The same family behind San Antonio’s Taipei – a family we’ve known and trusted for over 25 years – brings us the excellent MJ China Bistro in the Medical Center area, just off Huebner Rd. It’s a beautiful restaurant with all things divine in Asian cuisine, plus a little more!
The “MJ” stands for Mike and Jennifer Hu – the husband and wife team behind the Bistro. Frequent travels to and from China have allowed for a thorough understanding of authentic fare from the Far East, as well as exciting new culinary trends, which they’ve implemented here.
The focus, as always, remains on fresh, first-rate ingredients…everything from their vibrant sushi rolls to those over-the-top sake bombs! One of our faves is the Salt and Pepper Shrimp [top]. Lightly battered shrimp and scallops touch-fried to lock in tenderness, then wok-tossed in your selection of sauce (Hunan or Sesame).
Non-traditional items like MJ’s Steamed Sea Bass also impress, poached in light and flavorful broth with bits of red pepper, jalapeño and black bean:
Happy Hour does a BIG business at MJ — we highly recommend it. It runs daily from 3-6PM, with sushi rolls as low as $1 and imported beer, house wine or hot sake for just $3! CLICK HERE for the full menu.
Other Savory Standouts…
Boiled fresh green soybeans, wok-tossed in Chef’s special spicy sauce.
Crispy Spring Rolls
Pork and vegetables wrapped in thin rice paper, fried golden, served with lettuce and Chef’s special fish sauce – also known as a Vietnamese egg roll.
MJ is also a great place for private parties! Their impressive banquet room seats up to 70 people comfortably. Add a touch of elegance and Asian flare to any occasion — including any office parties this holiday season!
