Fusion Wok Sushi Bar

Katy: We went to check out the new sushi place in the Stone Creek shopping center on Colerain south of I-275 for dinner Sunday night. We were excited that there would be an alternative to Kabuto in the area.
Shawn: Kabuto is a pretty miserable stop for sushi so, like Katy said, we were thrilled to see a new place opening up. Located in the fancy-pants area of Northgate, Fusion Wok is a small restaurant, not much bigger than University Heights’ Maki Express, with similarly spartan decoration. The furnishings are nice and new with lacquered dark wood and the sushi bar is as colorful and lively as any but overall it’s a typical sushi joint.
So that leaves us with the food. A complimentary dish of sugared peanuts surprised us both but I passed on account of them being nuts and all. After a few questions with one of the chefs to confirm what was vegan we had ordered veggie roll ($3.25), sweet potato roll ($4.25), avocado roll ($2.95), cucumber roll ($2.50) and some inari ($3.50).
Katy: The presentation of the sushi was very nice and we were thrilled to see the sweet potato roll is tempura sweet potato like we’ve had at Tokyo. The inari had a very small amount of rice and the tofu wrapper was folded up into itself making these the smallest we’ve had at this price. The veggie roll had a miso sauce on top that was a little sweet & spicy (very slight) and very tasty. Nothing thrilling to say about the avocado or cucumber rolls, they were tasty, not bad and not amazing – average priced. In total, I think all the rolls were reasonably priced for size & quality except the inari being skimpy.
We are looking forward to going again within the next week to try non-sushi foods. Shawn uploaded their menu to Urban Spoon, but as of this moment it hasn’t shown up yet.
