BART Station:16th St. Mission (SF)
Walk Time:5 minutes
Daenerys or not, sometimes you do want an open-mouthed dragon hanging over your shoulder. In the Game of Chinese Food, Mission Chinese and its signature dragon snaking along the ceiling is a winner with subjects of San Francisco who appreciate fusion foods in a fun, colorful setting. Follow the droves of hipsters to Mission and 18th Street for this popular spot housed behind the Lung Shan Restaurant awning, two blocks down from 16th/Mission Station. Wings, mapo tofu, dumplings and modern takes on classics give salt-loving scenesters further reason to reach for a beer.
