Jersey City - Wild Fusion

Kelly | Jun 1, 2006 01:24 PM

Someone below was looking for Jersey City recommendations for vegetarian. I tried Wild Fusion on Grove Street today. I am trying to give up chicken (not because of this bird flu hysteria, just my own personal reasons) and thought their menu offered a good enough selection to experiment with an alternative rather than my usual, beef.

I ate outside, the only diner out there - figured I would get lousey service but the I was wrong. The staff was very attentive. I explained that I am trying to learn more about tofu and soy options. I also explained that I prefer small pieces to large ones (I tried a soy gluten thing in Westbury recently as part of my experimentation and the pieces were so big with a disgusting texture, I threw most of it out).

The waitress brought the cook over and made sure he created my Tangerine Crispy Tofu with small pieces.

It wasn't quite as spicy as I would have liked but I was otherwise pleased. The portion would easily have fed two, it was presented nicely and all of the pieces were very consistent and well coated in the tangerine sauce.

I didn't go inside but in general what I saw seemed very clean. Also, their lunch specials seem reasonable. They are priced similar to regular take out restaurants but this place is definately more sophisticated than takeout in a strip mall.
