Mission Chinese Food, San Francisco

I've been in San Francisco for years, and yet just finally made it to Mission Chinese Food. The wait is excruciating, especially since an MSG-filled scent hangs in the air and cranks your saliva glands to full blast. However, the experience is absolutely worth it. Everything is too loud: the bright red lights, the dragon decorations, the rap music, the spicy, fat-filled dishes. But you wouldn't want it any other way. Don't walk out without trying the Ma Po Tofu and Salt Cod Fried Rice. Bring a gaggle of friends (Chinese is always better with a bigger group) and do fight for the leftovers, which taste even more incredible when reheated the next morning.
