Burma Superstar originated in the Richmond in San Francisco, but has been blessing Oakland with incredible Burmese dishes - and a life-changing tea leaf salad - since 2009. The spicy, salty, sweet flavors keep us coming back again and again, and enduring the ridiculously long waits (this location doesn’t take reservations).
