Fussy eaters rejoice, the fusion eatery of your dreams has opened its doors in Kingsland, bringing with it a roller coaster of flavours.
Found on the main Kingsland stretch, Mix is decked out in a hip, sultry fit out, complete with a fully stocked bar. Brought to us by Raymond Shan, a chef of 40 years, the menu is a culmination of the best of his foodie journey. A family business through and through, you’ll find yourself greeted by the lovely Nancie, Raymond’s daughter and the kitchen manager. Inspired by her father, Nancie has followed her passions working for a number of years in the industry herself.
“There’s something here for everyone,” says Nancie. “If one person feels like Chinese, one Korean food, and another European, our menu caters to all.”
No longer will deliberations of “so what are you in the mood for?’ plague us, since Mix really does have it all.
You can probably already guess our top pick…that’s right, the range of dumplings of course! Featuring the Xiao Long Bao, the pork and ginger parcel of happiness are steamed fresh and full of soup so good you’re sure to be back for round two. If prawns are your jam, the Ha Gaw is for you. These bad boys star ginormous black tiger prawn and coriander which any foodie knows is the ultimate dumpling power duo.
Some of the best in town, you’ll want to BAO down to the new foodie royalty. The roasted pork bao with pickled cucumber, coriander, and addictive hoisin sauce is one for your bao bucket list.
There’s even a dash of Korean BBQ on the menu, and boy oh boy it’s just as good as you imagine. The piping hot pork ribs are doused in an electric spicy sauce cooled off with a side of sweet apple salad—yum!
Just when you think it couldn’t get any better, Nancie and the team have ‘mixed’ up a selection of original cocktails. Our top pick is the Tokyo Tower, featuring sweet yuzu jam, Japanese sake, and soda water, this marvelous tangy concoction is a guaranteed good time. Have a sweet tooth? An ideal cheeky treat, the Causeway Bay tastes as good as it looks. Modelled to resemble a lychee, the perky pink base features raspberry soda water topped with lychee liqueur, rum, and ginger.
Speaking of sweet, their epic signature dessert is soon to be the talk of the town. Starring green tea ice cream, black sesame, and Japanese dorayaki (an epic version of a pancake), this masterpiece is flippin’ good.
So what do you get when you put quality ingredients, epic cocktails and a rad fit out? One hell of an epic Mix.
