Why is Fusion Cuisine Popular?

At Surf N Turf Tacos, it should come as no surprise that we’re big fans of fusion food. After all, we opened a fusion food restaurant. That said, we understand that not everyone may understand why fusion cuisine has seen such a boon in popularity over the past few decades.

Below, we’ll give some of the reasons why fusion cuisine is so popular, as well as outlining Surf N Turf Tacos’s unique place in the scene. We hope this helps you understand the appeal of this type of cuisine.


On the most basic level, fusion cuisine offers an incredible amount of diversity that you can’t get anywhere, which makes sense, since it boils down to taking bits and pieces from two different culinary traditions. This means ideas from all over the world can be used to make a great fusion meal.

However, one of the interesting things about fusion is the different ways in which people choose to combine different cultures. There are three major methods outlined by food fusion expert David Farbacher: one enhances a specific dish from one cuisine with the style of another cuisine; another creates new dishes entirely by borrowing from two different cuisines; and the third type of cuisine takes a cooking culture and combines it with specific dishes or cultures.

Many kinds of cooking require specific ingredients, tools or techniques. Fusion food is more a way of thinking, encouraging you to expand your horizons and think about the possibilities that come from the merging of cultures.
