FUZIO - San Francisco

Fuzio is a small, very friendly café in the Castro neighborhood. The menu features Thai and Italian cuisine.

My very good friend, Rich, treated me to lunch. He ordered for both of us; I could not have been more pleased. For a starter, we shared the Firecracker Lettuce Wraps. The firecracker marinated chicken is cooked with tidbits of portobello mushrooms and water chestnuts. The wraps are served with a carrot & ginger salad and leaves of iceberg lettuce for wrapping. The sweet chili vinaigrette dipping sauce is fantastic. This very flavorful plate is an excellent starter to your meal.

For my luncheon entrée, I had the Sukiyaki Noodle Bowl with bite-sized strips of very tender steak. It was an incredible blend of sake wine and soy sauce tossed with onions, slivers of fresh ginger, generous pieces of shiitake mushrooms and Shanghai noodles. This Asian bowl was absolutely delicious. I am still licking my lips.

The very diverse lunch guests and full bar made for a very enjoyable and entertaining afternoon. If you happen to be driving, be certain to bring a pocket full of quarters. The parking meters are very hungry.

Fuzio prides itself on ensuring every plate that comes from their kitchen is rich in authentic flavors and ingredients. The tag line on their business card “Savor the world one forkful at a time.” is so very true! I wish there was a Fuzio nearer to my home.

Mmm, Mmm, Mmm
