Fancy yourself some butternut squash and feta falafel? Perhaps some Tandoori chicken naan pizza? Then what you may be craving is fusion food.
Fusion food is a general term that refers to the combination of various styles of cookery from different cultures – even regions – to create a new kind of dish. Fusion foods, especially Asian fusion, are becoming increasingly popular worldwide and often feature East Asian, South-East Asian and South Asian dishes alongside one another, offering dishes that are an innovative, inspired combination of these cuisines.
The reasons for employing the fusion cooking technique may vary; from chefs wanting to expand their culinary repertoire and inject their own unique identity into their cuisine to come up with dishes that are truly distinct from their competitors’, to wanting to cater to a generation of more adventurous diners. Hugo Chetcuti – part owner of Hugo’s Lounge and brains behind the Hugo’s brand – sought to merge cultures and cuisines into one amazingly vast and creative menu.
Fusion crystal rolls: Try our pieces of hand-crafted, delicate rice paper rolls prepared with various fillings, including duck, breaded chicken, prawn and smoked salmon or a fusion crystal platter for when you can’t choose between them!
Modern maki: Have you tried our tasty delights? Treat both your eyes and taste buds with our strawberry prawn maki (true eye-candy) or perhaps our chicken nuts Maki. Or if, like Hugo Chetcuti, you’re indecisive, share the ‘New Style Maki Platter’ which includes a selection of each of the mouth-watering new style maki.
The wide selection of Pan-Asian dishes at Hugo’s Lounge guarantee a unique Eastern gastronomic experience. Our creative chefs use only the finest ingredients (and a lot of passion), promising the robust and authentic flavours of Asia with a modern twist to tantalise your palate and soul.
