My favourite Burmese restaurant. I'm craving their mango salad with fried onions, garlic and cilantro.A great classic that also highlights a unique aspect of San Francisco since 1980s, as we have the most concentrated, thriving Burmese community in America. Burma Superstar is the most famous restaurant that everyone knows. But my favourite Burmese restaurant is actually Mandalay and it has been here since 1984, the oldest Burmese restaurant in the U.S. I sometimes come back from around the world and I'm craving their mango salad - they do it like no one else. It's strips of juicy orange mango with fried onions, garlic and cilantro. It's savoury, sweet, bright, fresh and light. And of course they do tea leaf salad and some of the other legendary Burmese dishes, like a traditional Burmese dish of coconut chicken noodle with yellow pea powder. It's a special neighbourhood hole in the wall atmosphere kind of place.
