Hoshun Restaurant Restaurant Review: The owners of Hoshun evidently saw no point in limiting the restaurant's offerings to a single Asian country or region, so they included Vietnamese, Chinese and Japanese all under one roof. Several dining rooms, a sushi bar and an inviting cocktail lounge comprise this multifaceted venue. Just about any ethnic food you desire is available in New Orleans, but this may be the only place to find crispy pumpkin seed plum duck, squid salad, pad thai noodles, soba and well-prepared tempura at once. The owner, Steve Ho, was once a partner in another of the city’s favorite Asian spots, Five Happiness. This effort, however, is far more ambitious. Substantial dishes include Hoshun ribs, steamed, fried and then sautéed in a secret mix of seasonings, served over sweet potato fritters. Best of all, those late, late night cravings for General Tso’s chicken or kung pao shrimp may now be satisfied, as Hoshun serves till 2 a.m. You may be tempted to make a full meal from appetizers --- baked salmon with snow crab anyone? Happy hour daily runs from 3 p.m.-6 p.m.
