Piazza Seafood Presents: Hoshun Restaurant, New Orleans, La.
In New Orleans, Asian cuisine isn’t an uncommon sight for what many culinary aficionados consider a cultural melding pot from around the world. Situated on historic St. Charles Ave., Hoshun Restaurant’s modern take on Asian cuisine and its late hours, has created a loyal following locally and with returning tourists.
Traveling by Taste
From sushi to Pad Thai to fried rice, the variety of regional dishes is nothing short of amazing. Traditionally seen in many sushi dishes, tuna is the star in many plates, such as this one. A must try is The Super Dome. This roll features a mountain of fresh tuna and snow crab filled with sushi rice, spicy crawfish, and avocado, wrapped in seaweed paper topped with crunchy tempura flakes for some texture. The tuna is so fresh it melts in your mouth and it perfectly pairs with the spicy kick from the crawfish tails. Hoshun trusts Piazza Seafood to supply them with the best ingredients to use in this dish and others including crawfish fried rice (oh yes…we will get to that).
“The tuna is really, really fresh,” says Mick Tran, General Manager at Hoshun. “It’s [all] really, really fresh.”
“We have tried switching [to other companies] and it just doesn’t compare.”
Crawfish fried rice. Yes you heard that right. The protein of the South is the star of this traditional Chinese plate of rice, onions, eggs, bean sprouts, carrots and scallions. What sets this fried rice apart from the usual is the flavor the crawfish tails bring to this dish.
