Craving something different and I had always heard rave reviews about a place called Burma Superstar but the wait is always really long at the restaurant itself. My co-worker suggested to do take-out since it takes only 15-20 minutes so conveniently their menu is online and I was able to order and when Ron came to pick me up from work, we went straight to the restaurant to pick-up. I was surprised when it was ready so quickly, less than 15 minutes after I ordered.
We tried their famous tea leaf salad. Lots of ingredients with a bit tangy and bitter dressing. I liked the peanuts, sesame seeds, and fried garlic. I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I’d be but maybe it tastes better freshly prepared in the restaurant.
Next dish was nan pia dok: coconut curry flat noodles with chicken. It needed a bit more spice and had probably cooled down too much once we started eating so the sauce was thick and wouldn’t coat the noodles easily.
Lastly, we ordered their string beans and fiery tofu with chicken dishes. The string beans were good but a small portion. The “fiery” tofu wasn’t very fiery.
So perhaps it must be much better in the restaurant since I didn’t really enjoy the take-out. All this cost $42 which seems a bit expensive for the portion size. With so many more places to try, not sure when we’ll be back to try it again.
