We discovered the new-born place when we have been on our way to discover new place in Yangon. And we found “itea”. When we entered into the restaurant, our eyes immediately attracted by their cool, strong lead decoration of colors and textures. The interior design is not only for youth but also nice environment for business meetings or hang out with family. It is a really multifunctional place. The space is intimate and cozy, decorating with wooden boxes as well as graffiti-art all over on the wall with fancy food quotes hanging to complete the perfection.
It is like beautiful photo booth comes alive to create the best memories in there. We also took beautiful photos and selfies. Besides all of these elements, “itea” is also decorated with artificial plants highlighting the real naturalism to bring people closer to an impressive green environment. “itea” has two floors and both give a proper beauty of a dining style setting, comfortable and wide enough for customers.
Now the time for our prime interest: food. We started with Kim Pot which is signature dish in “itea”. Do you know what Kim Pot is? Kim Pot is a combination of hot pot and barbecue and a good choice who love to eat both hot pot and barbecue. Their soup type is chicken broth based and taste is really nice, you can feel the components are used with perfect dosage. You can choose combo options such as chicken, pork, beef and seafood. Each set is enough to eat even for two persons.
All meat, vegetables and ingredients are really fresh and you will be satisfied after you have tried them. They provide butter, pork oil and cooking oil to grill the meat with. Without some sauce it cannot be complete the feeling to eat hot pot and barbecue, right? At “itea”, the sauce taste is sweet and spicy which is perfectly matching to eat with hot pot or barbecue.We grilled meat, boiled the vegetables and we were waiting a little bit to make sure all tastes will be dominant. Barbecue was really delicious with its smoky flavor and hot pot taste became delightful after combing with fresh vegetables. We are sure that this is a kind of food that you will love to eat again and again.
The restaurant also offers boiling pot which is a special menu for single. There are 3 different types of soup; original flavor, Tom Yum and Marlar. We tried Tom Yum boiling pot which was consist of glass rice noodle, enoki mushrooms, sausages and seafood. It was hot and spicy and we could not stop eating because it was really highly pleasant to the taste. The combination of its ingredients gave us a really nice experience at “itea”.

Various selections are also available. If you feel to eat some international food like a burger, pasta or pizza the chef can easily make it for you.
As the name of “itea” reflecting on a tea-house it has over 40 drinks such as milk tea, frost, fruit teas, smoothie, pulpy, hot brewed teas, tease (without tea), coffee and sinker to add in tea. Milk tea are the most popular one and each different milk tea has unique taste. They have four flavours in milk teas such as Okinawa (black sugar flavor), Hokkaido (butter toffee caramel flavor), Jasmine (floral & creamy flavor) and Winter melon (premium milk tea with a hint of winter melon flavor). We tried Hokkaido with pearl toppings. It has really pleasant smell and it can refresh you in a second. Love it!
