Mission Cantina’s menu is constantly evolving: One year ago, when the restaurant first opened, Danny Bowien served soft-scrambled eggs with sea urchin, beef heart ceviche, and rotisserie chicken stuffed with rice, chorizo, and pecans. But despite the restaurant’s name, the gonzo-Mexican theme has slowly gone by the wayside, and, as of late, Bowien has focused more on Asian-inspired dishes. In fact, he recently launched a Vietnamese breakfast menu, available daily from 9 to 11 a.m., with à la carte items like lamb pho, duck porridge, and broken rice with lemongrass sausage.
It’s definitely worth waking up to try — and hey, there’s Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk. Take a look:
