Convenience, great value and, most of all, delicious food. That’s what Asian Mix owner Daniel Leung strives to bring his customers.
Leung has been in the business since 1983, and many of his cooks have been with him since his last restaurant, Panda Cuisine. It’s his knowledge of food — what works best — and the restaurant business that enables him to provide just that via Asian Mix.
He points to the restaurant’s location and the skill of those chefs who provide a quick and easy way for diners to get their food and be on their way.
Judging by the raves of Asian Mix’s fans, Leung’s plan is working. The list of favorite plates is long and varied. Popular choices include the Roast Duck Hong Kong Style ($28/ whole duck, $14.50/half duck), roast pork ($14.50/pound) and char siu ($14/pound).
“Those are really popular items,” he says.
Other must-have offerings include the Mongolian Beef ($11.95), Kung Pao Chicken ($10.95), Lamb with Leeks ($13.95), and Pork Chop with Salt and Pepper ($10.95).
Among the favorite noodle menu items is Singapore Rice Noodles ($8.95) that feature special-ordered noodles from Taiwan and a special yellow Indian curry. Choice noodle soup dishes include the Special Won Ton Noodle ($8.95) and the Roast Duck Noodle Funn ($10.95).
Asian Mix’s Roast Duck Hong Kong Style is one of Leung’s personal favorites: “I would order roast duck or roast pork on rice,” he says.
Diners can get a plate that offers two choices of roast meats atop a bed of rice and choy sum on the side ($10.95).
He also offers one entrée each week at a special price, and it’s always something that Leung knows is a customer favorite. This week’s item is Cold Ginger Chicken ($7.95).
“Convenience, reasonable prices and quality. If I’m able to provide these, I’m happy.”
