International flavors find new roosts in Nyaung Shwe, Inle Lake, as Myanmar continues to dish up prime places for adventure seekers to feast upon.
Nestled just off Yone Gyi Street near some of the touristy town’s most popular hotels is One Owl Mediterranean Bar and Grill. Offering an array of Mediterranean and fusion dishes you likely won’t even find in Yangon yet, One Owl Grill is a must-try restaurant when savoring Inle Lake.
Owls of all shapes and sizes and colors perch on walls of the tastefully decorated space. Its cozy interior spills outside through large open windows at night, leaving an entire street corner aglow. Almost as inviting as its open feel are two very clean, well-stocked restrooms.
Prices are extremely reasonable at One Owl Grill, especially for the authenticity provided. If you're hungering for something healthy while exploring the area, definitely go for the hummus with olive oil. 1,800 kyats gets you a good size bowl alongside a piece of freshly baked flatbread.

If you’re in the mood for a bite of familiarity under four bucks, enjoy the scrambled eggs and bacon on flatbread for breakfast starting at 7AM. Dinner options such as sautéed pork leg with vegetables, and fried rice with garlic aren’t only delicious, they’re filling, and both are available for less than two dollars each.
Staff members are friendly, helpful, and open to feedback and suggestions. It was fun to help determine the final ingredients of a signature cocktail at One Owl Grill. Let me know what you think of the Ngapali Sunset. My favorite drink was the Red Owl, however. Hints of tamarind, strawberry, and lime combined in a beery brew makes for a very refreshing swig or three after a long day of boating and biking around Inle Lake.
