Looking forward to a delicious meal at Burma Superstar is always bittersweet – while the food may be really tasty, arriving any time after 5:30pm (F-Sun) almost always means waiting an hr+ to be seated.
Such was the case this evening. However this time, a new sign marked the doorway – 1.5 blocks away was another restaurant owned by the same people – B Star!
B Star (which has apparently been open for over a year) offers select favorites from its sibling including two of their best starters: Tea Leaf salad and Vegetarian Samosa soup. There was no wait, a lot more room inside, and an outdoor seating area. The menu is a fun mix of Asian-fusion flavors, although a bit on the (relatively) pricey side.
If you’re craving Burma Superstar, but can’t stomach the wait, B Star is a pleasant and convenient alternative.
