Since I only went into to La Fusta to pick up my carry-out order I can only go into detail about the menu item I ordered two days in a row. (It was just that good!) If you’re in search for a light yet filling dish and wanting to avoid pastas and steak for whatever reason try La Fusta’s avocado & shrimp salad. One serving is good for either one or two people, but if you like it anywhere close to as much as I did, you’ll want it for yourself or you’ll go back for greedy seconds. Sliced egg, tomato, red onion, beans, lettuce, avocado and shrimp are all found in the salad and with a dash of salt, pepper and their lemon dressing, a simple leafy dish becomes a mouth-watering masterpiece.
I had a full sample of the salad at La Fusta’s North Bergen, NJ location while camping out at the Comfort Suites for work. It’s in an industrial, slightly sketchy part of town, which makes it easy to miss if you’re trying to make it to an area more pleasing on the eyes. Check them out if you’re in North Bergen or if you’re in New York at their Elmhurst location. See the website for more details.
La Fusta is located at 1110 Tonnelle Avenue, North Bergen, NJ 07047. Ph. 201.770.1950.
