"Rangoon" - Now called Yangon, it was the capital of Myanmar until 2006. It was named Rangoon when the British took over Burma in 1852, until after WW-II (1948). The dish, Crab Rangoon, was not a Burmese food. It was concocted in the US by Joe Young for the Trader Vic's restaurant chain about 1956. You see, Cream Cheese is not used in Asian cuisine. However, now you can find these sweet "Crab Puffs" or "Crab Pillows" on many Chinese restaurant menus.
