Yangoon - Snack stall

Meeshay, (Burmese: pronounced: [míʃè]; also spelt Mee Shay, Mee Shei) is a Burmese dish of rice noodles mixed with meat sauce. It is a specialty of the Shan people of Eastern Myanmar. Regional variants exist but two main types, the normal meeshay and the Mandalay version, are the most popular.


The meat sauce is mainly made with pork and/or chicken. All forms of Meeshay may be accompanied by Mohnyin tjin (a popular Shan pickle made of mustard greens, carrots and other vegetables fermented in rice wine) and clear soup usually of chicken stock with spring onions. Another common side dish to meeshay is fried Burmese tofu fritters.
