The Best of Burmese Classics

In-Person Mission, San Francisco


Pop-up space
Banquet (20+ Guests)
I grew up in Myanmar, otherwise known as Burma. Over 26 years ago I immigrated to the foggy neighborhoods of San Francisco where I found work in the kitchen of a restaurant now known as Burma Superstar. Since then, I’ve left to work as a Muni driver but I still love to make Burmese food for myself and my husband. Burmese street food vendors used to serve Mohinga as a breakfast staple but now the seafood soup is available all day long and is considered by some to be the national dish. This meal is an ode to the rice noodle soup and the other Burmese favorites, tea leaf salad and samusa. There will also be a refreshing dessert to end the evening.
