Why Mission Chinese Food Is the Best American Chinese Restaurant Ever

When Danny Bowien does a cookbook tour, you expect the unexpected. He let MUNCHIES tag along to the LA release party for “The Mission Chinese Food Cookbook” for a ridiculous night of food and punk rock. Hosted by Kris Yenbamroong at Night+Market in West Hollywood, we were treated to dishes by guest chefs Andy Ricker (Pok Pok), Chad Robertson (Tartine), and Jessica Koslow (Sqirl). And if that wasn’t enough, the night ended with a face-melting performance by Danny’s band NARX! with Chris Conley (Saves the Day) and Geoff Rickly (Thursday, No Devotion).
