creative Cal-Asian a la Mission Chinese Food

Robert Lauriston | Dec 26, 2012 10:17 AM

What is the deal with the lack of more restaurants doing creative, modern Asian food in more or less the Mission Chinese vein, anyway? SF chefs have applied that balls-to-the-wall, flavor-maximizing style to various cuisines but rarely Asian. (Most of the high-end places do French-Japanese fusion, since that's how you get Michelin stars.)

In the Bay Area we have Mission Chinese, 903, Namu Gaji, Fusebox, and soon Ramen Shop. Is there anything else? Bowl'd has a few original touches but the menu's really pretty traditional.

Do any of the trucks or pop-ups make the grade?
