Finally got a chance to try this place. My only exposure to Burmese food being repeated visits to Nan Yang in Oakland, I had no expectations. Lunch, so we only had 4 things.
Garlic noodles with pork. Blah. Wrong kind of noodles, hardly any galrlic, small pieces of pork that still managed to be chewy.
Chicken and potato samusas. Fine, freshly fried, hot sauce mainly just hot, kinda one dimensional.
Coconut rice, warm and fluffy, slightly sweet. Husband declared it his favorite rice ever.
The piece de resistance. Sesame chicken. Best ever. A Chinese dish, this is a classic of fried chicken pieces in a tangy, sweet, garlicky sauce sprinkled with sesame seeds. I used to love this dish at Osome (on Fillmore) un til they took it off the menu in the 90's. (For a while, you could still order it under the table, no more.)
All in all, a worthwhile trip, even standing in line in the middle of the day on a Sunday.
Oh, and the sangria was sweet and fruity, nice on a sunny day in the Richmond.
