Burma Superstar, the wildly popular SF eatery, continues its East Bay expansion, this time into hot, happening Temescal. In rapid fashion, this outpost has earned a following as fanatical as its Richmond District origins. Go early or go late, or expect to wait. The space—short-lived home to the Horseshoe—is loud, so tables turn quickly, even though the apps, salads, soups, sides, noodles, rice and chicken, pork, beef, lamb and seafood dishes warrant savoring every bite. This is great food redolent with curries, garlic, chili, mint, coconut, cilantro, nuts and seeds with cooking cues from India, China, Laos and Thailand. The tea leaf salad really does stand up to the hype, and the rainbow salad with 22 ingredients deserves raves, too. The chili lamb, wok-tossed with chili, onions and basil, is superb. For that matter, everything on the menu seems to be splendid. Lunch and dinner daily.
