Blind Tiger: New Location, Same Feel Review from Myanmore.com
by Catherine Smith
WHAT IT IS
The Blind Tiger is a one-year veteran of the Yangon restaurant scene; after closing its original incarnation last year, it’s finally re-opened on Seik KanThar Road (at street level/near corner Merchant). Look for the large paw print outside! They are known for an innovative tapas menu and an expansive cocktail list.
Like the previous one, it aims for a exclusive, speakeasy-like environment. The interior is a similar layout and style as the original – an upstairs ‘balcony’ area overlooking a downstairs bar and dining area, plush and sumptuous décor, and walls hung with fabulous artworks (for sale). So lots of similarities (including the friendly and attentive staff) but somehow this incarnation feels more welcoming and relaxed.
