Asia Kan Restaurant Review

: With its dimly lit, stylishly modern setting of black and dark blue hues and understated Asian decorative accents, complete with a statue of Buddha along the wall, Asia Kan looks like your typical Asian fusion restaurant. The menu, too, offering a collection of classic and special sushi rolls and eclectic Asian appetizers as well as grill specialties, also reads like your conventional Asian fusion menu. Many dishes fall short, though. Take the iso maki special roll, a blend of tuna, salmon, yellowtail, avocado, cucumber and tobiko with white seaweed: the taste should have been subtle but flavorful, and was instead bland. The king crab roll was flaky and light, but the sushi rice was on the dry side. The char-grilled Chilean sea bass with sautéed mixed vegetables and rice, however, hit the spot; the miso sauce marinade worked to enhance both the delicate taste of the fish and the zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms and carrots. Ultimately, in a market where fusion fare is standard, simply being one of the crowd may not be enough.
