Here we are again, checking out another new-to-us restaurant experience in Legacy Hall at Plano’s newest and greatest development Legacy West in our weekly series, “Exploring Legacy Hall, One Bite at a Time.” This week we are stopping by Red Stix Yakitori & Banh Mi, where Chef Uno is tempting us with the sight, smell and taste of Asian street food.
Chef Uno Immanivong creates these bowls or sandwiches in styles that she learned in her childhood Each hand-crafted bowl or sandwich is finished with a yakitori stick.
The sticks are threaded with morsels of chicken, pork, or steak and grilled over binchotan charcoal. We grab a handful of sticks, submerge them in an umami-rich, silky marinade, and then put them straight onto the grill. Our grillmasters vigorously fan them until the coals hiss, flames spark, smoke puffs and the meat quickly cooks to a juicy, charred perfection. The sticks are nestled on top of rice/noodle/salad bowl or sandwich that our guests have curated with layers of fresh vegetables, pickled daikons, and herbs
The theme of the space REd Stix inhabits, plays off the food hall’s cuisine, displaying a simple and modern look with raw wood, concrete, steel, modified shipping containers, exposed ducts, and pipes.
Here’s what folks are saying about these wonderful bowls of Asain streetfood. Who’s to argue with these satisfied customers?
