Kwan’s Cuisine

Chef Kwan came from Hong Kong and opened his first Salem restaurant, Kwan’s Kitchen, in 1976, immediately setting the standard of cooking without using MSG. In 1982, Kwan’s Cuisine opened. Kwan’s Cuisine has been remodeled as one of the largest banquet areas in Salem. After 37 years, Kwan’s Cuisine includes specialties like Strawberry Chicken and Kwan’s Special Chow Mein, and favorites such as Chicken Pot Stickers and Hot and Sour Soup. Kwan’s also caters to health requests such as gluten-free, special oils and whole-grain rices, vegetarian and vegan. Take-out and banquets are offered. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Thursday; 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday; 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Saturday; and 11:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday. Muchas Gracias stays away from frozen ingredients, using everything fresh Muchas Gracias may draw in a steady stream of customers with tasty “cheap eats,” but the experience of tasting their Mexican cuisine is about way more than saving money. The restaurant opened in 2004 and has spent 10 years preparing their specialty tacos and burritos from scratch onsite. Their food may be ‘fast’, but they know taste is important, so everything is fresh and never frozen. Muchas Gracias offers catering for big and small events, including some of Salem’s larger corporate businesses for meetings or company events.
