Mission Chinese Food is the work of chefs Danny Bowien and Anthony Myint - started as a food truck which ran on Thursdays in San Francisco the pop-up has since moved on to a Chinese venue in SF where the kitchen is shared with the current take-away owers (pictured above) and more recently a place in New York.
It's an authentic movement that sees the team add modern twists to Chinese food - something Bowien refers to as Americanized Oriental.
They have built up a strong reputation for their top quality food and for their philanthropic work in supporting charities and their local community.
In this video the pair explain their story and how in a relatively short amount of time they've gone from selling tacos from the back of a truck to speaking to some of the world's greatest chefs in the audience at Mad Food Camp.
