Burma Tea Leaf

Calvinist | Jan 5, 201112:48 PM

Was out in the Richmond yesterday and walked into Burma Tea Leaf, a pretty little restaurant on Clement St between 8th & 9th. We had Tea Leaf Salad, Prawn Curry and Sautéed Pea Sprouts. The Tea Leaf salad was pleasant. It had a fair amount of iceberg lettuce, which made it much sweeter than the versions I've had at Burma Superstar and Little Yangon. Prawns were served in a mild yellow curry, livened up with jalapeno slices and a couple of whole birds-eye chilies. The prawns themselves had good texture and flavor. And the Pea Sprouts were delicious, delicately cooked, and flavored a bit differently than in Chinese cooking, although I couldn't identify the flavor exactly. Something like sesame oil but not exactly the same.

Lunch for two, with rice and tea: $29. While I don't think I'd drive across town to go there, I would come back for another meal if I was in the neighborhood.
