4 fun and tasty fusion dishes we spotted on TikTok
Fusion foods combine elements of various culinary traditions that originate from different countries. The concept of fusion foods is not new to the global culinary scene but in 2021 it gained popularity again and resulted in the creation of many much-loved fusion food dishes.
Humans have been sharing their cultural heritage for decades and with this, the birth of food fusions welcomed a number of dishes that are the perfect blend of flavours. Fusion foods do not only include the blending of flavours from different cultures but also be demonstrated in the use of different culinary techniques, textures and methods to create new dishes.
While some may consider this a ‘foodie crime’ – we believe that it is the merger of the best of both worlds, yielding absolutely delicious results!
We recently spotted a few fusion dishes that we would love to try:
Burritos are a staple in Mexican cuisine and when you merge the culinary tradition of wrapping your food with the Asian-inspired and flavoured ingredients of a poke bowl, you get a poke buritto.
@feedmi It sounded crazy at first but I love it! What do you think? 🤔 #sushiburrito #poké #fusionfood #spicymayo #sushiroll #atxfood #pokeworks ♬ The Hustle – Van McCoy

Chicken Tikka Tacos
The science behind this creation is wonderful, it’s almost like chicken tikka curry on naan with the added fresh and zesty flavours of a traditional taco.

Kimchi loaded fries
Korean culture is known for its deep love of traditional fermented Kimchi. Rich in flavour, with both a salty and spicy flavour profile paired with fries this is sure to be a winner for us.
