        More details for the Daly City Burmese festival listed above:

        Apparently the location is in a residential neighborhood and may not be that spacious. It is from 9a to 1pm, at 10 they will offering to buddha and after that they will be praying and the monk will giving some kind of speech. and then the food start. there will be mohinga, samosa, rose water and ice cream drink.etc. there will be Burmese briyani and burmese chicken dish. many burmese dessert make from cocnut milk and wheat germ. No admission fee, donations should be made for the food, around $4 per plate.

            1. I stopped by Wat Lao Saysettha on Friday. The congregation was busy prepping food and putting together the displays for the weekend. There will be live music and here's a photo of the menu for Saturday and Sunday.

              Chowhounds will be meeting there around noon, and everyone is welcome to join us. Bring cash. The seating area is tented for shade, but with a forecasted high of 80 degrees, bring sunscreen and water bottles. Take-out containers are a good idea too in order to buy extras to take home.
