I was headed to the Fillmore and didn't have the time to wait at Burma Superstar so I went to Mandalay on California instead. Very nice interior, great menu, great service.
I had the Ginger Salad and the fish soup and a ginger lemonade. All were delicious. One caveat, they brought a dish with extra lemons and cilantro. I put some cilantro on my ginger salad - big mistake. It had a very harsh metallic taste. Clearly the cilantro was for the soup.
I recommend Mandalay. Its a more relaxed place than BS which I still like and will return to. Can't get enough Burmese food!
