What Do STL Restaurants Mean When They Describe Their Cuisine as Fusion?
Anyone who is at all interested in different types of food is sure to have come across the term 'fusion' cuisine at least once. Fusion foods are quickly becoming popular, especially among newer restaurants in busy cities that want to stand out. But what does fusion mean? If you're like most, you have no real idea and wouldn't be able to say whether fusion means that the restaurant serves their dishes blended, or some other exotic format. Lucky for you, it's nothing quite as bad.
Fusion: The simple definition of fusion food is a dish that uses one or more cultures. Many restaurants use the term to exhibit simple cultural diversity, while others use it to literally say that they offer fusion dishes combining one culture with another. Salads with Nori, poached tofu, and taco pizza are all common examples of traditional fusion dishes.

For example, Asian Fusion is the most common type of fusion cuisine. However, French, Mexican, and Pacific Rim each have their own distinct flavors of fusion foods. Read more
