Looking to chow down on some Burmese fare? A new spot has you covered. Located at 1298 Church St. in Noe Valley, the new addition is called Inle Burmese Cuisine.
Named for a freshwater lake located in the Shan Hills of Myanmar, this restaurant serves a concise menu of authentic Burmese starters, noodle dishes and rice plates. Try the tea leaf salad, the veggie-friendly samosa soup, the coconut noodle soup with chicken, the Shan noodles (rice noodles tossed with tofu, tomato and black bean sauce) or the pork curry.
When it comes to drinks, Inle Burmese Cuisine offers a variety of soft drinks and teas, and for dessert, there are traditional sweets like cassava cake and sticky rice with banana and black bean.
Inle Burmese Cuisine is off to a solid start, boasting 4.5 stars out of 15 reviews on Yelp.
Cary L., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on Oct. 13, wrote, "The food was excellent and came out quickly. The service was attentive. The beef curry was really flavorful and the meat was so tender. The fish noodle soup was really nice. It came with a side dish with chili flakes, a lime wedge, cilantro and what I think were bits of Chinese doughnut."
Yelper Cesar R. noted, "Very lovely and clean. Nice service. I would definitely recommend it."
Intrigued? Stop in to try it for yourself. Inle Burmese Cuisine is open from 11:30 a.m.–3 p.m. and 5–9:30 p.m. on Tuesday-Saturday and from noon–9 p.m. on Sunday. (It's closed on Monday.)
