Green Tea House, Asian fusion restaurant, open in Alliance Town Center

FORT WORTH — North Fort Worth gets some good-looking sushi at Green Tea House, an Asian restaurant that opened in late February at Alliance Town Center off 35W and Heritage Trace Parkway.

Sushi not always being an easy sell out in the 'burbs, Green Tea House also offers Chinese food and bubble tea, and serves wine, beer, and sake.

"[Chef William Liang] has more than 15 years of experience cooking in Beijing," said a manager who answered the phone. "When he was in China, he cooked Asian fusion food, so he knows how to do Chinese, Japanese, and Thai."

The house specialty is a dish called Pecan Chicken, but there's an emphasis on healthy cooking, with vegetarian options such as Orange Peel Tofu, no MSG, low sodium, and a minimum of oil used in cooking.

The kitchen has an open design, and there's a sushi bar as well as a boba tea station. The restaurant is one of many opening at Alliance Town Center, a shopping complex built by Perot's Hillwood development company, with an exterior that vaguely mimics the West Village. It boasts about two dozen quick-casual and/or fast-food places such as Jason's Deli and Zoe's Kitchen, and a Baker Bros. American Deli opened on Monday, with a Mi Cocina coming soon. Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital will open there in the fall.
