WINNIPEG, MB - Fusian Experience is easily accessible via Route 90. I went to the restaurant to pick up our dinner one evening when my kitchen was under renovation. The owner, Lisa Le-Taing, took care of me herself while her partner and husband, owner/chef Chris Taing, was clearly visible in the open kitchen. The restaurant itself has a cozy atmosphere.
The Sushi Tacos were stellar with fresh tastes of satiny albacore tuna and mango salsa. The Hawaiian Shrimp Nachos, however, knocked dinner right out of the park! Spicy panko shrimp were perfectly teamed with mango and pineapple. The avocado and Gouda added a silky texture; the jalapenos provided some heat and the wonton crisps, even more, crunch. We all went crazy for these!
The Forbidden Risotto was the pièce de résistance. Organic king salmon had been fashioned into a floral bloom and was nestled atop a bed of black rice risotto. Black rice is so packed with nutrition; everyone should try to eat it more often. The quail egg added fabulous pizzazz both visually and in taste.
