Indo-Dutch Is The Tastiest Fusion Food You’ve Never Had

“Some people wonder, ‘Can you talk about colonialism?’ Yes we can, especially when we talk about food”

Fusion cuisine has long been a hot commodity in the restaurant industry—with flavors and ingredients from disparate countries and cultures being mashed together in an effort to reinvent meals and create new combinations.

And Oregon restaurant chain Koi Fusion blends Korean specialties with sandwich mainstays like the Reuben, cheesesteak, and slider.
