NYC – 2/26/16 – Mission Cantina

It has been quite a while since I’ve been to Mission Cantina and I must admit it will probably be a while until I return again. First our server completely disappeared after taking our drink order and was finally replaced by someone else. And then we were basically pushed out the door the second we finished eating. I can’t help but feel that they are trying a bit too hard to fulfill a LES dive aesthetic. I have no issues with the concept of that but at some point certain dishes, such as the guacamole, did not even look appetizing.

I must admit I love the chandelier and the juxtaposition with the neon menu.
 Special of the day and it was fantastic
 Crab rangoons
Broccoli oyster sauce
 General Tso’s chicken
