Burma Superstar

Burmese in Golden Gate Park & the Avenues

Yes, there's a wait, but do you see anyone walking away? Blame it on fragrant moh hinga (catfish curry), tangy vegetarian samusa soup, and traditional Burmese green-tea salads tarted up with lime and fried garlic. Reservations aren't accepted – ask the host to call you so you can browse Burmese cookbooks at Green Apple Books while you wait.
