A Look At Some Dishes From Fusion

I gave a sneak peek of Fusion located at 4815 Georgia Ave last week but I finally had a chance to sample some of the dishes. Ed. Note: I was able to do a taster menu (which I paid for) so some of the portions that you see photographed may be a bit smaller than the actual portions. I recognize that I am not a proper restaurant reviewer. I can’t tell you that the hint of chutney blended brilliantly complimenting the spicy potato patty but I can tell you it was freaking delicious. I honestly do look forward to Tom Siestma and Tim Carman’s reviews. I think they are going to be blown away. Additionally, it is super nice to a have a proper sit down restaurant on Georgia Avenue that is of the highest caliber.  I have no doubt the quality will match or exceed those of other Indian restaurants around town. As many of you have noted, the owner Barry and his family are also as nice as can be, which only adds to the pleasant dining experience.

Pictured above is the Ragda Patties. Ed. Note: I will post a full menu when it becomes available to me in an electronic format.

Below you will find the Mango Shrimp which were also freaking delicious.

Below you can see the Lamb kurma on the left and the Palak paneer on the right. Barry explained to me that the Palak paneer is so green because he uses fresh spinach that is pureed in a blender. In addition to the Palak paneer there are also five other vegetarian options. Let me just add that soaking the bread in the sauces of these dishes is a delight in and of itself.

Finally I tried the Chicken Makhani which was also quite tasty but I’d say the Lamb kurma and the mango shrimp were my favorites.

Hopefully they’ll have their liquor license soon which will seal the deal as this being one of my new favorite restaurants. I really think the quality is so good that this is going to become a destination restaurant for those that don’t even live nearby. So I’d head over soon while it’s still possible to get a table!  Full menu after the jump.
