Fusion^6

Here is today’s ultimate example of fusion cuisine. From Cali Deli in Menteng: Java Bread.

The backstory: the owner of Cali Deli, Ching Ching Sumampaouw, is an ethnic Chinese Indonesian who went to California and discovered banh mi, the French-Vietnamese fusion sandwich. She brought it back to Jakarta and made a version that fits Indonesian tastes, including Dutch cheese and chocolate (from the Dutch) and bananas.

So altogether, your basic Chinese-Indonesian-Dutch-French-Vietnamese-American sandwich. No, I didn’t try it.
