Updated: 9 February 2017
Fusion is a popular cooking style that involves combining two types of cuisines. This particular style of cooking started to gain popularity in the 1970s. Chef Wolfgang Puck is credited for bringing this style to California with his restaurant Chinois, which served an exciting fusion of French and Chinese food. Many restaurants have adapted this style of cooking and created their own innovative dishes. Here’s a list of 10 of the best fusion restaurants in San Francisco.

The House

The House was opened in 1994 by Larry and Angela Tse who dreamed of incorporating Asian food with American elements. The restaurant is known not only for serving delicious food but also its homey atmosphere.
