Mingalaba Restaurant

Peninsula and South Bay, California

As soon as I stepped in the door an amazing aroma of smells greated my guest and me. We both chose from the luncheon set meal. Service was friendly and willing to switch the set appetizer (egg rolls) for salads (papaya and mango). First course egg drop soup was delicious as were the salads. My main course, walnut, broccoli, and tofu was fabulous as was my friend's spicy basil eggplant. An unexpected dessert of mango pudding topped the luncheon off splendedly. The portions were generous and the price very reasonable. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent Burmese cuisine in Burlingame's shopping district downtown. Menu has lots of good vegetarian options, though I wouldn't qualify this place as specifically vegan-friendly. (Staff were courteous, but had to go ask about many of the vegetarian dishes with respect to 'fish sauce' and or dairy/eggs).

In the context of San Francisco, there are better vegan restaurants, but if you're trying to stay near SFO this makes for a nice compromise.
