Kyain Kyain has been on the to-try list for a while. Soleil Ho and the Chronicle team put Kyain Kyain on their top 100 restaurant list of the Bay Area. Definitely a good Burmese restaurant- one that I’d happily go back to.
Noodle salad with curry chicken. Delicious curry with succulent pieces of chicken mixed with noodle. Its an appetizer but its large enough as a noodle main course. The noodle did a great job mopping up all the aromatic curry.
Pork noodle soup/ kyay oh. Clear and flavorful pork-based broth with pork balls, intestines, liver, tofu, fish ball, mustard green, quail eggs and hor fun. Can’t see it from the picture (but you can see from the menu picture further down) but the bowl had a mix of thin and flat noodle, as suggested by the server. Its a pretty laid back and homey noodle soup.
Chicken curry with chana dahl bean. The highlight to me wasn’t the chicken curry, which was perfectly adequate, but its the chopped green beans and mild red chili mixed with jasmine rice. Not sure what they cooked the green beans with, but its very delicious.
Lots of food for an adult and a kid. Took lots home and happily finished the leftovers. Item prices were very economical. The meal was great value. We went on the early side at lunch time on a weekend and it wasn’t very crowded.
