My dad used to work in San Francisco as an accountant. His favorite Chinese restaurant was Ming's on Mission Street (I think it used to be on 14th and Mission or 22nd and Mission). When I was little he would take my mom, sister, and me at that restaurant. That restaurant was a two-story building. The second story is where the bathroom was. One of my fond memories was going upstairs looking down at the open kitchen. It was cool to see how the cooks cooked the dishes. One of the other fond memories was my dad's favorite dish at that restaurant - Korean Chicken, which had a thick sweet soy sauce hard and crispy breading on the chicken wings. The sauce also has numerous chunks of diced garlic, which helped the amora. Since the breading was thick it was able to maintain its crispiness with the sauce. I assume since Korean Wings was an Americanized Chinese dish I would see this dish at other Chinese restaurants such as items as beef broccoli, sweet and sour pork, Mongolian beef, and General's Tso chicken. I could never find Korean Chicken at any Chinese restaurant that has Americanized items. So I believe the Korean Chicken was a specialty at Ming's. About ten years ago the Ming's I knew on Mission ceased to exist. So I never thought I would experience eating the Korean Chicken I experienced growing up again. Around that I passed by Mission Hunan Restaurant by accident. There's a dance studio I go to on Thursday nights that is about several blocks away from the 16th Street/ Mission Bart Station. About one block away from that Bart station is Mission Hunan Restaurant. When I first entered I looked at the menu and noticed the item Korean Chicken. These wings brought back great memories as they were the Korean Chicken I had at Ming's. There was something about that black, brown sauce. On my taste buds I can taste a some hot pepper oil and brown sugar. I believe to thicken the sauce there is some cornstarch. There's a concern that a heavily breaded chicken wing could be dry. The Korean Chicken at Mission Hunan Restaurant is moist. Everyone has a guilty pleasure of an Americanized Chinese dish. Mine are the Korean Wings at Mission Hunan Restaurant. About a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday after Father's Day I came here to eat with my usual item Korean Chicken. I also had char siu (BBQ pork) over rice. Char siu is lately becoming another Chinese dish I like. The char siu at Mission Hunan Restaurant doesn't have the burnt ends but a moist meat with a sweet, fatty texture I like. My rating is based upon that one dish - the Korean Chicken as I can't find this dish anywhere else. Lately the hipster scene is going to Korean restaurants to have some soy garlic wings. I believe the Korean Chicken at Mission Hunan Restaurant are better than any wings at a Korean restaurant. Maybe those wings at the Korean restaurants maybe more authentic than the Korean Chicken at Mission Hunan Restaurant. However I've had the soy garlic wings at the Korean restaurants and they don't taste half as good as the Korean Chicken at Mission Hunan Restaurant. If you are craving for wings at a Korean restaurants I recommend to skip those restaurants and head to Mission Hunan Restaurant for some Korean Chicken.

I was walking down Mission Street, enjoying the street scene and looking for a place to eat. I stumbled upon Mission Hunan and quite enjoyed the food. The sign in the window said the lunch special was vegetarian chow mein and pepper fish fillets, along with soup of the day, all for only $6.88. I was in. I didn't even look at the menu, just asked the waitress for the special when she seated me. She brought soup right out to me. It looked like egg drop soup, but had a lot of corn, a lot of celery, and even a piece of tomato in it. It wasn't bad, but didn't offer a lot of flavor. After about ten minutes, the waitress brought out a huge plate of food. It was piping hot: I could tell it had just been prepared. I usually prefer rice when I eat Asian food, but the chow mein noodles were fine. There were slices of cooked onions mixed with the noodles, along with what I think was bok choy and a few broccoli florets. I have no idea what kind of fish I was served, but it was breaded and fried, but not greasy. It was also peppery, as the menu board promised. The fish flesh was tender, white, and flaky. Overall, I enjoyed the food and it really filled me up. I could have totally made two meals out of what I was served, but I don't think fried fish really heat up well later. I suppose I could have saved the noodles and some vegetables for later, but it was good enough to eat it all in one sitting. I was less impressed with the service at Mission Hunan. After delivering my food, no one checked on me until I was brought my check at the end of the meal. I really could have used more water, but no one offered any. I would eat here again, but if attentive service is important to you, this might restaurant may not be to your liking.

Wanted some Chinese food before dawn in a hurry, but was hesitated to try this dinner after seeing the review. To my surprise, food tasted fine and quality was good. Only the steamer dish was prepared in a hurry and not really steamed, but the waitress has warned us probably those dishes would take too much of their kitchen time during busy hour. The good side is the food quantity, huge portion can feed a hungry guy easily. Very good value of money.

We ordered a number of dishes from Mission Hunan last night and with one exception, they were uniformly tasteless. The meat in the Mo Shu Pork was full of gristle and I couldn't chew it; the hoisin sauce was runny and flavorless. The Kung Pao chicken (marked with one red pepper for heat) was completely without heat or any other flavor. We didn't eat it. The beef with broccoli was ok, but again, without taste. The hot spiced string beans were indeed hot, though the beans themselves were rather big. I eat Chinese food often and cook it myself. This was the worst Chinese meal I have ever had.
