Another great review on Yelp for Little Yangon!

Nice people, delicious food, perfect portions, good price. Lovely local place… just what you’d expect from a ‘top of the hill’ Daly City location. Highly recommended for the salads alone. Thank You Jason L. for the great review! [Read more of our reviews on yelp]

What Are the Customs of Burma?

Thinking of planning a trip to Burma?. Here’s a great travel article on their customs, especially when it comes to eating. [Full article here]

Cuisine of Burma

The cuisine of Burma has been influenced by the cuisines of China, India and Thailand but is characterized by extensive use of fish products like fish sauce. Burmese cuisine has retained unique preparation techniques and distinct flavours, and there are many regional variations of “standard” dishes. Seafood is a common ingredient in coastal cities such as Sittwe, Kyaukpyu, Mawlamyaing (formerly Moulmein), Mergui (Myeik) and Dawei, while meat and poultry are more commonly used in landlocked cities like Mandalay. Freshwater fish and shrimp have been incorporated into inland cooking as a primary source of protein and are used in a variety of ways, fresh, salted whole or filleted, salted and dried, made into a salty paste, or fermented sour and pressed.[Source]

Another Satisfied Customer! on Yelp

Thank you Darlene for this great review, we hope to see you again real soon!

Great tea leaf salad without the wait of Burma Superstar.

The service was super friendly and attentive. Our server could tell we weren’t very familiar with Burmese food, so she sweetly offered suggestions, which we took.

I had the catfish stew, which was hearty and good. More chowdery, it surprisingly tasted very clean and slightly spicy. They have lot of options on the menu and many vegetarian/vegan dishes. If you love garlic, the garlic noodles will hit the spot. The fish in the fish curry was cooked perfectly, soft. Satisfying meal.

Service with a smile and good food. I’ll eat here again.[Source]
