  • Lunch special comes with a beverage and no crazy line.

Until now, the main reason to visit Mission Chinese Food during lunch was the lack of a crazy wait. But now there's another more delicious reason: lunch specials.

For $10 you get a beautiful buttermilk- and koji-brined fried chicken sandwich nestled in between a soft Acme roll that's slathered with tonkatsu mayo on one side, burnt cara cara chili marmalade on the other, and topped with shredded savoy cabbage and pickled shallots. It's served with a side of bread and butter pickles to help you cut the richness with some tartness. But the cherry on top: you also have your choice of a Tsingtao, coke, or ginger beer. All. For. Ten. Dollars. Did I mention there's no line?

The chicken sandwich will be the lunch special for "a couple weeks" and will be rotated with other surprises. Rumor has it there may be a ramen in the near future.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
