Hoshun Restaurant Restaurant Review: Several dining rooms, a sushi bar and an inviting cocktail lounge comprise this multifaceted venue. Its contemporary décor, executed in subtle earth tones, is restful and warm, and only subtly suggests Asian influences. Although nearly any ethnic food you desire is available in New Orleans, this may be the only place to find crispy pumpkin seed plum duck, squid salad, pad thai noodles, soba, and well-prepared tempura in the same spot. 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.
