SF Transplant

I agree with the first post ... the food is terribly disappointing. When Mission CF opened in NYC I was thrilled that food from SF would now be here, but they are SUPER disappointing on this coast. Our food wasn't too salty - it was too HOT (and we can handle heat). I don't know if they are trying to overcompensate to make a name for themselves here, but if that's the case, the name they are making is not a good one. Honestly, they need to find a comfortable medium with their heat - not every dish needs to be on fire. Honestly, it made me want some normal NYC Chinese food the next day to make up for the total bummer of the night before. So why two stars? Because the flavors have the potential to be great, they just need to work it out.
