Latin fusion restaurants know they are on to something! There’s a reason this fascinating and delicious restaurant trend has been skyrocketing in the past few years, and it’s almost entirely due to the diversity of the menu. There is such a huge flexibility in the kinds of food that different establishments can provide underneath this umbrella. After all, “Latin” is often used to refer to all Spanish speaking cultures – Chilean, Dominican, Puerto Rican, Mexican, Spanish… saying “Latin cuisine” paints with a broad brush. Now, that’s already a huge category, but it’s escalated, and broadened even further by all of the endless combinations made possible by fusion.
There are just so many directions restaurants and chefs can take with this concept. There’s no way that there could be any sort of dullness or predictability between different Latin fusion restaurants. Everyone has the potential to really do it differently, offering a combination of all kinds of pan-Latin traditional meals, and innovative new flavor experiences created by mixing and matching different traditions.
Fine family dining can really be a great thing in a Latin fusion restaurant environment, given that very diversity. Menu variation means that large groups can always find something for just about anyone and everyone, from those of us who don’t like the intense spice of many traditional Mexican meals, or those of us who don’t eat meat at all. The spirit of customization is strong with a fusion food environment!
The popularity of Latin food in the United States of America has been incredibly popular ever since thousands of families from various Spanish speaking countries began to migrate and mix in and assimilate with the existing Western population. It is certainly no surprise that these cuisines continue to remain popular, even as new trends in the Latin food industry continues.
