Burma Superstar is a cult-worthy restaurant that I used to live near in San Francisco, and everyday people would wait nearly 2 hours to get their signature Samusa Soup. I was reminded of Burma Superstar because Chef Valerie who works with up spent time in Burma, and obsessed over the food! Burmese food often combines spices and legumes that are familiar to Indian cooking, with many ingredients and techniques people associate with Southeast Asian cuisine. While these flavors are often strong, we use them with enough subtlety so that the flavor of the vegetables is in the forefront, making it refreshing to eat. If you're familiar with Burma Superstar or Burmese food you know how good this is. If Burmese food is new to you, come join us on a trip!

Menu detail

Tamarind-Soy Glazed Phoenix Bean Tofu Skewers
Appetizer
Seared Long Beans & Bell Peppers, with Sambal & Roasted Peanuts
Smoked Eggplant & Cauliflower Hot Pot
Small Plate
I love clay pot cooking, and we'll make a hearty, meaty smoked eggplant served with cauliflower in a gratin style! While the flavors will be distinctly Burmese, serving it in a gratin style is not! But we're in the Midwest, cut us some slack...
Burma Salad
Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Ginger macerating in our Fermented Lime Dressing, served with Fried Crispy Chickpeas, Shallots, and Sunflower Seeds for garnish, and Crisp Romaine.
Samusa Soup
Entree
Housemade Fried Samusas and Chana Dal Falafel to add to our Umami-Rich Tamarind Broth, served with Shredded Cabbage, Cilantro, and Lime. This is one of my favorite dishes, and it's totally addictive. People in San Francisco would stand in the rain for hours for this soup, and here you are in Chicago, not having to wait in line for the good stuff! I'm excited to share this dish with you
Black Rice Pudding with Mango
Dessert
Lightly warmed to fit the season
