Burma Superstar: Addictive Recipes from the Crossroads of Southeast Asia

by Desmond Tan and Kate Leahy

An eclectic collection of 80 achievable yet spectacular recipes from famed San Francisco Bay Area Burmese restaurant, Burma Superstar. For years, Bay Area residents and out-of-towners have packed the house--and lined up out the door--for the salads, curries, rice, and stir-fries served at Burma Superstar, a beloved Burmese restaurant with four locations in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

This collection of recipes includes favorites like Tea Leaf Salad, Fiery Tofu, Classic Mohinga, Garlic Noodles, and Black Rice Pudding that have made the group of restaurants one of the most recognizable in the Bay Area but it also takes readers into the kitchens of Burmese home cooks, whose style of cooking drives menu inspiration. As Burma--now called Myanmar--opens up to the world after a half century of seclusion, there has never been a more exciting time to share the multi-ethnic flavors of Burma Superstar.
