Sometimes people are weird about fusion food. I think it stems from a time when fusion meant foods that went together that just didn’t make sense. Now, I feel like all the best food is fusion, even if it isn’t called fusion. Think Momofuku, Umami Burger, or Kogi. At fusion’s best, it is a mix of what’s awesome about one culture, combined with something ultimately delicious from another. Some of my favorite food is fusion, although I hesitate to call it that.
