Mission Chinese serves bar none some of the best, and most numbingly spicy, Chinese food in the city. They categorize themselves as “weird Chinese” and it definitely feels weird to see pastrami on a Chinese menu, but good weird - like when Emma Watson tries to do an American accent. It’s ideal for big group dinners, with an easy to share, and relatively inexpensive menu. Any spot that has thrice cooked bacon is on the right side of history, but watch out for the Chonqing Chicken Wings - they’re silent but deadly.
