There aren't a lot of tables at Mission Chinese and it was pretty packed when we got here so we decided to get the ma po tofu to go. If you order to go, head to the back counter and someone will take your order...More

Mission Chinese opened about 3 years ago as a pop-up sharing space with a non-descript Chinese restaurant. The pop-up took over the space and is now a regular fixture; not that you’d really be able to tell. If you focus on any one aspect you’d...More
