Week 7 – FUSIAN

Finally! A Chipotle-style restaurant that outdoes even Chipotle!

With locations in Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus, FUSIAN is a wonderful regional faster food restaurant with customizable sushi, which is pretty awesome in and of itself. Additionally, the interior decor is wonderful as well, as it is chic and modern, but also welcoming and comfortable. But mostly chic and modern.

Once upon a time, I typically opted for a white rice roll with shrimp, cucumber, avocado, and cream cheese, topped with spicy mayo, sweet soy, and tempura flakes. The shrimp was breaded and deep fried, and provided a wonderful, tasty texture (Date really likes that element, too), while the cream cheese always added that extra umph—a delectable and flavorful texture that added so much to sushi rolls without being too Americanized.

Recently, however, I’ve found that FUSIAN is a Weight Watchers-friendly meal choice, as I now fill my sushi roll with tuna or salmon, carrots, green onion, avocado, and sweet soy. (Nutrition calculator is available online here.) The best part about it is that, if I have extra points and want to treat myself to tempura flakes or spicy mayo, I can. But I can get a diet-friendly roll and it doesn’t feel like diet food.
