Street Asian Food, Buffalo’s latest Thai-Burmese hybrid restaurant, plans to open Oct. 1.
The restaurant, at 516 Elmwood Ave., was last Peking Chinese Restaurant. The small space has about 20 seats for dining in, and will not offer alcohol.
Street Asian Food’s owner, Than Oo, is from Burma. He worked at Sun Restaurant, Buffalo’s original Thai-Burmese restaurant, for several years, he said.
So it’s hardly surprising that Street Asian Food’s offerings will be familiar to Sun regulars.
There’s Thai curries, in green, red and Panang ($10-$16), and Burmese curries in chicken and beef ($12-$14). There’s also a slate of Thai rice and noodle stir-fries ($12-$18).
Sushi wraps and rolls, in black or white rice, are offered in a myriad of combinations ($5-$15).
Thai beef salad ($12) and papaya salad ($9-$12) are joined by Burmese tea leaf and ginger salads ($7).
Soups include Burmese coconut chicken noodle soup ($12), Vietnamese pho ga chicken noodle soup ($10), and Thai tom kha, coconut lemongrass-lime soup ($8-$15).
House specialties include vegetarian crispy eggplant ($14), roast duck ($22) and one holdover from the prior establishment: General Tso’s chicken ($14).
Hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-midnight Friday, Saturday, and 4 p.m.-10 p.m. Sunday. Phone: 886-4001.
