The new Mission Chinese location in Bushwick is a lot to process. The neon lights in the industrial-looking dining room are constantly changing from green to blue to red, and above the small bar in the back, there are TV screens with artsy videos of people eating the restaurant’s food. There’s even a mirror in the bathroom with an electronic stream of numbers rushing across it, like something from The Matrix. While this high-energy atmosphere does remind us a little of the first location on the LES, the food isn’t at the same level yet - Mission Chinese standbys, like salt cod fried rice and kung pao pastrami, taste either bland or overly salted here. If the food gets a little closer to the very spicy, deeply flavorful dishes from the original Mission Chinese, this will be a great place for fun group dinners.
