Chef Jonathan Wu of LES's Fung Tu Explains Why Asian Fusion Shouldn't Have Bad Rap

Fung Tu is a Chinese and Asian Fusion restaurant on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side / Chinatown border.

In this video from Eater's Consumed series, watch as host Kat Odell sits down with chef/owner Jonathan Wu to find out why Asian Fusion restaurants sometimes get an undeserved bad reputation.

Asian fusion has a reputation for being an inelegant attempt at toning down dishes from across the world to suit the bland American palate. But a stronger interest in global cuisine, plus better access to foreign ingredients, has yielded a new generation of “fusion” cooking that has sparked diners interest from coast to coast.
