Coming back to visit Burlingame next week :) Has anyone tried this Burmese restaurant on Burlingame Ave? I saw they had my fave ginger salad :)

Other ethnic recs in Burlingame,San Mateo and Milbrae as well? I'm a fish/veggie guy-so no meats...Best felafel??

    Plenty of decent ramen places. My personal favorite is Himawari in San Mateo.

    Thanks for mentioning the Burmese place in Burlingame. I had no idea. (It's called Mingalaba.)

      Thanks! How difficult is it to go to Himawari and stick to my fish/veggie mode?

      They make very good falafel and other middle eastern dishes at Aladdin Market and Deli.

      It's not a restaurant and they only have a couple of tables outside the door so you might prefer to get your food to go. Tasty stuff, though.

        A friend of mine treated me to a birthday lunch at Roti Indian Bistro in Burlingame which I enjoyed very much. Though we ordered chicken entrees (tikka masala & biriyani), I am sure their fish, especially tandoori, and veg. entrees are just as delicious. Perhaps someone else can verify this.

        Also, Annapoorna in San Mateo is a good bet for South Indian veg. fare (lunch buffet & a la carte dinner). Very casual place.

          Innya Lake in San Bruno was an excellent Burmese lunch spot back when I worked near the airport.

            Mingalaba is probably better than the Burmese restaurants in SF.


            There's also Little Sheep in San Mateo for Mongolian hot pot.
