Wang’s North Park has been around since 2011 and serves up Asian fusion fare. The only time I sampled their food was during a Taste of North Park event a few years back. That was only one item but on this night we had a wide range of dishes to fill our tummies.Wangs Collage

Immediately as you enter the doors you kind of forget where you are. They have a huge space and converted it into a restaurant from an old JC Penny department store. There is a bar, couches, tables, and booth seating throughout.…
