Product description

Review

A 2011 NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE COOKBOOK
ONE OF BON APPETIT'S BEST COOKBOOKS OF 2011

"[Mission Street Food] recounts how a sui generis pop-up in a Guatemalan taco truck in San Francisco led, as these things will, to a sui generis pop-up in a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. In fact, the whole project is sui generis, including the cookbook portion of this volume. The recipes provide not just serving sizes but approximate cost, and are laid out comic-strip style, with photo panels illustrating each step. There’s even a photograph of what mayonnaise looks like when the emulsion breaks, and what to do next."
—Pete Wells, New York Times

"Hey, let's make a restaurant! That's just what Anthony and Karen did. They made history with their food cart/borrowed restaurant space, becoming both one of the country's earliest pop-ups and an experiment in culinary hospitality with a social mission. The cookbook is equally inspiring and is peppered with tasty recipes."
—Don and Samantha Lindgren, Bon Appetit

"A fun read, the food photography is alluring, and it’s nice to see a bit of life breathed into the traditional cookbook format."
The New Yorker

"Speaks to a lively time in San Francisco's food scene and it's an entertaining read and certainly on-trend—if not trend setting. Which is what Mission Street Food, in all its guises, has been since the start."
7x7

"We are lucky to have Myint and the Mission Street crew’s visions among us… and such a book to capture the experience."
San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Let’s get right to the point: Mission Street Food: Recipes and Ideas from an Improbable Restaurant by Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz is awesome. Awesome. And by that I mean: a smart, funny and incredibly inspiring read that is aesthetically pleasing, feels good in the hands and has a recipe for one of the easiest and tastiest desserts I have ever prepared: white bread, spread with butter and sugar, run under the broiler (or blow-torch) until it is brown and bubbly, and served in a pool of condensed milk and cream."
Montreal Mirror

“An amazing story. An amazing institution. And now a book that’s as creative and pioneering as its subjects. Let us hope that Mission Street Food’s uniquely American success story points the way to a brighter—and delightfully stranger—future.”
—Anthony Bourdain

Mission Street Food is an uncommonly generous read. When I finished it, I felt like I’d drained a cold can of beer at the end of a shift at the restaurant. The interplay of narrative, design, and photography is more compelling and candid than any food book I’ve ever seen; the focus on fundamental techniques and how to think in the kitchen is more truthful, accurate, and contemporary than almost any basic cookbook; in fact, the whole package—powered by the exuberance of Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz—is infectious, inspiring, something apart from the rest. This is a special book.”
—Peter Meehan, co-author of Momofuku
