Ten Places To Try Burmese Food in San Francisco

Mohinga (catfish chowder) at Burmese Kitchen
San Francisco is blessed with Burmese food choices, more so than any other city in North America, and perhaps the entire English-speaking world.  Below is a list of 10 places to try Burmese food. All have Burma's most well-known "exotic" dish, fermented tea leaf salad, and all except B-Star Bar and the pop-up at Jonas on Hyde have Mohinga, the catfish chowder considered Burma's national dish. Except where noted, all are open for both lunch and dinner.

I cheated a little with Little Yangon; it's technically in Daly City, but I included it because it's accessible via Muni (#14 lines).
