What’s Hot at Hot Stixx

There’s been talk about a great, new, hot restaurant. The food, service, quality and atmosphere has been said to be “hot.” What is this new restaurant everyone’s been talking about? This small, discovered gem, Hot Stixx, is located at 1921 W. Dimond Blvd. Hot Stixx is a fusion restaurant, made up of Middle Eastern food to Asian cuisine. The dishes are made original to the chefs and have their own little twists and blends of spices. Hayley Holt, a junior, tried the halibut pasta and said, “That was amazing.” Her mom and sister agreed that it was delicious. However, Holt happened to have an allergic reaction to one of the platters. She still thought the dish was delicious. Holt said, “It had a really nice feel on the side and it was pretty too.” Holt didn’t have any dislikes besides the fact it was a little pricey, but she said the quality made up for it. Holt heard about Hot Stixx through her mom’s clients and decided to check it out. Nancy Chon, a junior, said, “I’d only recommend this place to others it they had a special occasion. The dishes were expensive. I would only go back after 10 when the appetizers are half off.” Chon’s favorite dish was the coconut calamari and the dim sum appetizer. She liked the atmosphere, because the lighting was dark and created a romantic feel. She liked the food, but doesn’t think it’s worth the price. Jim Anderson, a Dimond math teacher, said he went to Hot Stixx, but didn’t eat anything. He heard about the place and really wanted to like it. However, as he walked into the restaurant the price of the menu and different food than he was used to made him leave. Anderson said, “I really wanted to like this place, but maybe it was the scallops in the pasta that threw me off guard. But mostly a $20 dollar lunch meal.” Hot Stixx is open from Tuesday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and opens again from 5 to 11 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, it’s open from 5 p.m. to midnight.
