The food we eat is forever changing, and as ideas and culinary expertise move and mix across the globe, new flavours are constantly being created as separate styles are introduced to one another. At first appearance many of these dishes shouldn’t work, but once tasted, the results are often spectacular.
If you are a fan of fusion food, or if you want to know what all the fuss is about, here are some of the finest fusion dining spots in the world.
Thai food is known for its fresh ingredients and strong flavours, and while this is true at Sra Bua - with restaurants in Berlin, Bangkok and Jochberg - a meal here is far more contemporary than classic Thai dishes.
Crafted by famous restauranteurs Tim Raue, Kiin Kiin and Frank Heppner, guests can enjoy extraordinary dishes, that use interesting ingredients, all presented with a delicate, ornate artistry rarely experienced elsewhere.
A Korean-fusion restaurant in New York City – famous for its great selection of Korean dishes – Jungsik is a two Michelin-starred restaurant that has won over the critics with its sublime French take on eastern cuisine.
Subtler than traditional Korean cookery, chef and owner Junsik Kim has produced dishes that are exciting, beautiful and delicious – a great idea is to try the five-course tasting menu that contains all sorts of fantastic flavours.
Located in Budapest at Kempinski Hotel Corvinus is Nobu, a wonderful restaurant where you can experience the pairing of Japanese and South American culinary schools.
At first glance it might appear an odd combination, but dishes such as Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno and Alaskan Black Cod with Miso will have you reconsidering the second you try it. Created by chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, Nobu is certainly one of Budapest’s culinary highlights.
At Zengo, chef Richard Sandoval has created something very special. Fusing a pan-Asian selection of ingredients and culinary themes – from curries, to sashimi, all the way to fiery wok dishes – each served alongside mocktails flavoured with typical Asian ingredients.
The food is certainly excellent, but when served in the restaurant, with its 61st floor position overlooking Doha and amazing avian-themed interior, it tastes even better – just some of the reasons why Zengo won Best Newcomer Restaurant at the 2017 Time Out Doha Restaurant Awards.
Sketch Lecture Room and Library
London’s culinary scene is one of the best in the world, and Sketch Lecture Room and Library is one of the jewels in its crown. Here, simply taking in the design is half of the experience – every room and wall is a canvas that has been beautifully decorated, and wherever you look the perfect marrying of light, colour and flair is nothing short of dazzling.
The menu continues this theme, with dishes like bream sashimi and langoustine consommé with wild garlic, kaffir and dill, blood-orange jelly and spring cabbage bowling over the senses.
