When the owners closed down shop around October of 2009 for personal reasons, the lamentations of disappointed patrons dotted the restaurant's profile on a number of food review websites.
Little did we know what was really going on was a complete overhaul of the old menu. After several months of dormancy, MitAsie reemerged as a full-fledged vegetarian eatery!
Read on for details on their delicious new offerings.
Pictured above is the spicy soy lemongrass chicken. For $6.95 you get a decently sized platter of juicy soy chicken, sautéed with onions and bell peppers in a savory sweet sauce. The chicken is firm, yet tender so that it satisfies your canines when you chew. The soy itself is pleasantly seasoned so that it holds its own,, even without the sauce. Finally, tiny bits of lemongrass and crushed pepper accent the glazed surfaces of these deliciously bite-sized morsels.
MitAsie's offerings are varied and affordable. If you like Downtown Huntington Beach's Bodhi Tree Cafe, you won't be disappointed with what you find here. If anything MitAsie is actually better because their seasonings are more delicate and they don't practice salt overkill on their proteins. In the near future, the owners are looking to re-revamp the menu to be strictly vegan. Let's hope they won't have to close to do it!
