Open for Business: Fusion City, 310 Ninth Street

Fusion City, a small new restaurant specializing in Indian and Chinese food, opened last week in the space on Ninth Street just west of Fifth Avenue most recently occupied by Filfila Falafel, which was open for about a year and a half before closing about a month ago. Before Filfila, Pita Hut was a longtime tenant before morphing into Pizza Pita Grill and closing in 2011. Needless to say, this space has a rather high turnover rate.

The menu is small but diverse, featuring Indian dishes like chicken makhani and lamb coconut curry along with a few Chinese options like lo mein, fried rice, and beef with fresh chili pepper. They also offer steamed chicken and a couple other healthier options. The menu also features a few breakfast items, like crepes, omelettes, and samosas (the fillings aren't specified).

I didn't have a chance to try the food, but it was quite apparent that the man behind the counter was the owner and most likely also the chef, a sign that this place is a labor of love. Hopefully he has better luck in this space than his predecessors.

Fusion City, 310 9th Street Brooklyn NY 11215. 347-223-4367. Free delivery.

Didn't have a chance to try the food? Why not wait a day, then. Try the food and make this entry all the more valuable to your readers.

@Kay-Z Agreed I dont get it so much in the neighborhood going on thats not covered. Its great to learn that somethings open but far more informative to learn whether its worth trying. It would be equally interesting to learn what the owner? behind the counter has to say about their place.

Sounds to me like Kay-Z and Jbob should start their own neighborhood blog and show Dan how it is done.

@ Real Parksloper

Don't know about that one..... There might be to much Rub-n-Tug coverage on Jbob's behalf.

Openings and closings..

Thanks for this post. I don't have high hopes for this place, but who knows? A two mile delivery radius is pretty impressive (I wish Just Salad would take note).

@just shlopin looks like youre rubbin and tuggin Dan right now

April 11, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJbob

mmmm chicken white.
sounds so appetizing.

looks more like he was trying to make indian food and realized he had the same ingredients for some Chinese dishes.
not really fusion if you are not fusing the dishes together...just a place serving two types of food.

@JSlob

I think you'd know more about that than I would.

Leave Dan outta this....

April 11, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJust Shlopin

@Just Sloppy

Its your warped mind that invented the "rub n tug"-own it.

@jbobprime-shoulda stayed in school, India and China share a border and Indian/Chinese cuisine is common in the east-particularly in Nepalese cuisine but its all over places like SIngapore and Malaysia and making a splash in Queens especially.

April 11, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJbob

Indian Chinese fusion is a thing. It's similar to the food they eat in Tibet.

Try it before you denounce it. That's what children do.

@JBobbin'-n-Slobbin'

Everyone knows what "Rub-N-Tug" is... You just perfected it.... (JBOB Rub-n-Tug GOLD CARD)

Bedsheets on the window, that was your idea wasn't it??!!

Chinese Indian? Sounds disastrous. Should fit right in over there, with that demographic.

April 11, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterParkSlopePope

I was not denouncing anything.
just that his menu has separate indian and chinese dishes.
nothing is really FUSED together

April 11, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterjbobPRIME

Thank you. Pass.

Hubby bought food there yesterday. Some sort of combo with two different types of chicken and some lamb. He said it was the worst food he had had in a while and that the chicken was horrible. he will never go back.

I didn't have any myself, but, he's pretty tolerant when it comes to food, so, if he hated it that much, I'm not going near the place.
