Burma Super Star

Jim Leff Dec 26, 1999 11:54 AM

Any opinions on Burma Super Star Restaurant (309 Clement Street, between Fourth and Fifth avenues; 387-2147)?

I'm headed to SF and am hoping for the great Burmese food I haven't been able to get in NYC for the last 8 years or so...

    Not sure if you already went to SF, but if not - Burma Superstar is good but uneven. Can't remember exactly what I used to get there, unfortunately.

    But while you're in SF, be sure to try Dusit for great Thai food (esp. the tofu w/crispy basil, and the spicy seafood salad.) And Kate's Kitchen for breakfast.

      Hey, thanks, Cathy. That's pretty much what I figured. Haven't gotten there yet, though I'm pretty much eating my way through town. Having really good luck this trip, will write up a gigunda file. Mustards in Napa gave me The Religion regarding California cuisine. I was blown away by every bite there (they're inconsistent lately, I hear, but this was a gooooood day). NowI want to wear turtenecks and swirl sauvignon blanc and sit up really straight all the time; forget pizza and arepas.

      God, somebody get me back to the East Coast... quickly...

            "the house" serves basically hong kong/asian very homey food, very fresh. informal, witha very slight calif. twist. the appetizers are outstanding, the noodles, are fantastic, the whole deal is something I think you would groove on. try and get there brother doggy! chow ciao, ruuf ruff enjoy

              sounds great, but don't know if I can get there this trip...tomorrow I make the move to East Bay to meet with Bob(TM) and check out the newly-reopened Flynt's BBQ (!!).

              thanks, though....it's on my short list for next trip

                Jim, please please find time to have a taco al pastor at Tacqueria CanCun on Mission & 19th! (And wash it down with a drink at the Make-Out Room on 22nd Street)

                  Cathy--I'm on my way!


                  ps--please remember to change subject titles when stuff drifts like this...makes the boards more navigable for other hounds

                  Really? Which location? And is it the same people?

                    see blurb on main page (in the "what's new" section). Much more to follow. GOD I'm happy....

                    century seems to be shaping up real well

        I have to say that the Tea Leaf Salad at Burma Superstar is probably my favorite dish in the Bay Area. The rest of the is pretty good with special props to the Poodi, but who cares... it's the Salad!
