So, is it me or is Boston and the surrounding area suddenly exploding with Asian “fusion” style joints? (The scare quotes aren’t meant to be in any way negative, cross pollination in food is age old and fine by me though yeah it can sometimes go very wrong if poorly concieved and executed. Like any kind of food).
But it seems like a lot of places that are hitting right now are in this style–Sousaku Bistro (Malden), Tiger Mama (Boston), Little Big Diner (Newton) and the upcoming Ruckus Noodles (Chinatown, from the Shojo folk) and apparent expanded Kaki Lima in East Boston.
Mei Mei Kitchen has been mining this vein successfully for a while, so maybe that’s part of it? Just seems like this is something that is really on fire all of a sudden.
