House of Memories Restaurant Yangon
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.
Our Lunch Menu Entrées
- Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk
- Pork Curry with Black Soybean Paste
- Steamed Coconut Rice
- Fried Bean Curd and Sprouts
- Cauliflower Salad
We found the restaurant and atmosphere at House of Memories to be very good. All the dishes we chose were very good (but a bit mild compared to our usual Thai food). We especially enjoyed the Pork Curry with Black Soybean Paste and Cauliflower Salad.
House of Memories Restaurant / Aung San Office (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.
