Yamo, A Great Hole in the Wall

Walk into Yamo and you will find yourself at a hole in the wall, featuring approximately 12 bar seatings surrounding their kitchen, three ladies bitching and talking in Cantonese while cooking in an organized assembly line, and people walking in and out for their pick up orders.  I went on a Friday night and there was no line, but lots of pick up orders! Don’t expect the best service, you won’t get any no matter how good looking you are. And trust me, you do not want to wear your best clothes to this place cause you will walk out smelling like their greasy kitchen. But one thing’s for sure, you will walk out happy with your delicious Burmese food!

It was just 2 of us but we were hungry! We ordered the Samusa wraps filled with fried curry spices and potatoes, the Tea Salad with tea leaves, cabbage, fresh tomato, onion, dried shrimp and a variety of fried beans, nuts and sesame seeds, Fish Chowder Noodle Soup with shredded pieces of fish and fried beans and the Yamo House Noodles mixed with fried garlic and beef! Honestly, we loved everything, they all offered wonderful flavors, I especially love their Tea Salad and Fish Chowder Noodle Soup!

And yes, if you speak Cantonese, it helps, I know we put a smile on their faces! Last but not least, Cash Only!
