lunch near SFMOMA -- Natoma

Joy | Sep 9, 2005 06:43 PM

We decided on Natoma, since my friend loves Burmese food. It's definitely the kind of place I'd be unlikely to find on my own, hidden away as it is. Thanks so much, hounds, for once again steering me right.

We had #6 -- the chicken palada, and #16 -- cold noodles with chicken and veggies. The #6 was pretty good -- the bread was delicious, and the chicken and potato stuff tasty but a little bland. However, mixed with the spicy veggies it comes with, which were too spicy for me on their own, it was excellent. The noodle dish was a little too greasy, and could have used some different textures, but was still pretty good. It was basically room temp noodles and fried onions and chicken and not much else except for spices. All in all, a very nice lunch, and at $13 for two w/ beverage (very good iced tea), a real deal.

This place has an amazingly large menu for such a tiny joint. While the Burmese specials were good enough to want to return, the sandwiches and salads also looked pretty good. I wish I worked closer -- you could easily eat lunch here every day for weeks and not get bored (or broke).
