Mandalay: A User’s Guide

Classic Burmese and Mandarin Cuisine | Family-Style Dining | Vegetarian Friendly | Zagat Rated

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer: balada—a crispy Burmese-style pancake, served with curry dipping sauce
  • Salad: lap pat dok—tea-leaf salad with lentil seed, green pepper, peanuts, and shrimp, dressed tableside
  • Meat entree: smoked tea duck
  • Vegetarian entree: tofu kebat—stir-fried tofu served with onions, tomatoes, and green chilies

When to Go: Expect a long wait on the weekends if you don’t have a reservation. Try going on on a weeknight or midday for a shorter wait.

Fun Fact: Mandalay was one of the first Burmese restaurants in San Francisco.

Vocab Lesson
Curry: a spicy, thick sauce made from a variety of ground herbs, spices, and seeds. This traditionally Southeast Asian dish has branched into other cuisines, and spiciness and ingredients vary by recipe.
Samosa: fried pastries filled with spiced meat or veggies popular in South Asian and North African cuisine.

While You’re in the Neighborhood
Before: Stock up on unique loose-leaf teas at Aroma Tea Shop (302 6th Avenue).
After: Explore the rotating selection of globally sourced wines at Internos Wine Café & Merchant (3240 Geary Boulevard).
