Various types of rice were displayed in the storefront

The staple food in Myanmar is rice. And Burmese people eat rice with some side dishes. The style is similar to the Japanese traditional style. Yet Burmese cuisine is much spicy and much greasy than Japanese cuisine. Anyway, rice was crucial for meals.

Walking around the Thanlyin Myo Ma Market, I found a rice shop. Many metal containers were placed in the storefront. And every container filled with rice. Apparently, various types were sold here. The names of the type were written on the tag stuck in rice. Yet I didn't understand what was written because they were written in Burmese. I thought both premium rice and low-end rice might be sold. The only thing I could understand was that the variety of rice here was different from which sold in Japan.
