    Very casual place with amazing food. Sit back and relax and let the chef take you on a gastro tour! Quite an experience! BYOB ( $10 corkage for a 6pk beer or $12 for a bottle of wine).

    This small resto is so Mission. Small + low-key, you can talk to chef Manny who makes those innovative bites. Come with an open mind and an empty belly and you'll have a great meal.

    4 courses tasting menu is $30 now, but still totally worth it. Go enjoy a very intimate and interesting experience.

    Amazing tasting menu for $30. Call as soon as you know you want to eat there. Limited seating, usually fills up days in advance.

    Prix fixe menu at an affordable price. Food is adventurous and the setting is unpretentious. Wait times can be an issue due to the size of the restaurant.

    If you are not in a hurry, sit back, get the tasting menu and have a few laughs with Manny, the artist of the Mission.

    I really want to like this place but the food is... way below average. Not only the food aren't very flavourful, all meat in their dishes have this weird mushy texture :(
