Located on South Beretania Street, Asian Mix has been serving a variety of Asian and local flavors to patrons for nearly a decade. Known for its roasted meats, Chinese a la carte orders, local flavor plate lunches, and ramen and soup bowls, the restaurant also has cooked up something special for Chinese New Year.
Served only for five days from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2 is Asian Mix’s New Year “Jai” ($12.95). It is made with five different types of mushrooms, water chestnuts, carrots, wombok and dried tofu skin. Most of the ingredients in this special dish are known to symbolize good luck. While this dish is offered for a limited time, there are other local favorites customers can indulge in.
Try the eatery’s Roasted Meat Plate ($11.95) served with rice, vegetables and your choice of two meats — barbecue pork, barbecue spareribs, roasted pork, roasted duck and cold ginger chicken.
“We’re known for our roast meat items and they sell out in the afternoon,” says owner Daniel Leung. “The quality is excellent, and so is the quantity, as the plate is big enough to serve two people sometimes.”
Keeping up with quality ingredients is the restaurant’s Singapore-Style Rice Noodles ($9.50) using a special rice noodle from Taiwan and yellow curry from India. Together the ingredients are mixed with shredded barbecue pork, shrimp, raw and green onions, bean sprouts and eggs. The curry sauce is mild, although customers can adjust and add more depending on their spice tolerance.
Asian Mix is currently only available for takeout.
