A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: WONTON NOODLE IN SOUP ($7.95)
Are you “hangry”? In other words, are you currently irritable because of your gnawing hunger? If so, fill up at Asian Mix, a restaurant that is hearty, filling and can provide options — plus there’s ample parking, which will not elevate your already hunger-driven mind.
Asian Mix’s extensive menu offers colorful, savory, meaty and veggie options. The focus of the eatery is Hong Kong-based, which implements Chinese cooking with Western ideas resulting in more presentable, healthier and cleaner eating.
Whether picking up food for a pot-luck or a lunch plate to go, Asian Mix has full plates or a la carte portions ranging from duck and beef to noodles and more.
A favorite among the crowd is Crispy Skin Roasted Pork. Packed with flavor, this dish is an ideal option for both tender, soft bites and a fun, crispy twist.
Furthermore, this is a great spot to grab Roast Duck to go. Prepared every day in house, the duck can be ordered half or whole and is cooked to ensure excess fat is cooked off and the special seasoning has soaked in. The end result is a glorious, glistening masterpiece for fall-off-the-bone enjoyment.
In addition to several a la carte dishes of epic proportions, owner Daniel Leung mentions the restaurant presents weekly specials starting at just $7.50. For example, today’s special is Pork Chop Salt and Pepper, which is usually $10.50, but only $7.50 as the weekly special.
THE BEST BITES
The wonton in this warming delight is made in-house daily and brings together pork and shrimp balls wrapped in soft wonton wrap.
The Hong Kong-style noodles are specially ordered from California specifically for this wonton soup only. It is a firmer noodle that complements the soft wonton bites.
ADD IT TO THE MIX
For more tasty pleasure, this chicken-based broth soup also packs choy sum char siu pork and green onions for garnish.
