Best Burmese

There are so many "bests" at Burma Superstar: best "falafal" (floating in the samusa dok, which is samusas broken up with the croquettes plus lentils, cabbage, and onions in what is accurately called a "nice spicy soup"), best ginger salad (gin dok, a plate covered with finely shredded ginger, dried shrimp, toasted garlic, sesame seeds, and split yellow peas, tossed at table in a spicy dressing for a fragrant, crunchy delight), best spicy chicken with fresh basil, best mango mutton, best ginger lemonade. It's a cozy place, with lots of colorful ethnic décor; it's cheap (the top price is $11.75, for a couple of fresh seafood dishes, but most menu items are under $10); the service is charming; and the neighborhood is fun to explore, too. What more do you want -- falafels in your soup?
