Mixed opens in Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill’s Mixed opens: Mixed Casual Korean Bistro has opened on East Franklin Street in Chapel Hill in the location that previously housed the Italian restaurant Tedesco’s.
The restaurant is named “Mixed” because of the rice-based Korean dish called Bibimbap that it’s serving. Customers build the dish from a choice of different vegetables, meats and sauces, and then mix everything together before eating.
There is a choice of white rice, brown rice, mid grain rice, or salad as a base; five different vegetables; proteins such as Soy-marinated sliced beef, chicken, spicy pork, or tofu; as well as sauces such as spicy Korean chili paste, black sesame dressing, and mixed miso.
The menu also includes appetizers, mixed wings, and side dishes. Mixed’s hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, call 919-929-0047.
