About


Burma Bear began in 2013 as a pop-up restaurant and gained popularity through secret dinner events and large festivals, including the Eat Real Festival, and the Treasure Island Music Festival. In October of 2014 Burma Bear opened its first brick and mortar at Second Act Marketplace on Haight Street in San Francisco. Burma Bear's Unique dishes - a blend of Burmese flavors and American BBQ - have been featured on Zagat, SF Eater, Thrillist, and SF Weekly. We're growing rapidly, in 2015 we were one of only seven new vendors accepted into Off the Grid at Fort Mason, and in 2016 we opened our first  standalone restaurant at 325 19th Street Oakland.
