Prepare Thyself: Mission Chinese Food Closing for Most of June


Interior of Lung Shan/Mission Chinese Food.

You have one week to get your tingly lamb noodle soup, Westlake porridge, ma po tofu, and Szechuan pickle fix because ~MISSION CHINESE FOOD~ will be closed from June 1st-June 23rd (or thereabouts). The entire Lung Shan and Mission Chinese Food crew (dishwashers included) are going to China together, visiting the Lung Shan owners’ hometown (they haven’t been home in five years). I’m trying to coax chef Danny Bowien to write a trip recap for me when they return, fingers crossed. (I wish I could document the trip—it’s quite the unique story.)
