A marriage between two cuisines is preferable to a marriage between two clones of Sylvester Stallone, a process that eventually results in a baby reared on raw egg and meat punching bags. Savor a simpler fusion with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of food and drink at Fusion World Cuisine, located in Monument.
Executive chef Waiming Tung brings 20 years of cooking experience to Fusion World Cuisine and its menu of fare influenced by the flavors of Asia and Europe and tuned to the key of "fuse." Use your lunch break to experiment with the chicken vegetable stir-fry ($5.95) or bring an order of pepper shrimp ($8.95) home to your taste laboratory. All lunch specials come with rice and a choice of egg drop, hot and sour, or miso soup. Nocturnal eaters can nosh on traditional Chinese staples such as orange beef ($12.25) and General Tsao chicken ($9.25). Dinnermates sporting two sets of taste buds can find common ground through fusion specialties such as the lobster and scallop pasta ($18.25) tossed with a light herb-pesto sauce and garnished with fish roe. Fusion World Cuisine also offers two three-course meal deals: the Asian meal ($15.95) lets diners choose from a list of traditional Chinese dishes, and the fusion dinner ($25.95) gives diners free reign over the menu, offering the sort of satisfying freedom known only to math tutors locked in rooms packed with calculators and truth tables.
Fusion World Cuisine's wine list features grapebloods from all over the world, in addition to plum wine and sake. Hops-enthusiasts may prefer a microbrew or imported beer instead, and thirsty mouths acting as international fusion agents can sip on a Fusion Sakitini and ponder their latest assignment to neutralize a shrimp uprising in the udon noodle province.
