Asian Fusion Food

Ame in SFAsian inspired cuisine is now pretty much mainstream in the Bay Area.  While it takes some hunting to locate the authentic tastes and flavors are the Far East, every other restaurant now has dishes crafted with Asian ingredients while others have melded staples from Japan, Korea, and Thailand with a Californian ethos.

Farallon in Union Square

Farallon restaurant in San FranciscoI have reviewed Farallon before.  Located in the tourist hotspot of the Union Square in San Francisco, this restaurant seems to be one that would be comfortably at home in Las Vegas or Atlantic City with its elaborate and whimsical ocean motifs and cavernous interiors.  The food is pretty good too, even if not mind-blowing, and that is what I went back for during a recent weekend.

Incognito in Pune

Sole fish with salsa at Incognito PuneIncognito, like its name suggests, is difficult to locate in bustling Phoenix City Market, the new shopping destination in Pune. The unusual name is coupled with a warm atmosphere surrounded by eclectic bric bracs from another time that also includes a selection of hardcover books in one corner.  This restaurant has become my family's most visited eating place in the last few months!
