Tucked away in the Eastern corner of Chinatown (be sure not to confuse E. Broadway with Broadway), this outpost of Mission Chinese is actually the second take on the concept and it’s much more dressed-up than the first (for one, there’s a proper kitchen in the basement rather than a tiny galley situation separated from diners by a thin sheet of plexiglass). The food is just as quirky and great: Steamed oat noodles, a perfect duck wrapped in lotus leaf, and anchovies, pickled in chili and served on flatbread are favorites.
