Take Tamari. I haven't been back in quite awhile...but I need to go back. They do fusion so, so well. Sushi? Ok. Tostones? Sure. Combine the two? Whoa. But it's amazing!
Aseoma on Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill is another one of those Latino/Asian fusion restaurants that seeks to combine the two cuisines; however, they seem to lean more toward the Korean/Thai end of Asian food, rather than Japanese and Chinese. Food Collage joined me for dinner there, since our friends, Nancy and Tom, talked it up to us.

I picked a 4-top so we'd have room. Doubt that would be a problem.
Food Collage arrived not long after, and we looked over the menu, fighting the urge to keep our voices down because it was so, so quiet. And dark. So if my pictures look terrible...well, there's not much I could do about it.
The menu was quite diverse, and we had a hard time choosing our meals, but one thing we both agreed upon was the Deep-fried Taro, which we decided to split. Food Collage is the one who got me hooked on taro, after all:
Unfortunately, that's about as good as it got.
I also had the Coconut Soup:
Being the Mexican food-fan that I am, a burrito sounded like something I should order, right? I chose the Fire Meat Burrito, which was served with french fries:

I probably will not return to Aseoma, unless I have a hankering for deep-fried taro. I don't post bad reviews often, but I can't deny that this meal wasn't great.
Food Collage and I hung around talking so much after we finished our sub-par meal that we developed a hankering for something else, knowing that it was nearby - fro' yo'. Razzy Fresh, here we come.
It's undeniable to notice how many frozen yogurt places have popped up around town lately, but it's the best concept ever - fill your dish, pay by weight. There are healthy options, along with unhealthier ones. Who doesn't love fro' yo'?

My fro' yo' was taro. SHOCKING. I added popping pearls (which are fruity and fun), yogurt chips, raspberries, and blackberries:
