These mashups I can do w/out…who’s with me on this?!?


Why have only one food item when you can enjoy the taste of two? Foodies across the world had a reason to rejoice as this year, unique hybrid food items became popular internationally. Here’s looking at some mash-ups that became a rage this year.

A combination of a croissant and a doughnut , this dessert is the brainchild of chef Dominique Ansel who owns an eponymous bakery in New York City. With its crusty exterior and sugary filling inside, cronut became a craze not only in the US but was also served at various Indian restaurants.

Ramen burger
Who would’ve predicted that in time to come, burger buns would be replaced by noodles? A creation of chef Keizo Shimamoto, this Japanese-American mash-up comprises meat patty that is sandwiched between compacted fried ramen noodles.

Waffle tacos
Introduced by Taco Bell, this hybrid breakfast option features a sausage patty and scrambled eggs folded into a waffle. Packaged in a way that can be eaten on-the-go, waffle tacos became so popular that the eatery is now dishing out different varieties like waffle tacos filled with cream and fruit and one with fried chicken, too.

Pizza burger
Are there times when you crave a pizza as well as a burger? Who wouldn’t love the option to eat both at the same time? Created by popular eatery in New York, a pizza burger comprises a nine-and-a-half inch sesame bread filled mozzarella, pepperoni, pesto and marinara sauce.

The cronut inspired several hybrid desserts, one of them was the cuffin. Made by combining the shape and soft inside of a muffin with the sweetness and chewy outside of a cookie, cuffin is served in several flavours like chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin as well as with a raspberry jelly filling.
