Mission Street Food: The Book

The launch for McSweeney’s Insatiable imprint—its new line of food books—is Mission Street Food, a memoir and cookbook from the little restaurant that could (and the one we now know as Mission Chinese Food). There’s something synergistic about a by-the-seat-of-its-pants food-truck-to-restaurant success story being published by a similarly independently-minded book publisher—both based in the Mission District. Neither venture has ever seemed to care about making money first which has allowed them the freedom to do quirky things like, say, have a pirate theme at 826 Valencia or start a restaurant within a restaurant.
