Last night was a mid-week date night. Work’s been busy and a night out was just what I needed.
A new Thai Fusion spot opened down the street and it’s been calling my name every time I walk by.
What’s your take on the whole fusion trend these days? Seems like every restaurant is calling itself “fusion.” I like the idea of blending two cuisines, but sometimes I feel like they just call themselves that to attract foodies.
Blackwood’s menu was pretty typical Thai…not sure where the fusion came in (except on their brunch menu which had Pad Thai Eggs Benedict…). All the veggies and meats, however, are organic…double yum
We ordered Pad Thai…and another peanut noodle dish that doesn’t look very appetizing in the photo so I won’t post it.
And the best part? Leftovers for tonight’s dinner!
But back to fusion…
Here are some favorites and random ideas….
Tacos with BBQ sauce
Pizza bagel (that count?)
Tempura rice noodle rolls
But in general, I’m perfectly fine leaving my cuisines to eat by themselves…no need to fuse…..
-Are there a lot of fusion places near you too?
-If you were to “fuse” any two foods, what would they be? (I think the cookie brownies from a couple weeks ago count!)
-Restaurant preference?- Thai, Chinese, or Japanese?
