Fuji Asian (Boca Raton)
***** Fuji Asian, 22191 Powerline Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33433 (561) 392-8778.
Fuji Asian is located in Boca Raton. It is a Japanese Restaurant, but its menu does have a handful of Chinese dishes.
Last Sunday Night (8/3/08) was my first “time” in this joint and I have to tell you that I was very impressed by the decor/food/service….I did find the menu a bit pricey for a neighborhood-strip center restaurant. Rather than my describing the joint’s decor as a combination of “Raider’s Of The Lost Ark and Aladdin” do me a favor and take a look at Fuji’s website at www.fujiboca.com which has a handful of pictures of the restaurant’s interior…the website also has menu/prices/other details.
It goes without saying, that this Japanese joint has the full gamut of Japanese stuff like sushi, sashimi, miso soup, teriyaki chicken, sake.
Just so you know, I didn’t eat any Japanese food, but “sampled” the Chinese menu…won ton soup, shrimp fried rice, steamed pot-stickers, roast pork, General Tso’s chicken…the Chinese stuff was as good if not better than my favorite neighborhood Chinese eat-in/take-out.
As for the Japanese part of the menu, the three folks that I was with absolutely raved about the shitake mushroom soup, miso soup, yellowtail snapper, shrimp & vegetable tempura and California roll-tuna roll-salamon roll.
Now…you know and I know, that Jeff Eats has impeccable taste…As for the three folks I was with, these were the same people who just a few months ago told me “There is no chance whatsoever that Big Brown will lose the Belmont.” Based on the Chinese food alone, I highly recommend Fuji and would bet that the Japanese stuff is also terrific.
Fuji is open Monday-Friday for lunch and dinner…and Saturday-Sunday dinner only.
