SAN FRANCISCO | Mission Chinese Food opened in 2011 and was considered by many to be one of the best new restaurants in the US. Today, the restaurant with an unlikely back story is on the list of “must eat” venues that every visitor to San Francisco writes up. It started when restaurateur and chef Anthony Myint opened a pop-up restaurant out of the the kitchen of old school Chinese restaurant Lung Shan. He teamed up with Danny Bowien who converted the restaurant into a Sichuan spot with a separate menu to Lung Shan, which eventually became the entire operation.

From the street, there’s nothing to indicate that Mission Chinese food is here and when you walk inside it’s all very nondescript – Formica tables, simple decorations, and low red lighting. Service is efficient and abrupt and it all seems like any other standard Chinese restaurant. Then you’re handed the menu, and you realise that standard this place is anything but.

The menu, which was updated in 2015 by Bowien (who also has a Mission Chinese Food in New York City these days) features an assortment of Sichuan inspired dishes and menu items inspired by Chinese-American food. Think modern interpretation of classic dishes with an insistence on only using high quality fresh ingredients. Mapo Tofu is a silky smooth delight interlaced with tasty ground Kurobuta pork, while the hot-and-sour pork dumplings are also fantastic. The kung pao pastrami is addictively good, with slices of tender pastrami stir-fried with thin strips of potato, hot peppers, peanuts, chili oil, vinegar, and toasted ground Sichuan peppercorns. There are even Chinese burritos on the menu – we haven’t tried them yet, but have heard great things about the pork mapo and vegetarian mushroom burritios.

Drinks wise it’s a few soft drinks, including Mexican coke and Bundaberg Ginger Beer from Australia, along with a few beers, wines and cocktails.

If it’s authentic Chinese food you’re after, Mission Chinese Food isn’t the place for you, but if you enjoy good food, you won’t be disappointed.
