Athletes competing in the 27th Southeast Asia Games in Nay Pyi Taw will be served the finest food Myanmar has to offer. U Khin Aung Htun, vice chairman of the Myanmar Restaurant Association, made the pledge at a press conference called to announce MRA’s selection as the caterer for the December event.
Vegetables from Shan State and halal meat from Yangon will be used in the traditional Myanmar snacks to be offered to the 3500 athletes who will take part in the games.
A press conference at Yangon’s at Sein Lan So Pyay Garden heard on September 7 that the ministries of sport and hotels and tourism had decided to award the tender for catering and housekeeping services to MRA.
“About 600 MRA staff will be on hand to serve the athletes,” association vice chairman U Nay Lin told The Myanmar Times.
“At the last SEA Games, in Indonesia, traditional snacks were served, and we will do the same.”
The food will rival that of a four-star hotel, he said. “The MRA is glad and proud to have been selected … We are looking forward to a great experience.”
