Burma SuperStar 4721 Telegraph Ave./47th St., in Temescal, (510) 652-2900. L-D daily; $$. No reservations.
Though the outside is so nondescript it lacks a sign, the interior here is in shades of industrial grey and black and the hard surfaces make for a noisy backdrop to dining. Best menu choices include paratha bread with chicken curry dipping sauce, Samusa soup, fermented tea leaf salad, rainbow salad with 22 ingredients, a variety of curries (try ginger-pumpkin curry), spicy noodles, garlic noodles with duck, coconut rice, and a coconutty black rice pudding dessert. For more description, see page 324.
