Pork on Stick (Wet-Thar-Dote-Htoe)

This is a favorite Burmese food. Originally from Chinese community in Myanmar, it has become a popular food in cities. Called “Wet-Thar-Dote-Htoe”, it literally means “Pork on Stick”. Various parts of the pig are cooked with soy-bean sauce and seasoning. The parts include carious internal organs like intestine, liver, kidney, spleen, heart, lungs, tongue as well as meat, skin and cartilage. They are then cut into small pieces, and put on tiny bamboo sticks and served. The vendor usually sells on the road side, with all the food served on a large metal pan with charcoal stove underneath. Customers sit around the pan and eat the food dipped in sauce. The meat is really delicious. If you want to try one, just walk in the streets of downtown Yangon. There are many shops there.

This is an update of the previous post I posted last year. I get the photo only now so I added the photo of wet-ther-dote-htoe and posted again.

Latest News from Home

Well, exactly one month after Cyclone Nargis hit Yangon, the electricity is coming back. That is a great news. But the land line phone is still down, at least to my home. The situation is returning to normal. Prices are up but stabilizing now. And because of extensive repair works, both private and public, the laborers are getting many jobs. My father told me that it is sometimes difficult to find workers to do repair jobs.
