Kyusu Burmese Cuisine, San Jose - anyone been?

hhc | Mar 31, 2013 08:37 AM

I read about Kyusu Burmese Cuisine from the Silicon Valley Metro. The co-owner Monaye Win lived in Burma as a kid & then his family moved to Japan, then relocated to US. Many of the recipes based on his mother's cooking from the Shan state of Burma.

Things to try there: tea-leaf salad, Seik Tar Chet aka goat stew, Shan Kuak Swe - rice noodle soup w/ chicken, pork, veggies, peanuts, garlic $8.5; Tofu Gyaw -fried tofu appetizer that resembles crackers $5.5; fried curry aroma chicken $8.5-his mom's personal concoctions, fried hunks of chicken in sweet & sour curry & slight Japanese flair to it.

Any reports?
