Natoma Cafe in FiDi, San Francisco - a gem!

Natoma Café’s 16 Burmese specialties are Chowhound gems! Thanks Melanie for this authentic discovery and Katya for trying Kyetha Plata. I too tried the Kyetha Plata. I could eat it daily. The plata bread foundation was a thick paratha like bread with divine flavor, texture and flakiness. The chicken curry had mild heat, excellent flavor, and was an enormous portion. The tangy, crunchy coleslaw like side salad nicely complemented the chicken.

The owner is very friendly and was pleased I was so interested in the Burmese dishes. Seems like most other customers order the regular sandwiches, soups and salads. I asked the owner about Natoma Cafe on weekends, and he said the restaurant is closed because he caters on weekends. The good news is that he can cater Burmese dishes!

I’m looking forward to trying the tea salad (letpat thoke) on my next visit! To answer Thadu’s question, Natoma Café does offers lat toke sone. Natoma Café is open M-F from 7am-4pm. It is at 145 Natoma Street. Natoma is a quiet alley between Mission and Howard Streets. The cross street is New Montgomery. It is towards a dead end street. Phone is 415 495 3289
