Okay, so this is not the best photo, but it’s the only one I’ve got (that doesn’t have either myself or my friends in it — and I don’t want to be identified).
Onyx was another one of my favourite places in Yangon. It is owned by a super cool Korean guy named Martin. The decor in Onyx is pretty sparse, but that’s actually what makes it work so well. The low lighting, bare brick walls and the simple tables and tablecloths make you feel right at home. The food here is delicious, and on top of that, the prices at Onyx are some of the most reasonable in Yangon. When I first moved to Burma, a steak at Onyx would set you back only 4000 Kyats. These days, the cost of a steak here has gone up to 6000 Kyats, but still, that’s hardly going to break the bank, even if you are on a budget. A glass of house red will set you back a mere 3000 Kyats, and an entire bottle is only 10,000 Kyats. Are you starting to see why this was one of my favourite places in Yangon? 😉
