10 places to eat... Asian fusion

This week, we're scoping out Asian fusion foodie finds across Glasgow and Edinburgh - from sushi to ramen, nothing is sacred!

Opium

191 Hope Street, Glasgow

Gordon M opted for two dim sum for main "sticky rice with chicken and satay won ton, both were packed with flavour. The shared satay which was also delicious, a nice thick peanut sauce with a good chilli chick and succulent chicken cooked to perfection."

Red-Box Noodle Bar

51/53 West Nicolson Street, Edinburgh

This "super fast-service noodle bar" is a favourite with Lianne W, who's already planning a return visit. "All the ingredients are cooked fresh in big pans behind the counter" and they have a range of meal deals too. "Perfect for fast, fresh and cheap but very yummy food."

Bar Soba

116 Byres Road, Glasgow

Sharon M had a miso-based ramen soup. "Served with pork, which wasn't pulled as I thought it'd be, but it was really tender and there was a good helping of vegetables in the mix: broccoli, mange tout, red onion and pak choi, and then scattered with fresh red chilli and coriander!"

Nanyang Malaysian Restaurant

Unit 1 3-5 Lister Square, Edinburgh

Claire L found that the "plentiful portions" served up by this place were "lovely - well spiced, with huge chunks of chicken in my curry, and vegetables." Being a gluten-free eater, she was also pleased to note that "staff were friendly and attentive and took care to check I was getting the right food."

Wudon

535 Great Western Road, Glasgow

Duncan W had "a couple of sides of sushi - king prawn in green tea noodles and then tempura battered (soba ebi tempura) and king prawn with avocado a nigri wrap. Both were pleasant portion sizes and didn't disappoint in the flavour department!"

Levens

30-32 Leven Street, Edinburgh

Jurgen D loved this "roast Gressingham duck" at this Bruntsfield restaurant; "cooked perfectly and very tender, the sauces packed a suitable punch but even more importantly has lovely layered flavours".

Nippon Kitchen

91 West George Street, Glasgow

Caley M "ordered the vegetarian bento box which consisted of miso soup, vegetable gyoza, edamame, veggie tempura, Jasmine rice and some pieces of sushi. I was starving and near inhaled my miso soup which arrived within minutes of ordering. It was light and full of seaweed, spring onions and tofu cubes."

Silver Bowl

311 Leith Walk, Edinburgh

"This place rocks my world, their food is off the hook," raves Tom G. "They are based in Leith but deliver as far afield as Newington," he adds delightedly. He doesn't have any specific tips as he loves it all, "but even if you are just a beginner their classic dishes are great. It all tastes really fresh".

Wagamama

97 West George Street, Glasgow

Grahame G "tried the new Mahi Mahi fish curry, which came with sweet potato chunks and rice. OK, the actual fish portion wasn't huge, but overall the dish was very tasty and adequately filling!"

Kampong Ah Lee Malaysia Delight

28 Clerk Street, Edinburgh

"Nothing brings as much delight as Kampong Ah Lee" coos Alexander C, blown away by his "very flavourful beef rendang". He even sneaked a taste of his wife's "laksa noodle soup with a nice kick to it. Definitely winners for these Malaysian specialties!"
