Mission Chinese, San Francisco

mission chinese food


Yes, this is our delivery Chinese food, and it’s amazing! When we lived outside the city we would drive in just to eat at Mission Chinese. Now we can get it delivered! It was the first takeout we ordered after we moved.

Mission Chinese has locations in San Francisco and New York. The San Francisco location is on Mission street between 18th and 19th streets. Look for a yellow Lung Shan Restaurant sign. We prefer to just order it in. Some of our favorites include:


Grandma Zhou’s Pork Dumplings
5 dumplings with pea tendrils, garlic chives, ham broth

Chonqing Chicken Wings
explosive chili, crispy beef tripe – spicy

Note: When we went to Chicago’s NEXT restaurant during their Chinese menu, they served squab in paper bags covered in Szechuan pepper. It’s a unique pepper that has a spicy tingling or buzzing sensation. These wings have szechuan pepper and that same sensation! Clayton refuses to eat any offal, so we just order it sans tripe. Check out how to make these wings yourself here.
