Those three words everyone loves to hear, conjuring up emotions of bliss, contentment – a sense of great things to come.
“I am paying”, my cousin said to me. He is working out of California, visiting family in South Africa and wanted to treat us to a nice meal. With the dollar being quite strong recently, I had no choice but to take him to one of the top restaurants in PE, and not feel the least bit guilty.
Having traveled extensively, he recommended that we start with a nigori saki, nigori being the unfiltered cloudy version, which Fushin serves over a mashed berry base. The drink is very refreshing, but at the same time, quite strong and to some, an acquired taste.
Looking through the menu we placed an order for black peppered calamari, crispy ribs, tom yum soup and three styles of sushi, new york – served with tempura prawns and spicy mayo, mexican – tuna and chilli and tiger eye – prawn tempura wrapped with salmon and avocado.
Everything was exceptional, each dish a wonderful balance of flavour and texture. Another element of the meal that really I enjoyed, is being able to share what we ordered and taste each of the dishes individually. This style of eating is definitely a favourite of mine, encouraging conversation and making the dinner an adventure, more than just something to eat.
Fushin remains one of the top restaurants in PE and as the name suggests, it is a fusion of eastern and western cuisine.
