Best Thai/Burmese 

Burma Superstar

San Francisco's popular and crowded Burma Superstar has now opened two East Bay locations, and they've proven to be well worth the wait. Formerly called Bagan, the Alameda location features all the deliciousness of its West Bay sibling without the long wait for a table, and a third Burma Superstar just opened up in Oakland's Temescal neighborhood this April. Burma, or Myanmar, is bordered by India, China, and Thailand, and the cuisine is reminiscent of each. Particular favorites include the highly addictive tea leaf salad featuring tea leaves, lettuce, tomatoes, optional dried shrimp, fried garlic, sesame seeds, peanuts, and yellow split peas mixed at your table; the vegetarian samusa soup (yes, like Indian samosas); the delectable pumpkin pork stew, preferably over coconut rice; or garlic noodles with duck, pork, or tofu. But really, it's hard to go wrong, so you might want to go with a group, order a wide selection, and try everything.
