I love Burma Superstar in the Bay area and wanted to try some Burmese food down in the Los Angeles area. I found Mutiara Food & Marketin Inglewood listed on another Web site with a lot of positive reviews, so I decided to check it out. It was both great food and inexpensive.
We followed the suggestion of our waiter and got the lamb biryani and a noodle dish with chicken and shrimp. Neither was especially exotic, like the food at Burma Superstar, but they were both well prepared. Nice fresh ingredients and properly cooked. I liked that the biryani had some zip to it but you could still taste the delicate flavors. The noodles were tasty and so were the ingredients. We also got meat samosas and potato samosas that were nice and a nice dish of garlic bok choi.
If I lived here I'd definitely be a regular customer.
