Semi-late start to the day and we’re driving through Lexington trying to decide whether or not to go on the Bourbon Trail.  Although the Bourbon trail was nixed in favor of a more expeditious trip, I spotted this little gem on the way to find some Bourbon bonbons.  I was a little skeptical at first, mainly because I hadn’t seen many Asian-themed eateries in Kentucky.  The inside is fairly stark, it was a nice comfortable little spot.  Plenty of seating, clean floors and tables.

Their Pho is supposed to be the bee’s knees, but I wasn’t feeling soup.  They didn’t have much (or any?) vegetarian food, so I decided to try out a Shrimp Po’ Boy sandwich.   Lemme tell ya, fried shrimp on a hoagie bun with tomato, lettuce, onions, and mayo?  Delicious.   You get the choice of fries or a side salad.  I opted for the fries, which were standard fare.. but good.  I mean, unless they’re hand cut it’s probably sysco or some other food distributer’s frozen potato goods.  Anyways, the sandwich was pretty decent and didn’t set me back too much.  Unfortunately the whole debacle with my phone kept me from taking pictures, fortunately I have a picture of their avocado shake.  You can get it with tapiaco bubble things like bubble tea.  I thought it was mainly a novelty drink, but it’s kinda hard for me to get over the thick, fatty, semi-salty and sweet, cold avocado drink.  It’s good if you’re really into that sort of thing, but good god.. I like my avocado on tacos, or on tortillas.  Anyways here’s a picture of the avocado shake tea whatever they called it.

Rating: ★★½☆☆ Decor, nothing fancy.  Clean, and plenty of windows for some light to come on in
Rating: ★★★½☆ Everything was fairly reasonably priced.
Rating: ★★★★☆ Food was pretty delicious.
Rating: ★★★½☆ I’m feeling too lazy to do the math, but I liked the place and it was something different than burgers and fries in Kentucky.  So, enjoy your 3 and a 1/2 stars Fusion Cafe.  Keep on bringing a little bit of the rest of the world to Lexington
