With five skilled cooks in the kitchen standing by to prepare each order as it comes in, Asian Mix is able to craft delicious, freshly made selections without the long wait times typically found at sit-down restaurants.
Asian Mix continues to bolster its reputation for serving up a multitude of tastes and flavors from around the Pacific Rim coupled with speedy, stellar customer service. Diners receive the quickness and convenience of a fast-food restaurant, while not having to sacrifice quality as meals are prepared to order with fresh ingredients.
Situated conveniently at the corner of Beretania and Piikoi streets, on the ground level below Safeway, Asian Mix serves up top-notch menu items with plentiful portions at affordable prices.
“We have plenty of free parking, and guests can pick something up before they get on the freeway to go home, or head back through town,” adds owner Daniel Leung. “We believe that we’re the most reasonable place in town and offer excellent portions. You won’t be disappointed.”
Leung notes that some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes are influenced by Northern Chinese cooking styles and techniques, while Pacific Rim flavors stand out as bold spices are used to build flavor profiles. Barbecue Pork & Ginger Chicken on Rice ($9.50) is prepared like cuisine one would find in Hong Kong. Diners also can choose from Honey Roasted Spare Ribs and Roast Duck, which are prepared in-house and featured in Asian Mix’s eye-catching showcase.
With the wet, cool weather Hawaii has seen of late, Asian Mix has diners covered with an array of hot, flavorful soups, including Special Wonton Noodle in Soup ($6.95), a top-seller that incorporates thin noodles with shrimp-and-pork wontons. The soup’s noodles offer the perfect taste and texture and are served in a tasty chicken and vegetable broth. Miso Ramen ($9.50) is a heartier soup choice featuring locally made noodles from Sun Noodle along with char siu pork imported from Japan and a rich soup base that is prepared in just a few minutes after ordering.
Customers also may choose to build their own Asian Mix Plate for lunch (available from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) with a choice of side dish and varieties of entrees ($5.75 for one choice, $7.45 for two choices and $8.95 for three choices).
Leung notes that multiple entree selections are available each day for mix plate combos — including the popular Orange Chicken and Beef Broccoli — and customers are able to order and go in a matter of minutes.
Party trays also are available at Asian Mix, and are perfect for any event, ranging from business functions to birthday parties and holiday celebrations. Call the restaurant at 521-1688 for menu options and to place an order.
