Yoma Restaurant Review

: One of the very few Burmese --- or should we say Myanmarese --- eateries in Los Angeles County, this is a pleasant, contemporary-looking place in the heart of predominantly Chinese Monterey Park. The kitchen turns out authentic Burmese dishes such as deep-fried slices of opo (a kind of squash) with sweet-and-sour sauce, unique salads such as lap pat dok (a pungent tea leaf salad with peanuts, garlic and sesame), and goat or beef curries that seem to be influenced more by Indian cuisine than Thai. Shan noodles are also a specialty. There's a complete, separate menu of Thai dishes offered, but with such a dearth of Burmese restaurants, one should come here for the exotic cuisine of Myanmar.
