Mission Burger

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.
