Out for a duck!

Fried bone with some meat is how I'd describe the protein here. Chicken is the main stay and pork is often an available option. They cook all of the animal so chickens feet and pigs ears are included. We'd got pretty fed up with eating bone by the time we had got to Bhamo and instead have eaten vegetables and rice (of course, fried aswell).  So when we saw steamed duck on the menu and hadn't eaten meat for over two weeks, we went for it. We ordered it a day in advance and, salivating, arrived at the agreed time. We got a well steamed duck, the meat fell off the bones. Good steamed vegetables accompanied it. It tasted great and my half had the tongue.

The beak is on the right of the plate!
