East meets Texas
Fusion (****) blends Chinese, Japanese and Southeast Asian flavors with Texas tastes. Excellent sushi and clever entrees, served family-style for sharing, make this a standout among the growing number of local Asian-influenced restaurants.

Some like it hot: Many dishes have a spicy splash, such as the Texas roll with jalapeños and fried oysters with wasabi crème fraîche.

In Honor of the National Champions - The Texas Roll

Very rarely do I order any of the specialty rolls in sushi bars. For some reason, it just seems blasphemous to me. However, I would like to think that lifting my personal ban on certain things in maki sushi and ordering the Texas Roll at LA’s Hana Sushi contributed to Texas’ lovely 41-38 win over USC in the Rose Bowl/Championship Bowl last night.

The Texas Roll is basically a Philadelphia Roll with salmon and cream cheese, but with the addition of fresh jalapenos to make it “Texan.” (I am already kicking myself for calling out the “Philadelphia Roll” because I had previously refused to acknowledge that it has become a regular, standard item on sushi menus.) The Texas Roll didn’t taste horrible, but I am thinking that it only tasted okay as I watched Vince Young sashay across the field to make a TD.

At the Tsunami Sushi bar in Tulsa, Okla., the Texas roll—which in addition to crab and tuna also sports chipotle cream cheese, jalapeno peppers and ancho aioli—is one of several offerings with Hispanic flavors.
