Snap: No Pictures at Yamo

Inside Yamo. By Keli Dailey.


This little Burmese hole-in-the-wall will feed you $6 tea leaf salad, $3 spring rolls, $6 mango chicken with sticky rice from a cooker.

And the tight elbow-to-chopsticks, 10-seat environs is one of Yamo’s greatest selling points: That stranger on the stool next to you is just a friend you haven’t met yet.

But you will not win over the women who cook and assemble your quick plates if you try to document your experience.

“No pictures!” the cook took a break from her war with chilies and stove fire to reprimand one eater.
