Mediterranean

To make a Funtastic Fusion, grab a handful of Mediterranean Flavour: the salt of the sea, the warmth of the sun, zesty lemon, sweet tomato, the fragrance of fresh herbs and olive oil...this is what the Med is all about. Good times and flavoursome food.

fragrant oregano

With its hearty, assertive flavour and fragrant properties, a waft of oregano immediately makes you think of a Mediterranean kitchen.

aromatic basil

Basil is extremely aromatic with a scent of pepper, anise and mint. The taste is sweet, but savoury, and, just like the smell, it is peppery yet ever so slightly minty.

sweet tomato

A complex combination of tastes that stimulate the tongue in 3 key areas: sweet, sour and savoury. A good tomato will have all three flavours working in combination which explodes in a medley called "balanced."

olive oil

The olive was native to Asia Minor and spread to the rest of the Mediterranean basin 6,000 years ago. It is among the oldest known cultivated trees in the world - being grown before the written language was invented.

zesty lemon

Brightens up any meal! Loaded with antioxidants, packed with Vitamin C and offering a zesty zing - what’s not to love?

zing of onion

Onions are extremely popular in Mediterranean cuisine, adding a baseline of sweet and earthy flavour to cooked dishes, and contributing a spicy accent when served raw.

rice: the filling

The history of sushi began around the 8th century in Japan. The original type of sushi was first developed in Southeast Asia as a means of preserving fish in fermented rice.

prawn: the royalty

Prawns are considered one of the tastiest ingredients in sushi. Blush flesh with a slightly sweet taste. They are the royal flush!

soya sauce: the salt

Made from fermented soya beans, salt, water and barley. Brings out the flavour of your sushi.

wasabi: the burn

Wasabi has an extremely strong pungency, similar to hot mustard, producing vapours that stimulate the nasal passages more than the tongue.

ginger: the cleanse

Ginger is a palate cleanser in between bites of sushi. Not meant to be eaten at the same time as your sushi.

avo: the texture

Avo is a modern addition to sushi. The fruit is not sweet, but distinctly and subtly flavoured, adding a smooth texture to any roll-style sushi.

seaweed: the wrapping

Loaded with nutritional value. In fact, seaweed has the highest density of vitamins and minerals of any vegetable on the planet!

cucumber: the balance

A mild, almost watery flavour with a light melon taste. Cucumber brings balance to the tip of your tongue.

salmon: the meat

A buttery, dose of healthy, high protein that will melt in your mouth. It’s the centre of the sushi universe.

asian

Wrap it in a classic Asian delicacy: A meditative slice of salmon, the gentle crumbling of fluffy rice, a flash of wasabi and ginger to cleanse, all things have their place. A perfect balance on your tongue.
