I tend to avoid mixed Western/Asian places. Not sure if it's still the case but many Chinese restaurants used to have a Western section. I once had fish'n'chips at a Chinese restaurant it was pretty good actually! I mean they do sweet'n'sour fish and the batter is nice so why not?
The El Salvadorean place I go to is at Subiaco Station St. Markets.

I live in the western suburbs and the places with mixed cuisine often have Italian names eg. Tiamo, Giardini's and still have many Italian dishes but with some Asian dishes which seem to be influenced by the fact that most of their cooks are from Asia. Even the supposedly Japanese place down the road from me has a menu that is at least half Thai haha. Usually the food at these places isn't crash hot but the Thai/Japanese place (Wok and Roll) is pretty good.

Weird. I haven't seen any Italian-fusion places or Italian restaurants that serve Asian food, well except one in South Perth on Albany Highway. There is one sort of fusion place called Pepper Lunch, on Barrack St, which came from Japan I believe, which is interesting. Their meals are pretty healthy.

Places that just serve different Asian cuisines are fairly common though. There's one called Tao which seems really popular, despite the high prices.

I guess generic, multi-cuisine restaurants are pretty common here as we don't really have any food courts/shopping centres in close proximity, if I want relatively authentic cuisine I go to either Malaysian Hawker at Floreat Food Court or better still Spencer Rd Village in Thornlie.

In the St. Louis area, it seems to be Thai food, Mexican (or Tex/Mex), and Italian. Loves me some Thai food!

- Japanese (usually they are Chinese poeple that make suchis!)

If you're ever in Garden City check out Shiki Inn. For being in a shopping centre it actually serves some of the best Malaysian I've had here! I had their Hainanese Chicken Rice the other day. Their chicken curry, laksa.etc is actually among the best I've had! Reasonably priced too.

There's a complex in Willetton with a few really good places and yes, of course the well known Spencer Village. I was just there the other day, although I might go there a couple of times a year. The food isn't fantastic actually, but it has an authentic food court feel.

The truth is we don't.. if I was to goto a Chinese and they said I was getting Japanese food I would never know if I wasn't because i've never seen Japanese food before.
