breakfast so the first thing we did after leaving Yangon Airport was to request to go to a restaurant.  The tour guide suggested “House of Memories” – an over 100-year-old colonial and historic Villa that included an office used by the great Aung San—Burma’s independence hero and father of opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.  This was a great choice – the food was very good.

House of Memories Restaurant / Aung San Office (on Second Floor)

The House of Memories is a large colonial-style wooden villa that was originally the family home of Dina and Caroline Nath and was known as the “Nath Villa”. Dina was the chairman of the Indian Independence Army for Burma and was active in the anti-colonial movement in Burma. Because of this, he allowed Aung San to have his first personal office on the second floor of the villa and for a short time (in 1941) was considered to be the Burmese Independence Army (BIA) headquarters.

The Burma Independence Army (BIA) was a collaborationist and revolutionary army that fought for the end of British rule in Burma by assisting the Japanese in their conquest of the country in 1942 during World War II. (Wikipedia)

Our Lunch

We found the restaurant and atmosphere at House of Memories to be very good. All of the dishes we chose were very tasty (but a bit mild compared to our usual Thai food). We especially enjoyed the Pork Curry with Black Soybean Paste and Cauliflower Salad.
