An Atlantan In the Bay: Fusian

The House: North Beach, San Francisco, CA USA

One of my first friends that I made after moving to San Francisco took me here to show me one of the different neighborhoods of the Bay proper. Having been here for about 8+ years, he was a really good reference to have not just for the city but also for eats. I normally would not have sought out an Asian-Fusion restaurant, but I am really glad that he took me here. Things we shared included:

  • seared ahi with green beans
  • seared scallops appetizer

Seared Scallops
– cooked perfectly: perfect sear, not burnt, not overly tough from being overcooked, super soft
– whatever that glace and sauce was, it was super tasty. I want to say it was some kind of citrus mayo but I could be off. My memory fails me as this was over two months ago

The House - seared scallops

Seared Ahi with green beans
– perfect quantity, even to share
– well cooked, not under and not over
– well seasoned: not too salty, not too bland
– green beans were not overly oily
– nice balance between carbs, protein, and vegetable
– some kind of sauce or glaze would be nice but not entirely necessary

The House - seared ahi

I’d definitely come back here. The service was great, never had to wait or ask for any refills for water. Admittedly, the wait is long but that’s normal for a good place. For those of you who refuse to wait, that’s totally fine but for me a lot of things are worth the wait, food included. I’d totally recommend this place as a good date place except for the fact that it is loud and the space is a bit cramped. Good to catch up with a friend though for sure!  In summary:

  • seared ahi with green beans: ***.75 (3.75 stars)
  • seared scallops appetizer: ***.85 (3.85 stars)
