Located in the centre of the city, Fusion Gourmet is a great new addition to Edinburgh’s food scene. Since opening in late 2016, this top-notch restaurant has been delighting diners with its delicious, authentic Chinese cuisine, specialising in dishes from the Szechuan province. Inside, the contemporary decor provides a clean, relaxing space in which to dine. Comfortable banquette seating stretches across one side of the restaurant, while cosy tables ﬁll the rest of the space, creating a lively, communal atmosphere.
The extensive menu offers an array of tasty treats. Starters such as salt and chilli spare ribs, crispy aromatic duck and satay chicken skewers are sure to please. There’s also a range of traditional dishes such as slices of succulent beef and ox tongue in a ﬁery chilli sauce, and jellyﬁsh in special house sauce. For the main course, there’s an offering to satisfy every palate, whether you’re a meat-eater, seafood-lover or vegetarian. Seafood options include succulent teppanyaki squid, wok-fried spicy Szechuan crab, and steamed sea bass with ginger and spring onions. Meat-lovers will be delighted by the array of options available. The menu is divided into categories, spanning beef, lamb, pork and poultry dishes. Particularly impressive is the beautifully tender sliced beef with enoki mushrooms and black pepper sauce, and free-range chicken with tea tree mushrooms and sweet potato vermicelli, as well as the ﬂavoursome honey-stewed char siu, comprising roasted pork belly in a mouth-watering barbecue sauce.
Fusion Gourmet is the perfect place to discover what gourmet delights China has to offer. Healthy dishes like steamed scallops with garlic and vermicelli noodles prove that authentic Chinese cuisine is a world away from the unhealthy dishes we have come to expect. You can also order food to take away direct from their website, and enjoy authentic restaurant-quality Chinese food delivered straight to your door – the perfect treat for a cosy night in.
