Burmese-Chinese Restaurant (that's the name), Fremont report w/ pics
First time at Burmese-Chinese Restaurant. I'm just happy they have a Burmese restaurant in Fremont!
My co-worker goes there for lunch and they have $3.99 or $4.99 lunch specials. Broccoli Chicken, Shanghai Ribs, Sauteed Potato Strips, etc.
This place is pretty roomy. 8 round table & 12-4 tops. Mirrors on the back wall to make it look bigger. Separate bathrooms in the back. I found out from the waiter that the Owner & the Chef are from Burma.
Take-out menu is different than eating there. If you eat there, there's at least 3 menus to look at. One was a Chinese menu on the table under the glass. Then the book one & lunch specials.
FREE tea given - I think it was Jasmine & very nice. We asked for iced water too & got both
Dishes we tried:
Burmese paratha $4.95 - yummy paratha..a little bit greasy but nice tasting, curry sauce was not that great..it had shredded meat in it I think & not much flavor.
Burmese smoked chicken $5.95 - hubby liked it, I don't care for smoked meats.
Coconut chicken rice noodle soup $8.55 - huge bowl of spaghetti noodles, not much chicken in it, not very creamy. Maybe I should have gotten the coconut chicken rice noodle for $7.55 (NOT soup).
They brought out a beef noodle soup w/ lots of bell pepper which we didn't order. They took it back & had to wait for the Periwinkle chowder rice noodle soup. Waitress said it was better, next time maybe.
Periwinkle chowder rice noodle soup $7.95 - like pho w/ basil & add the periwinkle (clams). Hubby liked it. I thought it was ok.
Our total with tax (though not marked) was $29.80. Credit cards taken.
Not in a hurry to go back, but might one day.
Location: It's next to the Lion's Food Court (in the corner) off the Warm Springs exit.
Think the hrs are: 11a-10p Daily

Nice to hear a review of this place - been here a few times.
I remember ordering the smoked duck, which was rather meaty, tender, and not over-smoked. They also had a fish dish that was poached with flavored water and oil that had a very good texture, but it might be too light for some palates. I did notice a good-looking specialty chicken dish that they had on the menu (the picture with the red and green flecks of vegetables on top). However, the waiter said that it was unavailable at that time.
I hope they introduce more Burmese food though - the $5 lunch menu (not the restaurant menu) is pretty standard Chinese take-out fare, and not in any way uniquely Burmese. I agree about the tea though - very fragrant and nice.
