We returned to Asian Fusion to delve deeper into their Asian cuisine mix. The Vietnamese owners have a way with not only Vietnamese food but also Chinese, Korean and Thai, no small feat.
The dining room is pleasant with steaming soup bowls carved into the seat backs.
The menu expresses the diversity available and we were beyond pleasantly surprised by the proficiency they have with all of it.
We began with the Japanese favorite edamame, these lightly salted soy beans were tender and warm, getting us off to a great start.
We couldn’t resist the hybrid cheese wonton appetizer of fried wonton wrappers stuffed with a dollop of herb infused cream cheese. Crispy skins erupt with creamy flavor that can be dipped in the sweet and sour sauce served alongside.
The flakey egg rolls come 2 or 4 to an order depending on what is requested.
Tender poultry mixed with greens fill the chicken dumplings that come with a ginger packed sweet chili sauce enhancing the mild crescents.
We love their banh mi and again had to heed the call of soft French baguettes cradling grilled meats with pickled and fresh herbs and vegetables.
The caramelized marinade is singed onto the edges of super tender chicken for a flavor pop that along with tangy radish and carrots, fresh cilantro and hit of jalapeño, meld in perfect unison inside freshly baked bread.
The pork version is also warm, moist, juicy savory goodness against the cool vegetable toppings.
The extensive menu covers 125 Asian dishes in all, plus sides and drinks.
Pan fried noodles are crisped brown under a riot of sautéed vegetables and protein of customers choosing.
While beef udon are extra thick, well cooked al dente soft noodles that can be served with succulent slices of beef and a flavor-filled array of onion and peppers.
Large portions and lunch specials make Asian Fusion an affordable and honestly one of the best Asian/Chinese/Vietnamese restaurants we have on the westside of Los Angeles. We will be visiting his hidden treasure often for a delightful taste of some of the most well loved Asian cuisines available in Los Angeles.
