Fusion who?

I'm thrilled that salsa dancing has moved into Pacific Moon at Newport on the Levee on Saturday nights. But their latest "Asian-Spanish Fusion Menu" addition for that night may be taking things a bit too far:

• Shrimp Gazpacho
• Szechuan Chicken Taco
• Filet Mignon Burrito
• Paella
• Pineapple Custard Flan

I like good food, but my take is, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Why on earth would I roll my filet mignon in a tortilla and smother it in anything? In a Chinese restaurant, no less?

On the plus side, Tropicoso starts playing salsa tunes at Pacific Moon at 11 p.m. every Saturday night.

Taking it too far.....I don't think so.....Should the Pacific moon also not serve East Indian Chicken? I think their menu is more than just Chinese.

I enjoyed the fact that Alex Chin ventured out with Spanish Asian Fusion cooking. Why not merge both worlds and come up with new dishes.

The Paella was one of the best ones I had in this area, the addition of th Chinese Sausage made it a good combination.
