Ever experienced true power where you strut effortlessly into a restaurant, lower your sunglasses to the tip of your nose, flick your perfectly quaffed hair off your shoulder, look to the maitre de and say, ”Do you know who I am?”……..
Look at my face. Look at how calm and relaxed I am. At the denim shirt draping off my shoulder. At the breeze gently brushing the hair away from my cheeks. Well, looks can be deceiving.
I’m all for a good fusion. Japanese meets American (Ume Bar), French meets Japanese (Tetsuyas) or in this case South American meets Asian, Luis Tans. I love the idea of fusing together the bold and gutsy flavours of South America with the finesse of Asian food. And on paper it worked like a charm. On the plate……..not so much.
