Burmese Kitchen - 452 Larkin near Turk, SFCA

    I was intending to eat at a place called Larkin Express because I'd heard they had curried goat stew. When I got there I discovered it was now Burmese Kitchen, but I didn't care. I said, good, now I don't have to go to the Richmond or Top of the Hill. I found out it's still the same owners, they just changed the name. But the curried goat isn't available anymore.
   I made do with the Ginger Salad (6.5), a healthy combo of shredded cabbage, ginger, peanuts and various dried peas with sesame seeds on top. This was a perfect foil for the Spicy Fish (7.95), two nice batter-fried filets smothered in a potent sauce of shallots, garlic and pepper. This baby had kick to it!
   The whole menu here is very reasonably priced and has plenty of vegetarian options. They're open daily except Sunday from 10:30 to 8:15. If you'd like to order online, go to:


  1. The owner took over the deli and slowly started introducing Burmese items. After a couple of years the Burmese part of the menu completely took over. The curried goat was most likely a limited time special as I never saw it on the menu and have eaten here regularly from day 1. I'm a big fan of their pickled mango pork.

  2. The goat was never on the menu, so I'm told, but available in a limited supply each day. You just had to know.
