Looking to try someplace new for dinner? Village Asian Fusion and Sushi Bar recently set up shop right in town on Middle Neck Road. As its name implies, Village offers a huge selection of Asian Fusion with a mixture of Chinese, Thai and Japanese cuisines.
Diners can choose from an extensive selection of sushi and sashimi or teriyaki, tempura, noodle, rice and specialty dishes.
Owned by Asian bodybuilding champion Lily Cao, Village’s walls are covered in whimsical paintings by renowned Asian brush painter Li Jin. Jin’s artistic theme celebrates life with comfortable and relaxed styles and Cao shares the same original, genuine, fresh, delicious and healthy attitude as Jin.
Appetizers include favorites like spring rolls, edamame, scallion pancakes, chicken or beef satay and various dumplings. Typical Asian soups, such as hot and sour, egg drop, miso and wonton, are available along with plenty of salad options like seaweed, crispy calamari and soft shell crab tempura.
Of course, there’s a selection of noodle and rice dishes, including lo mein, udon, Singapore rice noodles, pad Thai and Thai fried rice with tofu, chicken, beef or shrimp. Entrée sauces range from Thai coconut curry to mild mango, black bean, wok-glazed ginger, Szechuan peppercorn and soy ginger, all served over a variety of meat, chicken, fish or tofu.
Chef specialties in the Wok n’ Grill section include twists on Chinese and Thai favorites like Wok Grilled Garlic Shrimp, Sesame Chicken, General Tso’s Chicken, Sliced Flank Steak Basil, Grilled Lemongrass Shrimp and Grilled Salmon, Chicken or Chilean Seabass.
The sushi bar menu offers even more options with a selection of appetizers such as Tuna Tartar, Yellowtail Jalapeño, Beef Tataki and Sushi Pizza. Salads such as Tuna Avocado, Lobster Mango Tartar and Shrimp Mango offer light choices. Sushi and sashimi selections include tuna, salmon and yellowtail along with striped bass, smoked salmon and red snapper. An extensive selection of rolls are also available.
