Mission Bowling Lanes
Fried Chicken and Waffles ($10)
Fried chicken, brined in citrus and fried shatter-crisp (the batter includes ground up chicken skin!) is served alongside hearty cornmeal waffles, along with housemade chile sauce (sambal, cabbage, Fresno peppers, and hot sauce) and a dollop of maple butter.
Chicken and Waffle Combo Bite
The cornmeal waffles and chile sauce push the dish decidedly into savory brunch food territory but the maple butter still gives it a rich sweetness.
Corn tortilla chips are softened slightly by tomato sauce and topped with smoked salsa, cheddar cheese, and guacamole. Three soft scrambled eggs and a serving of home fries accompany the chilaquiles (you can also add jerked pork shoulder for $4).
Loco Moco ($12)
The infamous Mission Burger (a half-pound granulated patty seared in beef fat... uh huh.) is topped with two 63-degree eggs (cooked on the flattop), and doused in gravy (a blend of veal stock and shitake mushrooms).
Loco Moco, Inside
A bed of jasmine rice soaks up the gravy-yolk-beef-juice blend.
