Looking for something to eat in Ascunion? Of course, there are countless mouthwatering local steakhouses and filling pay-by-the-kilo Paraguayan buffets to choose from, many of which are surprisingly good. But sometimes we crave something a little more exotic. An experimental blend of international cuisine, perhaps? Here are the best food-fusion restaurants in town.

1. Sipan

Restaurant, Japanese, Fusion, Peruvian

A popular chain with numerous branches throughout South America, Sipan have brought Nikkei to Paraguay with style. This minimalist fine dining eatery only opened last year, but it has already garnered quite a reputation among the city’s most affluent foodies. Expect to find all the Japanese/Peruvian fusion classics on the menu such as ceviche and seafood sushi.

2. Fusion Resto

Restaurant, Fusion, Peruvian, South American

Spacious and elegant, Fusion Resto attracts a sophisticated crowd who come to relish in its refined Andean fusion fare. A range of creative and experimental Peruvian and Paraguayan fusion dishes adorn the menu, perfectly complemented by a selection of the finest South American wines. Vegetarians and vegans are particularly well catered for by the head chef who cooks up custom-made cruelty-free dishes on a whim.

3. Luna 21

Restaurant, Restaurant with Rooms, French, Italian, Fusion

After opening its doors just a few months ago, Luna 21 has been taking Asuncion by storm for its spectacular panoramic rooftop views. We hope you don’t have a fear of heights because this fancy French and Italian fusion restaurant sits on the 21st floor of the city’s World Trade Center, offering an exquisite dining experience in both the temperature controlled indoor salons as well as the breezy outdoor verandah. Just after drinks? This is the perfect spot for a sundowner as well.

4. Kure Dumas Slow Pizza

Pizzeria, Italian, Fusion

Pizza is the main attraction here, with each thick homemade base packed full of an assortment of fresh vegetables and spices picked straight from the garden. A mind-boggling array of different flavored pies can be found on the menu, including numerous creative combinations that span the pallet of the globe. Thankfully, slow refers to their admiration of the Slow Food concept rather than the service.

5. Sin Reservas

Restaurant, South American, Italian, Fusion

Located in the heart of the Recoleta dining district, Sin Reservas dishes out delicious Colombian and international fusion fare in its homely and intimate locale. The menu is rather seafood heavy – with trout, salmon, shrimp, and prawn being particularly popular – although their interesting take on pasta and risotto work is rather tasty as well.

6. Restaurante Seul

Restaurant, Asian, Korean, Fusion

Keen for an appetizing Asian fusion fix? Then check out this unpretentious pay-per-kilo restaurant just half a block from Plaza de la Democracia. All your favorite Korean delicacies such as spicy kimchi are on the menu, along with other oriental delights from all around the continent. If you’re coming for lunch, try to get in before 12:30 pm because this place seriously packs out.

7. Mokai Lounge

Bar, Cocktail Bar, Restaurant, Fusion, Japanese

As one of the city’s most stylish lounge bars, Mokai is where well-heeled locals got to mingle with their equally affluent peers. A solid selection of Japanese fusion is on offer, but if we’re being honest, there are probably better value options in town. Nevertheless, the upstairs nightclub Velvet is among the most stylish places to dance in Asuncion.
