Daw Yee Myanmar Corner has the potential to become one the most accessible Burmese restaurants in the United States — or at least west of the 710 in L.A. — and the restaurant's proprietor, Delyn Chow hopes it will offer diners a good introduction to the cuisine. The dishes that Chow chose to feature at Corner are very hard to dislike. The kima platha, a roti-like layered bread stuffed with lamb or chicken, is fried to a slight crunch and served alongside a tangy, spicy sauce – it's delicious. The exciting fare can also be found in Silver Lake.
