Yoma Myanmar | Monterey Park/ Alhambra/ S. Gabriel | Burmese | Restaurant
Loading...
Burmese food is truly one of the great, under-represented cuisines. Tiny Yoma Myanmar in Monterey Park serves a range of dishes from the southeast Asian country that feature a fascinating blend of influences from its neighbors, namely China, India and Thailand. The national dish of mont hin ga (catfish noodle soup), khao soi (coconut noodle soup) and tea leaf salad -- with its impossible to describe rush of umami -- are starting points, but there's plenty more to discover at this overlooked gem on Garvey Avenue.
