THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mission 261 Restaurant Review

: Only in L.A. would you not be surprised to find shark's fin soup inside an adobe building. Mission 261's menu tries to live up to the splendor of the restaurant's d├ęcor with some rather exotic offerings. Abalone aficionados can choose from the Superior Yoshihama, South African and Australian varieties. They are all simply braised in oyster sauce, but their prices might shock you. A classic dish is Braised Goose Webs With Sea Cucumbers. Unusual creations include Scrambled Egg Whites with Scallops and Mango; Prawns with Fresh Lily and Greens; and Double-Boiled Sweetened Harsmar with Dates and Lotus Seed, a dessert dish. The exotic menu appears to impress westerners but the jury may still be out with the San Gabriel Valley locals who are of Chinese descent.
