Mix Mix is a bistro in Santa Ana. Ross Pangilinan—who previously dazzled Costa Mesa theater patrons with Leatherby’s Cafe Rouge for seven years—has created Mix Mix, a magnum opus in Little Sparrow’s old space on Third and Main. The most important and noticeable departure from his Cafe Rouge days is that Pangilinan is now able to offer substantial discounts on his food. The “Snacks” menu is marked down by $2 during weekday happy hour. But the best deal is the three- or four-item prix fixe, which can save you upward of 20 percent compared to ordering à la carte. When you opt for the four-course prix fixe, you must do the hangar steak as the main entrée: a sublimely tender and properly seasoned beef, cooked and sauced exactingly, served with a sculpted scoop of a tangy shallot marmalade and the most buttery mashed potatoes, which are sprinkled with scallions and crispy bits of bacon.
