SF Weekly's Description
Cozy Clement Street restaurant features stunningly good Burmese cuisine, itself a blend of Thai, Chinese, and Indian influences. Start with the moh hinga (fish porridge), the samusa soup, or the elaborate, 22-ingredient rainbow salad. Then order a side of rice (coconut, spicy Indian-style, or Burmese fried) to go with entrees like an exquisite pork and potato curry, squid sautéed with chilies and basil, or curried noodles with chicken and coconut milk. For dessert, try the coconut custard fritters. Small, affordable list of beer and wine.
Tips from foursquare
17. Tea-leaf salad at Burma Superstar(from 7x7's 100 Things to Try Before You Die | http://tr.im/7x7list)
Slurp some samusa soup...it's #17 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.
Sharing borders with India, China, Laos and Thailand, Burmese cuisine is inevitably influenced by the spices, seasonings, ingredients, and cooking styles of its neighbors.
My last meal on earth will hopefully include a tea leaf salad, samosa soup, superstar vegetarian noodles and lots of sangria and coconut rice.
There is just something fun about having the server mix up the 22 ingredients of your rainbow salad in front of you that makes a meal an adventure. - Inspector
