Can’t decide what kind of food to eat? It’s a common problem for Arizonans. There’s no shortage of great dining options that showcase the best flavors from different cultures. So why not try a fusion restaurant? These inventive eateries give you the best of both worlds by allowing you to eat multiple cultures’ food at once. Here are the best examples of fusion restaurants in the state of Arizona.
One dish is not enough at Sumomaya. The culinary masters behind this fusion restaurant recommend you try three to five dishes to share or keep all to yourself. That’s because this unique restaurant has tapas-style plates that showcase the best flavors from both Latin America and the Far East. You can snack on everything from sushi to tacos and ceviche at a single dinner. Add in dynamic options like coconut ahi tuna tartar and Mexican pho and Sumomaya is the fusion restaurant to beat in Arizona.
Mexican and Asian fusion may sound like an odd mix. That is until you have your first bite of the food at Chino Bandido. This fusion restaurant is the brainchild of a husband wife duo with both Chinese and Arizona roots. Chino Bandido blends cultural staples like rice bowls, burritos and quesadillas with dynamic fusion flavors. It’s rare to find a place where you can order chile relleno, Chinese barbecue pork, and egg foo yung. Word to the wise—don’t skip the jade chicken.
Asian food is a broad term. It could refer to Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese or Thai food. Fortunately, Totties Asian Fusion showcases the best flavors from all four cultures. This unique culinary experience lets you try all of your favorite Asian dishes under the same roof. Totties has a little bit of everything—Pad Thai, Vietnamese egg rolls, Shanghai pan-fried noodles, and Panang Curry. It’s a quintessential dining experience for any Asian food fan.
Indian food is oft forgotten in conversations about the best Asian foods. But you won’t leave it off of your list after a trip to Chennai Fusion Grill. They specialize in tasty Indian cuisine from the southern and northern parts of India. You’ll find everything from fresh naan to spicy Curry on the menu. Their wide selection of options also includes tandoori sizzlers and kabobs, Chinese fusion, and seafood.
Ling and Louie’s is a marriage made in culinary heaven. At least, that’s the motto behind this fun fusion restaurant. The concept revolves around a fusion between traditional Chinese and American comfort food. That’s why you’ll find East meets West pairings like Ling’s meatloaf, ahi poke tacos, and the big burger in little China. Ling and Louie’s also has a renowned drink menu that includes names like the Thai Mai, Kung Fu Cosmo, and Geisha’s gimlet.
