KFusion - Hamilton, NJ

It's been quite a while since we have visited the original Kenji's Fusion, which has now been branded KFusion, and tonight was the night as both Zelda and I have been craving good Asian Cuisine.
Upon pulling up, I got a bit nervous as there were quite a few people waiting in the lobby, as well as outside, but they must have had larger groups, and we were lucky enough to get their last two top. The place was definitely packed, and it was buzzin'.
As stated before, the decor in this original location is nice, from the stainless steel elements, to the modern lighting, it's just a nice room. If I had to make one complaint about the decor, I would say that they need to do something with the red wall with the bamboo to spice it up a tad, but that is really my only gripe.
Popped and poured an '07 Siduri Santa Rita Hills pinot noir tonight, so feel free to read the review above. Heck of a nice pinot noir for around $25! We started off with the Haru Maki (spring rolls) tonight, as well as the Crispy Crab Meat Balls. Out first were the spring rolls, steaming hot, and fried to a golden brown and served with sweet and sour. As always, these were nice, with a good fry and fresh vegetables.
A few minutes later the crab balls came out, and these too were piping hot. These were good sized round balls of crab meat, breaded and fried to a golden brown, served with a nice duck sauce, that seemed to have some kid of pepper or siracha in it. Whatever it was, they were very tasty.
For entrees tonight, we went for the General Tso's chicken, and a large plate of chicken fried rice. I know, nothing exciting, but these are nice comfort foods, and just what the doctor had ordered. Nice sized portion on the General Tso, with a god sauce, large breaded chunks of chicken, and some good peppers and veg.
As usual, the fried rice was good, but I will say that they use a bit too much onion, and I absolutely love onions. The chunks are just a bit too large for me, but thankfully they are easy enough to eat around. They also use some peas and carrots in the fried rice, and it always has some nice flavor.
All in all, what can I say other than another nice meal at KFusion? The ambiance is nice, the service was good, and for just over $30, this was a nice meal that left me plenty satisfied, so much that we even skipped dessert, although I probably could have made some room. The place was packed, and we even ran into our friends Stephen and Melissa there. If you guys are reading, great to see you as always! Cheers everyone! -F. Scott
