[image_with_animation image_url=”17787″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”17788″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Bai Bua Thai Cuisine is family owned restaurant on Hastings Sunrise neighborhood. It is close to Tacofino Commissary and Mr. Red Cafe. Bai Bua itself means Lotus Leaf – often used as food wraps and as herbal medicine. Bai Bua itself is brightly lit, open and welcoming.

Bai Bua Thai offers authentic Thai food that is flavorful and competes with Kin Kao.

Chicken Wings 7.99: 8 pieces of deep fried crispy wings marinated in garlic and spices. Juicy and plump and came piping hot. The batter is light, not greasy and reminds me a Church’s. And that is a good thing!

[image_with_animation image_url=”17792″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Chicken Satay 7.90: Grilled marinated chicken in coconut milk, turmeric, garlic, Thai spices and served with peanut sauce, salsa of fresh cucumber and red onion. I thought it was a little dry and flavors were bland.

[image_with_animation image_url=”17786″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][image_with_animation image_url=”17784″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Tom Kha Gai (Chicken coconut milk soup) 10.90: Ever since we went to Departure, we have been craving Tom Kha Gai. So naturally we had to order this when we saw it on the menu. Tom Kha Gai is a spicy coconut milk soup. This one is a little thin but still has a lot of great flavors. Lots of chicken, mushrooms, coriander, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, chili, galangal ginger and lime juice.

[image_with_animation image_url=”17793″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Som Tum (Papaya Salad) 8.90: One of my favorite dishes of the night. Their Papaya salad with medium heat is refreshing and delicious. Shreaded green papaya, carrot, lime, tamarind juices, green bean, tomato, fresh chili, garlic, peanut and fish sauce. Just the right amount of tart, spices and acidity.

[image_with_animation image_url=”17785″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”]

Pad Thai with Prawns 10.99: Stir fried thin rice noodles, tamarind sauce, sugar, salted radish, egg, chives, bean sprouts and ground peanuts. The noodles were a little sweet. I added some chili oil to it and it was ok.

Mango sticky rice. It is made into a shape of a rose. It is so pretty! I’m looking forward to their curries and other signature Thai dishes.

Fat Mao Noodle Chinatown Vancouver Chef Angus An Maenam Instanomss Nomss Lifestyle Blog Canada

Fat Mao Chinatown is a new noodle bar in Vancouver by Chef Angus An. Those familiar with his other tasty ventures like Maenam Thai Restaurant in Kitsilano and Longtail Kitchen in New Westminster would have this small casual noodle bar on your radar! “Fat Mao” literally translates to the fat cat is located on the ground floor of 217 East Georgia Street – iconic yellow palette “The Flat” is a nine storey, 26 unit residential building designed by Birmingham and Wood with ASIR Architects. It is one of the contemporary balcony/screen idea now transforming the Chinatown area.

This quick in-and-out in less than 30 minute restaurant is strategically located beside The Ramen ButcherPhnom Penh and Matchstick Coffee Roasters – high traffic, high turn over, and lots of overflow. We came here a few times during late afternoon Fat Mao was already “sold out” of their noodles. “Sorry no more noodles” a sign plastered on the window. Today we were able to find a seat no problem.

Fat Mao tugs at a few childhood heart strings like cute cartoon drawings of maneki-neko (lucky cat) and some copies of Slam Dunk anime comics set on the table. Something to do if you are bored waiting for your food. Hopefully you can read Chinese. Or if just look at the pictures!

Century Egg with House Tofu 7.99: To be honest, I was a little dismayed by the sticker price of this comforting cold appetizer. However, I love the smoothness of the tofu, the texture of bonito flakes, century egg and the flavors of soy and other seasonings combined. Maybe, I will order this again.

Braised Duck Noodles 11.99: A rich duck broth with clear rice noodles. It comes with a large tender duck leg. We were advised to add a few spoonfuls of the red spicy vinegar sauce (much similar to red chili sauce paired with Hainan chicken).

 

Fat Mao Noodle Chinatown Vancouver Chef Angus An Maenam Instanomss Nomss Lifestyle Blog Canada

Koh Soi Chiang Mai Curry Chicken 11.99: Similar concept as the duck noodles. Large chicken leg served with egg noodles. The broth was light and towards the bland side. We added a lot of chili flakes and chili oil. I do like the crunch noodles on top!

 

 

Overall, there wasn’t enough broth to be called a soup noodle (much of the soup was already soaked up by the noodles). It wasn’t dry enough to be considered a lo-mein. It had us confused to the original intention. Anyways, we asked for extra broth and it made a world of difference!

Thai House Restaurant Richmond is located across from Lansdowne Mall. Asian restaurants in Richmond are dime a dozen, but sometimes we get so used to eating at certain places that we forget about others. So it was refreshing to have some Thai food instead of dim sumramen or wonton noodle soup! There are not many Thai restaurants in Richmond. Usually Thai House immediately comes to mind.

Green Curry with Beef (Kaeng Kiew Waan Neua) 15.50: Beef with green curry paste, eggplant, bell peppers and coconut milk. It was a good consistency and wasn’t too watery. We didn’t find it to be too salty as some people have suggested.

Burma Superstar San Francisco | Burmese Tea Leaf Salad and Chili Lamb

Burma Superstar San Francisco | Burmese Tea Leaf Salad and Chili Lamb

Burma Superstar San Francisco Instanomss Nomss

Burma Superstar is one of the restaurants on our Must Eat San Francisco list. This ethnic Burmese restaurant is famous amongst San Franciscans and has over 4306 votes of 4 stars and above on Yelp. Burma Superstar may not be a San Francisco tourist attraction but it is definitely one to add to the list. Get here early to avoid the line ups!

We were lucky after coming back from Napa Valley that we didn’t have to wait long. Don’t worry! They have heaters in the front should it get chilly.

Since Burma shares borders with India, China, Laos and Thailand, it shares many of the same flavor profiles. Burmese cuisine is expected to be full of complexities, spices, and seasonings.

 

Burma Superstar San Francisco Instanomss Nomss

Rainbow Salad: Featured on Food Network. This salad made with 22 different ingredients. Four types of noodles, green papaya, tofu, onions, dried shrimp, (or vegetarian) and a tamarind dressing. This salad reminds me of a pad thai with some spices and crunchy nuts. It is a refreshing salad.

Tea Leaf Salad: This salad was featured on Food Network and is one of their signature dishes. This romaine salad is Asian inspired and is highlighted with lahpet. Lahpet is the Burmese word for fermented tea. The fermented tea used in this salad comes from Burma. The tea has a bittersweet taste that lingers with a smooth finish. Corn, pine nuts, fried garlic chips, peanuts, fried yellow split peas/lentils and toasted sesame is added on top of sesame oil to enhance the nutty, earthy flavor of this Tea Leaf Salad. The salad is tossed in front of you while the server explains the ingredients

Pumpkin Pork Stew: This cozy tender pork stew slow cooked with kabocha squash and ginger. The pork cubes are slow cooked for many hours and literally melt in your mouth, fall of the bones soft. I love how the pumpkin soaks up all the sauce and juices from the pork.

 

Burma Superstar San Francisco Instanomss Nomss

Chili Lamb: Not available mild. Do not let the all the red chili scare you. It really isn’t that spicy! I’m sure they have removed the seeds and membranes. Stir fried lamb with dried and fresh chili, onion and basil, comes medium spicy, or spicier! There is a sweet finish to the sauce and is a subtle basil flavor poking through. The lamb strips are tender and goes perfectly with their delicious coconut rice.

Coconut Rice: So what’s the fuzz with just some coconut rice? The Burma Superstar coconut rice seems to be have cooked in coconut milk. There is a strong coconut flavor with toasted coconut flakes.
