The Bogyoke market Yangon is also known for its black market money changers. The jewelry merchants can change the largest notes at the best rates at this market which is closed on Mondays. The Lady Home, the little shabby shop at the back of the market behind the Jewellery Row and near the old wooden footbridge crossing the old circle line train tracks, is a paradise of fried noodles and vermicelli dishes. For adventurers, trying the flavor of boiled and fried pig organs (intestines, tongue, ears, etc.) and then tossed in fiery chili sauce is a very interesting experience.
