Deal Food, Restaurants & Dining Spotlight Fara Illich March 25, 2010

Jack and Ben Juang are going to change the way you think about quick Chinese food.
The owners of Hsin Cafe, the newly opened Asian restaurant located on the campus of ASU Downtown[Taylor and First St.], the Juang family has been operating quick Chinese eateries in Colorado and greater Phoenix for over 25 years. In addition to offering priced-right bowls [$4.99-$5.50], chow mein meals [$4.99-$6.99] and signature dishes [$5.99-$8.50] like orange chicken, beef and broccoli, pepper steak and mushroom chicken, the Juang’s cook up a variety of entree salads, rotating side dishes, appetizers and soups.
Hsin_Cafe“These are Americanized versions of our traditional Chinese family recipes,” said Ben Juang [picture at left with brother Jack and store manager Chu-Kuei Ho]. “So far the response has been very good.”
One early menu favorite is the beef stew bowl [$5.99]  which features chunks of meat so tender and so flavorful you’ll swear your wallet should be lighter than it is. It’s really unlike anything I’ve ever tasted and as filling as the day is long. Other hearty bowls include teriyaki chicken, curry chicken (Ben says to think more Indian-style curry than Thai curry) and Chinese BBQ pork.
Hsin, which in Chinese means “prosper,” is the first name of Ben and Jack’s father and their restaurant is a tribute to their parents’ dedication to the family. Certainly, serving up great food at reasonable prices is a great way to prosper in a crowded Downtown dining marketplace.
