Chef Ross Pangilinan to Open TERRACE by Mix Mix at SCP


South Coast Plaza welcomes TERRACE by Mix Mix, a new restaurant with globally inspired cuisine by chef Ross Pangilinan, scheduled to open soon.

TERRACE by Mix Mix will focus on well-priced, market-driven small plates. The cuisine will showcase Pangilinan’s eclectic style, which is influenced by French, Italian, and modern Filipino flavors, as well as his refined technique. Its wine list will have varietals by the glass and bottle as well as rotating craft beers.

The restaurant will showcase full-service dining in a beautifully designed covered terrace off the west end of Bridge of Gardens. A small wine bar, additional seating, an open kitchen and a counter offering a weekday lunch quick-service menu will be inside.

Pangilinan opened his first restaurant, Mix Mix Kitchen Bar, in downtown Santa Ana two years ago. The name “Mix Mix” is inspired by the English translation of the Filipino dessert Halo-Halo and is also a play on Pangilinan’s culinary style and Filipino-American identity. The award-winning restaurant was named best new restaurant from Orange Coast Magazine and earned the chef critical praise.

Pangilinan’s culinary journey began upon graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena. He traveled to France to work in the Michelin-starred Les Trois Marches in Versailles. Back in the U.S., he was hired as sous chef to open the critically acclaimed, fine dining Sinatra restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas. Returning to Southern California, Pangilinan worked as sous chef at the Patina flagship and became a protégé of founder chef Joachim Splichal. The Patina Group recognized his talent and named him executive chef at Leatherby’s Cafe Rouge, which is part of South Coast Plaza’s fine dining collection.

TERRACE by Mix Mix will be located on level 3 of the Crate and Barrel/Macy’s Home Store Wing,
