5 Fusion now does lunch and it's good 

5 Fusion and Sushi Bar now open for lunch

Hands down, 5 Fusion and Sushi Bar in downtown Bend has the best sushi around.

My problem: little kids at home mean dinners out are rare and, until recently, that’s put this restaurant mostly off limits for me.

But, now, 5 Fusion is now doing lunch from 11:30 to 2:30 Monday through Friday and the menu is just as ambitious and creative as dinner and happy hour. Full disclosure: 5 Fusion invited the Source in to try the new lunch menu this week on the house. We would have been impressed even if it wasn’t free.

The menu is divided into three sections with small bites ($4), dishes ($8.95) and sushi plates ($11.95). The full sushi menu is also available.

The restaurant is earning the fusion part of its name with the new lunch. The Peking pizza is flatbread slathered with hoisin sauce underneath white cheddar cheese and studded with smoked duck— it was a big hit among our staff. Sliders of beef and kimchi, and a sandwich of panko pork and slaw on a brioche bun round out the globally-inspired dishes.

My favorite dish was the wok beans. They were smothered with a flavor-packed garlic soy sauce, but still crunchy. The spicy pork bulgogi—thin-sliced pork drenched in a sweet and spicy “Korean sauce”— was a close second. I wish I’d had more of the Shitake Soba, but by the time the deep bowl of buckwheat noodles and mushrooms in soy broth got back to my end of the table, it was nearly gone.

The highlight of the meal for me, though, was the sushi. The rolls are just so gorgeous with salmon, or eel or bright pink Ahi draped over the top of perfectly sized bites filled with super fresh ingredients. Roll names like The Geisha and The Steve McQueen make it all extra fun.

Everything is available for take-out and the full bar is open for lunch.
