O Asian Fusion resides in an old Pizza Hut building. The exterior and some of the interior reflects that. The dining area is small but you do not feel cramped. There is a small but efficient sushi station on one end of the building, and on the other is the bar, behind that is where the magic happens.
I was hungry and craving for sushi, my dad wasn’t feeling it, but after I ordered and showed him what was in it, he decided to give it a try as well. So we ordered two orders of their garden sushi rolls. They had avocado, cucumber and asparagus in it. They came out with the usual pickled ginger and wasabi. I could have liked to see a bit more wasabi, as none went to waste. I don’t think my dad has had sushi before, so I had to warn him about the wasabi. He liked the wasabi and appreciated the different heat it produced. The seaweed was not too fishy tasting, the rice was sticky, veggies were nice and tasty.
I decided to order one of my old standbys. I ordered yellow curry with tofu thai hot. The curry had potatoes, carrots, and onions in it. The vegetables were all cooked perfectly. None of them were too firm or soft. The sauce was nice and creamy and the spiciness was just under perfect for me. When you ask for thai hot here, you are going to get something close to it. The tofu was also perfect. It was nice and firm and fried just right. It was not mushy inside. My dad really liked it as well. The complaint I would have is the rice was served on a small plate and I ended up having to put half of the rice in the bowl that the sauce came in so I wouldn’t spill any of the food on the table. I wish that the rice would have been served on a larger plate so I could have put all the food on the plate.
My dad got sweet and sour pork. He asked for it to be spicy as well, and got a level five. He liked how everything was cooked. It wasn’t as spicy as he thought it would be, however I also mentioned that sweet and sour isn’t usually a dish you add heat to, and the sweetness probably mellowed it out. There was plenty of pork in his dish, there was also bell peppers, pineapple, cucumbers, onions and tomatoes. The description of the sauce was a thai sweet and sour sauce. I am not sure what the difference of the sauce is between chinese and thai. Next time I come here I will try this to see what the difference is. He did enjoy his dish. He ate it all and liked the flavors of it and the pork was good as well.
We both ate everything and left with no doggie bags. The portions were just enough for dinner, and the prices was reasonable. Even the prices of the beer was reasonable. They did have a special that night of Tsing Tao for only $2.50 and that is what we drank. None of their 12 ounce beers were over $5 though, including imports. The 22 ounce ones were $7.
