Mee and Greet – Palms

Seemingly missing a “t” in its name, Mee and Greet opened a couple of weeks ago in a Palms mini mall. From the people behind Humble Potato, Mee and Greet serves a pan-Asian mix of Taiwanese, Indonesian and Vietnamese dishes in a hipster setting, right down to a black and white photo of the Beastie Boys on the wall.

This tiny restaurant does have a Happy Hour from 4pm-7pm on weekdays, knocking off a couple of dollars on beers on tap and wine, along with a limited bar bites menu. Taking a look at the bar bites menu, I was tempted to just say, “Yes, please.” Luckily my husband, who takes a more restrained approach to eating, was the voice of reason.

Mee and Greet has a great selection of beers on tap, mostly from California, including Smog City and Modern Times (pictured below).

Since it was Happy Hour, something fried was in order – the turmeric fried chicken winning over the garlic parmesan fries.  The chicken was crispy on the outside, with the tiniest bit of heat.

For added spice, there was a chili ketchup for dipping. The wings were decent, though as my husband would say “not life-changing” – at least not enough for him to forsake his pesco-vegetarian and devour the plate.

Nasi goreng, Indonesian fried rice, is only offered during happy hour. Cooked with sweet soy sauce and chiles, the nasi goreng was spicier than its Chinese counterpart, topped with a fried egg.

There’s the money shot…

A cucumber salad came with it, to help temper the heat and add some contrasting textures.

Overall, our first visit was encouraging, whetting my appetite to explore more of the menu (Mad for Garlic, I’ll be back for you). Let’s just say, I was happy to meet and greet Mee and Greet.
