Burma Superstar Is Finally, Finally Opening on Valencia This Month

It only took three years, but the Clement favorite is coming to the Mission.

Announced way back in the halcyon days of January 2012, Burma Superstar Valencia is the current holder of Eater SF's La Rondalla Memorial Award For Absurdly Delayed Projects. (It's also a winner of our Sunny Von Bulow Prize For Prompt Communication, which may have something to do with that.) But it looks like the megahit Burmese mini-chain is finally getting somewhere when it comes to their Mission outpost: Tablehopper reveals that they're planning to open in the former Bodhi Vietnamese as soon as two weeks from now, in a hip-looking space with lots of scalloped title and, you guessed it, reclaimed wood and concrete.

The menu won't be any different from the other Burmas, with the usual favorites like samusa soup, tea-leaf salad, coconut chicken noodle soup, yellow bean curry, and more. Unlike the Clement location, however, this one will have full liquor, with some easygoing cocktails in the $10 range and a separate bar room that will help accommodate the long waits for which the restaurant is famous. Expect it to drop sometime just after Christmas, with hours from 5-10 pm daily; lunch will come online a month or two later.
