Burma Superstar, a popular San Francisco restaurant that voluntarily closed over Labor Day weekend following an E. coli outbreak in mid-August, has snagged a coveted spot on the Michelin Bib Gourmand list for 2014. It was also listed for 2013. The outbreak reportedly sickened at least a dozen people, the majority of whom ate at the Clement Street restaurant on Aug. 16 or 17. Five were hospitalized, and one of them developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a potentially fatal kidney disease associated with severe E. coli infections. All of those sickened were later discharged, and no new related cases have surfaced, said Dr. Tomás J. Aragón, health officer for the city and county of San Francisco. This summer’s E. coli outbreak was the first such reported incident in connection with Burma Superstar in its 17 years of operation, according to owner Desmond Tan. The Richmond District location is one of three Burma Superstar outlets he owns in the Bay Area; the others are in Oakland and Alameda. “We are doing everything we can to ensure that an incident of this type never occurs again,” Tan said in a statement. “We have and continue to adhere to the highest food safety health practices, including having DPH officials provide food safety seminars to our staff. Additionally, we have always utilized vendors that provide only the best ingredients.” Michelin’s Bib Gourmand awards are given for so-called “value” restaurants serving two courses and a glass of wine (or dessert) for $40 or less before tax and tip. They are named for Bibendum, the nickname for the company’s longtime logo, the Michelin Man. Burma Superstar is one of 83 Bay Area/Wine Country restaurants given Bib Gourmand status for 2014, up from 70 last year. The highly prized (and very lucrative) Michelin stars will soon be announced, although eateries named to the Bib Gourmand list are not eligible for the one, two or three stars Michelin gives out each year to top restaurants as determined by the company’s anonymous reviewers.
