Mission Chinese Food is set to launch July 5 at Lung Shan, long the site of charitable pop-up Mission Street Food. MSF founder Anthony Myint said he and Danny Bowien would offer 10-12 items daily, for eat-in, takeout, or delivery. "We're calling it 'Americanized Oriental food,'" Myint said via e-mail, explaining that the menu would focus on food from various regions in China, but might explore other cuisines, too. Dishes are slated to clock in between $10-$12; Myint and Bowien will donate 75 cents from each dish to the San Francisco Food Bank.
When Bowien raised the idea of Mission Chinese Food with us last month, he said the idea was to reinvigorate the tradition of Chinese-American food. He said he's already begun testing regional Chinese dishes. "Wait'll you taste our mapo tofu," he said.
