The story of Mosa Asian Bistro began with the journey of two brothers, Eddie and Alfred Pao, who immigrated from Taiwan to the United States in 1977. In 1979, with the help of their family’s recipes, they opened the first Formosa Restaurant on Summer Avenue with the idea that they could bring Memphis its first taste of true Chinese cuisine. The response from Memphians surpassed Eddie and Alfred’s wildest expectations. Their success eventually allowed them to open multiple locations throughout the city, establishing Formosa as a local favorite and also winning the prestigious Best Chinese award from Memphis Magazine an unprecedented 19 years in a row.
Nearly two decades after their humble beginning, Mosa Asian Bistro is the continuation of the brothers’ legacy. Mosa aims to bring the community a fusion of Korean, Japanese and Thai cuisine while staying true to its Chinese roots. Like Formosa before it, Mosa emphasizes cooking meals “made to order” so that freshness and taste are clearly evident. Eddie, along with his family Charleen, Michelle, Alex and Laura aim to continue the tradition of using the freshest ingredients while providing guests a contemporary, yet local and friendly atmosphere.
