Mix 'n Munch: Cereal plus Grilled Cheese, but Why?

New, 19 comments

Cereal meets grilled cheese at Mix 'n Munch, but why? Let's start with the owners, Heather Apraku plus her husband Abraham, and Heather's sister Kimberly Lee and her husband Bryan Woo. So right off the bat this is a family affair. Heather and Kimberly grew up in South Pasadena and all four attended South Pas High School. Therefore, all parties involved are very familiar with the neighborhood and aspire to provide the city with a unique dining experience, based on classic comfort favorites that are affordable. Heather elaborates saying,
"When we first thought of opening a cereal bar, we wanted to offer an additional menu item that was simple and delicious. To us, it was a no-brainer to offer another classic food item that we believe most people grew up eating, and never really stopped loving, the grilled cheese sandwich. Instead of just one or two types of grilled cheese, we wanted to continue with our theme of customizable food and provide a variety of cheeses (American, Cheddar, Muenster, Gruyere etc), breads (Whole Wheat, White, Shepherds etc) and additional toppings (bacon, caramelized onions, etc) for people to choose from.

Our cereal bar will consist of approximately 30 varieties of cereal, 20 mix-ins and several milk options. We hope to accommodate all taste buds and diets by offering cereals ranging from the super sweet to the super healthy and everything in between. Our mix-ins will be along the same lines ranging from fresh fruit and ground flax to Oreos and chocolate sprinkles In addition to whole, 2% and non-fat milk, we will also offer lactaid, soy milk and rice milk. Other items such as homemade tomato soup, fresh oatmeal and yogurt parfaits will be available. We are still in the process of finalizing our menu."
