The Cairo 360 Editors’ Choice Awards 2017: Fusion Cuisine Award Winners
In the past few years, Cairo has been exposed to a colourful range of cuisines that have never existed on the local dining map before. But just when we thought we’d seen it all, along came some truly remarkable fusion dining concepts – ones that produce innovative dishes by merging the techniques and ingredients of two traditional cuisines.
Though you can count fusion cuisine restaurants in Cairo on one hand, this category celebrates the brilliant brains behind the select few – the ones who took a risk and hit the mark.
Like its peers on this list, Izakaya has been bashed for its expensive prices; but anyone that has taken the time to enjoy a full-blown meal at the Japanese-Peruvian restaurant can attest to the fact that there’s nothing like it in Cairo. Delicious, creative, delicate dishes in a chic, modern setting that you can’t quite put into words.
Tapping into a global culinary trend, Keji is one of the counted places in Cairo that offers Nikkei cuisine, which uses Japanese cooking techniques on Peruvian ingredients. The excellent execution of the wide variety of the delicacies the place offers makes for an adventurous dining experience worth trying, again and again.
Under the guidance of Michelin Star chef, Laurent Peugeot, Le Deck offers a selection of excellent dishes, in which the refined culinary touch of the French meets the Japanese cuisine. Not only this, but the VIP service and the breath-taking view of Cairo and the Nile make dining at Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah’s Le Deck a stellar experience.
Located at Zamalek’s New President Hotel on the same floor where Amici once stood, Mezcal boasts more than just an elegant ambience; the place offers complex of flavours that celebrates the best of both Peruvian and Mexican cuisines.
