Merchant of the Week: Xie Xie

Angelo Sosa and a sandwich from Xie Xie

Calling all Top Chef fans! This season while you’re watching chefs duke it out in the kitchen, you can actually get a taste of their food delivered right to your door. How? You can order from contestant Angelo Sosa’s restaurant Xie Xie on!

From the very first episode fans could tell that Angelo was a forced to be reckoned with as he won the first quick fire and challenge and claimed, “Whoever is going to go after me, there’s gonna be blood on the floor. It’s gonna be war.” This competitive energy and culinary confidence is not coming out of left field. Angelo is recognized in the industry for his powerful flavors, unique flavor combinations and contemporary yet refined skills.

Now back to the reason why we’re all jumping out of our seats – you can order his food from Xie Xie and pretend to have your own judges table right at home. Xie Xie, pronounced “shay- shay”, meaning thank-you in Mandarin, offers out-of-this world Vietnamese sandwiches. You might be thinking that with Top Chef fame and Angelo’s status, Xie Xie is among the ranks of restaurants your dying to try, but are tough on the wallet. No the case! Xie Xie offers affordable food, perfect for a quick lunch or a tasty late night bite.

The sandwich prices range from $7.00 to $10.50 and are big, juicy and delicious. One of the 7$7.00options is the Vegetarian Sandwich consisting of charred vegetables and pickled carrots. Splurging with an additional three dollars leaves you with a more hearty option, the Vietnamese BBQ Beef Sandwich. To compliment the already delectable BBQ beef is a basil mayo and carrot kimchee. Sounds like something Padma would like, right?

To finish off your meal, try one of the restaurant’s dessert, which were featured in Adam Platt’s Where to Eat 2010, Best Desserts. The desert that made the list and will win your hearts as well is the 1000 Year Old Ice Cream Sandwich. The name just screams delicious but the actual final product, is a play on an Ancient Chinese delicacy with a dark caramel center and a chocolate cookie crust for only $5.00!

So the next time you’re watching Top Chef and feel your stomach rumbling (it happens to us, too) don’t settle for anything less than the real deal. Get a taste of what’s happening on screen with an order from Xie Xie on!
