From flatbreads on a food truck to a full-fledged restaurant, Mission Street Food is a tale told in the words of its two heroes, chef Anthony Myint and his wife, Karen Leibowitz

Wonderful idea for cookbook, as it's also part business manual, memoir, critical theory, cookbook. Fun photography and graphic layout. From flatbreads on a food truck to a full-fledged restaurant, Mission Street Food is a tale told in the words of its two heroes, chef Anthony Myint and his wife, Karen Leibowitz. It is the story of a start-up like no other, set on the streets (mainly one street) of San Francisco, transforming a mom-and-pop Guatemalan snack cart into a thriving and charitable food experience.

Mission Street Food is a restaurant. But it's also a charitable organization, a taco truck, a burger stand, and a clubhouse for inventive cooks tucked inside an unassuming Chinese take-out place. Along with stories and recipes, you'll find an idealistic business plan, a cheeky manifesto, and thoughtful essays on issues ranging from food pantries to fried chicken.

Mission Street Food isn’t quite a cookbook but it’s not not a cookbook either. Like the legendary pop-up restaurant it’s named after, Mission Street Food won’t appeal to those with conventional expectations. It has recipes, yes, but more than half the book is taken up with the well-told and fascinating story of how San Francisco’s Mission Street Food, a pop-up restaurant-within-a restaurant, was birthed, morphed, grew siblings and morphed again. It’s a compelling, completely San Francisco story, one that I read like a novel, propped up in bed way past my bedtime.

Over half of this book is the back story on the couple that started this restaurant and how it came to be. It was interesting for the first 10 or so pages but it was a lot of overkill. The recipes are interesting - A bit reminiscent of Momofuku (which is why I bought it in the first place) but not as complicated and involved. Lots of Asian and fusion recipes (duh) and plenty of pictures which I appreciate. However, in the end I would probably pass on this book.

This is the barebone way to go into business. If you want to read this book you will find it to be fun but scary. I admit this book teaches a lot of lessons about starting and running your own business. The guest chefs and staff that were mentioned in the book is nice too. The other lesson it has to teach us in this book you better like your employees and the business because you will be spending a lot of time with them running the business also the unadulterated humor in the book is shown through. Who says you can't have fun at work? Mission street food changed California for the good and I hope more people can think this way in the future. I am sure these people struggled financal wise as everyone does in any form of business. I wish they would have stayed a longer amount of time but at least with the book there legacy can live on to future foodies.
