Burmese: Mandalay or Burmasuper for lunch today?

Ciao Bob Jul 16, 2012 10:42 AM

Any preferences?

off topic Bar Tartine has been the hit of the trip so far - the tripe was one of the best dishes I've ever had. Will write more later

. Thanks sf hounds

    Mandalay. Less Americanized and IMO tastier.

      Careful to stick to the Burmese dishes and skip the "Mandalay Chicken"
      Get the Tea Leaf Salad (Lap Pat Dok)
      Any of the first 5 soups
      Mandalay Special Noodle

        also, the banana blossom salad, and catfish chowder (mohinga).

        avoid any americanized dishes, and you'll get the mango jello at the end rather than fortune cookies.

        oh, and the samusa soup.

          Mandalay is definitely my favorite...

            Mandalay was fantastic. We started the day with salted duck and xlb at Shanghai Dumpling King. Both very nice, then strolled through the wonderful asian markets and restaurants of Richmond. A quick BBQ pork snack then an amazing meal @ Mandalay: Tea Salad, Samosa Soup and Special noodle were all fabulously delish. Fantastic
            Thanks for the help.
            Did I say fantastic?
