Are you a foodie? There are so many different types of foods out there, from Korean to American to Japanese. Each bring a number of different flavors and unique dishes.
Fusion cuisine, including Asian Fusion, is a newer type of cuisine that’s a growing trend. If you’ve ever gone to an Asian Fusion restaurant, you probably found some delicious and unique takes on more traditional foods. Whether Asian Fusion is one of your favorite types of food or you want to learn more about it before giving it a try, read on!
Asian Fusion Definition
Asian Fusion has been around for a long time in other countries, but it wasn’t until the 1960s that it started to become popular in the United States. Since then, it’s really taken off — you can find it all over the country, even in small towns.
This type of cuisine is characterized by a few different ways to use Asian style dishes and ingredients. A chef could incorporate ingredients that are more traditionally found in Asian dishes in other style dishes. Or, they could use ones that aren’t traditionally found in Asian cuisine in different dishes. Asian Fusion is really about experimenting with different flavors, ingredients, cooking techniques and more to create something new.
Examples of the Cusine
Asian Fusion is a bit of a blanket term — you can use it to describe all kinds of different foods and restaurants. In case you’re still having trouble imagining what types of foods qualify, here are a few examples:
- Sushiritto: You might have seen it in your Instagram or Twitter feed — it’s a burrito made of sushi ingredients. Instead of a tortilla, you have seaweed. Instead of beef, rice, lettuce and beans inside, you’ll find fish, sushi rice, veggies and other ingredients.
- Banh Mi: Many people think of these Vietnamese sandwiches as a more traditional dish, but it’s actually a fusion. The sandwich is filled with foods found in traditional Vietnamese cooking, but they’re inside a French baguette from when colonizers from France came to Vietnam.
- Kimchi Quesadillas: Like the sushiritto, this dish is a fusion between Asian and Tex-Mex cooking. Kimchi is a popular food across several Asian countries, and now you can eat it in a crunchy tortilla shell.
If these dishes sound like something you’d like to experience, try out an Asian Fusion restaurant in your area.
