One of the restaurants recently opened along Field Street, Fuji Dim Sims Hut offers both Dim Sum and Chinese style dishes. Their Dim Sum dishes are notable in that they are available any time of the day rather than only during lunchtime.
The pork belly in the Hot Noodles with Peanut Butter & Pork Belly was tender and partnered wonderfully with pickled mustard greens. The peanut butter referred in the name of the dish is actually sesame paste, which imparted its distinctive nutty taste to the dish. To best enjoy the dish, mix all the ingredients thoroughly before eating to infuse the taste of the sauce into everything.

While the Golden Deep Fried Squid Tenacles were chunky in appearance, they were actually very tender. The light and crisp coating of the squid did a good job of setting off the seafood nicely. Served with the squid was chilli sauce to add a bit of a spicy kick.

Coming in a serve of three, the size of Minced Pork in Bean Curd Skin Rolls was very generous. The bean curd skin was not too chewy and the pork mince filling was very juicy. The sauce that was spooned over the Bean Curd Rolls gave them a delectable savoury taste and ensured the dish was not too dry.

A dish at nearly all Dim Sum restaurants in Adelaide, the King Prawn Rice Rolls, still retained a bit of bite and the king prawns did not taste fishy. As expected, the rice rolls were dressed with a soy sauce based sauce that subtly enhanced their flavour. The best way to enjoy them is to roll the rice rolls in the sauce before eating it.

One of the dishes considered to be used as a benchmark for a good Dim Sum restaurant, the skin of the King Prawn Dumplings had a light texture and was not too chewy. We also liked that the prawn filling had the slightly sweet taste we expected from the dumplings. For those that desire to add more flavour, chilli sauce and chilli oil are available for diners to use.

Fuji's close location to Chinatown makes it a great place for those desiring Dim Sum outside of the hours it is usually offered.
