Mission Street Food had another busy night in its second week. We got a little faster, but we also had more people, so the line was still pretty long. I’ve come up with some ideas for speeding things up, and I’m looking forward to trying them out next week. I think we can shorten the wait time by 50%, but given that we’ve been opening the door to a line of 30+ people, it seems like some waiting may be unavoidable, especially early on. Incidentally, wait times were under 10 minutes after 10:30.
Overall, this is uncharted territory, and maybe part of the fun is the “only-in-the-Mission” feeling. So thanks for your patience and enthusiasm for the food. I also want to make a few menu-related announcements:
a. in response to positive feedback, we’re going to make the Asian Pear Slaw a semi-permanent offering.
b. The potatoes in the King Trumpet will be a little less salty in the future (so feel free to add bacon).
c. I wasn’t fully satisfied with the cookies baked earlier in the day, so next week the dessert will be brownies (hopefully involving molten chocolate).
