Hott Stixx’s native Alaskan chef Mike Dodge draws from international influences as he crafts innovative breakfast and brunch menus brimming with seasonal and local ingredients. The eatery’s appetite-awakening dishes have earned praise from KTUU.com, and the establishment was declared Most Original Restaurant by the Anchorage Press. Dining duos blink sleep from their eyes to gaze upon a buddha bowl’s any-style eggs lounging on jasmine rice alongside pork belly, daikon sprouts, bok choy, and fresh Alaskan bean sprouts. The smoked salmon skillet meshes savory asparagus, chevre cheese, and fresh dill; sweeter offerings salute the sun with options such as sourdough french toast dredged in house batter. The gingered pear crêpes with a sprinkling of strawberries and roasted walnuts satisfy sophisticated tastes more efficiently than gnawing on a wing-tipped shoe ($10).
A third-generation Alaskan native, Mike Dodge is proud of his roots through and through. This dedication shines through in his cooking; he insists on using as many fresh and local ingredients as possible in order to support Alaskan businesses. Yet as the executive chef and owner of Hott Stixx, Mike isn’t afraid to look elsewhere for inspiration. He often blends his local raw materials with recipes plucked from all over the world. His appetizer selection—including ginger black-bean tacos, steamed pork buns, samosas, and spicy thai peanut wings—provides insight into the eclectic assortment of dishes. Incorporating international flavors throughout his menu, Mike also uses cooking techniques he learned from his parents, who taught him at a young age to cook baby formula from scratch.
