Terrace by Mix Mix

Terrace by Mix Mix is owned by one of South Coast Plaza’s most highly acclaimed chefs, Ross Pangilinan. His internationally inspired cuisine features small plates influenced by French, Italian and modern Filipino flavors, served in a lush terrace setting.

Pangilinan has been recognized by the Michelin Guide and was named “Chef of the Year” by the Orange County Business Journal.  Terrace by Mix Mix has been lauded as one of “Orange County’s Hottest Restaurants” by Eater LA and received “Best New Restaurant” honors from Orange Coast Magazine and Riviera Orange County.

Signature dishes include albacore tostada, goat cheese toast with seasonal fruit, pork cheek adobo with garlic fried rice and house-made pastas.  Weekend brunch—and the crispy duck leg confit with blackberry French toast—attracts an abundance of foodie fans.

“Giant birds of paradise, fan palms, taro and lush staghorn and bird’s nest ferns create a tropical oasis on the third-floor terrace at the edge of South Coast Plaza’s Bridge of Gardens”
–Brad A. Johnson, Orange County Register
