FusionFest Offered a World of Good Eating

Written By Scott Joseph On November 26, 2018

Fusionfest samosa

The first FusionFest was held Saturday and Sunday on Seneff Arts Plaza in front of the Dr. Phillips Center in downtown Orlando. It was a two-day celebration of the area’s diversity, with a parade of flags, multicultural entertainers, and food, food, food.

A number of diverse food vendors lined the plaza, which I consider to be Orlando’s Front Yard.

Fusionfest Serbia Terry

Organizer Terry Olson was spotted by the Serbian food stand.

I thought the sign on this African vendor was redundant when I saw that the food was “Togo,” but it meant that it was the cuisine of the nation of Togo. Don’t see that too often.

El Fogòn Sabroso had some delicious Rice with Pigeon Beans and roast pork.

El Fogon Sabroso Fernicito

I tried the Fernicito, a drink made with Fernet, an Italian amaro, and Coke. Quite herbaceous.

Fusionfest chicago

Even Chicago was presented.

It was great fun to have a world of choices. Can’t wait to see next year’s FusionFest.
