Fusion food

Anyone know of any good fusion food restaurants in Toronto?

    Swish by Han is an interesting experience. A tapas-style Korean restaurant down by Church and Wellington.
    Items include kimchi'ed pears, "swish" which is essentially shabu-shabu. I really liked the congee that they made with the leftover broth. I'd say it's worth a try - perhaps go for lunch instead of dinner if you're hesitant, as the prices are a little lower

      I second this one, their spicy pork tacos are delicious -- Korean-style meat on taco shells. The idea may be something that came from LA where both taco trucks and Korean businesses are ubiquitous.

      I think Nyood does a good job with fusion... plenty of creative use of spices and flavours. www.nyood.ca.

        Fusion, seems like a word from another era. I think George would consider themselves a fusion restaurant. I can't say every dish is consciously drawing influence from certain cultures, but you will see techniques and ingredients taken from a wide range of cultures and mixed in innovative ways. They do a great tasting menu.
        Susur would have fit the bill. I haven't been to Madeline, so I can't comment. Lee's would be another option.

          Apparently in NY, Susur had a cheeseburger springroll on his menu, how's that for fusion? If he takes it off his menu, stoners around NY will be at a lost.

            Cheeseburger springroll, I'd try that just for the adventure.
