The opening menu consists of 11 items, priced from $4-15, with the majority falling in the $8-9 range. Peking duck "Chinito," a rice noodle-wrapped and stuffed donut that was first served at the last Mission Street Food, will be joined by a vegan option (one of three on the menu, including MSF mainstay "Lung Shan's Vegan Delight" soup), made with roasted mushrooms and braised turnips. Chicken will be available in whole or half portions, roasted in Hainan ginger and burnt wine sauces, while Myint calls Bowien's fiery ma po tofu "soon-to-be world famous." Other fare includes an Islamic lamb hot pot, braised Mongolian beef cheek, and salt cod fried rice.Maybe we should think about freezing our brats and buns. Read a bit more at the Mission Street Food website, including an parsing by Anthony Myint of his use of the word "oriental."
