Asian Mix, which is tucked away beneath Safeway on South Beretania Street, is renowned for its selection of roasted meats, Asian-influenced dishes and bubble-tea drinks. It may not be out in plain view, but this hidden gem is definitely worth seeking out for your Asian-food cravings.
Of its popular roasted meats, Barbecue Pork stands out, and it’s easy to see (and taste) why.
Owner Daniel Leung explains that the daily routine for making the pork includes selecting quality meat, marinating it overnight, roasting it and, lastly, coating the pork in a honey mixture to keep the meat tender and juicy until it’s ready to serve.
Another favorite would have to be Ginger Chicken, which is poached at the perfect temperature, for just the right amount of time, and finished off in an irresistible sauce — consisting of minced green onion and ginger — that has been doused in hot oil to marry the flavors together.
Put these two in one order (Barbecue Pork and Ginger Chicken on Rice, $9.50) and you have the perfect meal, showcasing Asian Mix’s top-sellers.
You also may choose from the restaurant’s list of vegetarian items, noodle dishes and soups, including tasty Roasted Duck with Funn Noodle Soup, especially tempting when you’re in need of some good ol’ comfort food.
Aside from picking up food from Asian Mix for a quick, quality meal, the beloved eatery also caters. Choose Asian Mix to supply the fare at your next family, work or friendly get-together.
