40) Tea Leaf Salad at Burma Superstar


If you come to the SF Bay Area, you have to visit the mega-popular mini-chain Burma Superstar. With the risk of sounding straight info-commercial, their food is fresh and fabulous. Menu standouts include the Samusa Soup (FALAFEL AND SAMOSAS IN SPICY HEAVEN BROTH) and the outstanding Burmese food gateway drug, Tea Leaf Salad — a mixture of fried garlic, chopped tomatoes, spicy jalapenos, crispy peanuts, fresh lemon, and all mixed up with a tangy tea leaf dressing. Learn it, live it, love it. Just remember to order it with no shrimp! (by Laura)
