Liquor license activity pointed to the opening of ~RANGOON SUPER STARS~ in Berkeley, a Burmese restaurant from chef U Win Aye (Scoop pointed out the name is an amalgam of the chef’s previous locations: Burma Superstar and Rangoon Ruby in Palo Alto). Many know the location as the former Casa de Eva, Zax Tavern, Maritime East, and Locanda da Eva.
The restaurant website promises a “unique twist on Chinese, Indian, and Thai foods,” and the menu includes appetizers like palata (hand-tossed, multilayered bread served with coconut chicken curry) and handmade tofu made from yellow bean powder, served with soy chile sauce. There are classics like a tea leaf salad, a number of noodles and curry dishes, and a variety of vegan options, like a samosa soup and salad (it’s a pretty extensive menu). Hours are daily 11am-2:30pm (lunch) and 5pm-10pm (dinner). The opening is Thursday September 5th at 5pm. 2826 Telegraph Ave. at Oregon, Berkeley, 510-647-9744.
