(This venue is closed; the grocery that housed it is still a going concern.) I could grow to love the smell of mohinga in the morning.
Though I haven't risen early enough for the $2 breakfast special — that famous fish noodle soup or a chicken coconut soup, plus a small coffee — no item on the terse Burmese menu tops $5. The proprietor, who has prepared sushi for many years, continues that practice at this month-old enterprise glimpsed in passing by an observant Chowhound. For what it's worth, the Boar's Head signage is still in place behind the counter, which is tucked in one front corner of a 24-hour grocery. Seating is limited to a single small table.
Shown below: "duck noodles" with soup ($5), restorative on a drizzly afternoon; and the sole dessert on this occasion, a dense wedge of coconut jelly ($2.50).
