The fried chicken sandwich was outstanding.  How about the burger?

Mission Burger

It was pretty damn tasty.

And my burger connoisseur thinks it so, too.

The burger is a third of a pound of granulated Harris Ranch brisket, short rib, and chuck that is seared in beef fat, topped with tasty caper aioli, monterey jack and caramelized onions and served on a griddled Acme bun. It’s granulated and not ground beef, which makes the burger even tastier.  Mission Street Food’s blog describes the process of granulation in this link. Granulation is a process popularized by Michelin 3-star chef Heston Blumenthal.

Just a few notes about Mission Burger. I love salt as much as I love sugar and butter but some people may find the burger a bit salty. I actually did but I didn’t mind it at all.  Should you order fries? Absolutely.  If you’re not a lemonade person, such as myself, grab a drink at Duc Loi since they only serve mint lemonade and nothing else, not even water.  The dining area is a little snug and you may end up enjoying your burger on a milk crate.  But seriously, who cares? You’re enjoying a tasty Mission burger anyway.  And for only $8, it’s an amazing deal.  They’re even donating $1 from every burger to the San Francisco Food Bank.  And a final word, they’re open everyday except Thursday.

Mission Fried Chicken Sandwich

Today was my second trip to Mission Burger in ten days.  I have been raving about their burger ever since I discovered their clandestine operations at Duc Loi in the Mission and I promised Dennis that I’d take him there as soon as we get the chance.  Dennis is my trusted burger connoisseur, among other things, and so I was curious to know what he thinks of it.

After a hike from the Dogpatch to Dolores and back, we made a pit stop at Mission Burger for lunch today.  I was thrilled.  Dennis got their burger and fries and I, on the other hand, feasted on their new offering: the fried chicken sandwich.

Harrison free-range chicken with crispy chicken skin, pickled jalapeño, cucumber, shredded lettuce and secret sauce on an Acme roll.

It was amazing.

The sweet and hot pickled jalapeños complemented the crispy and salty fried chicken very well.  And the crispy chicken skin was a wonderful bonus.  It was a bit messy but all great fried chicken sandwiches are messy anyway!
