Fusion Bistro at Karaikudi

Nithila's new found favorite food joint in Karaikudi

We were returning back to karaikudi after a long drive that drove us hungry. The name "Fusion Bistro" on an advertisement board at the Periyar statue junction made us curious...we quickly set our google map and drove to the cafe cum restaurant destination. We had no clue about the place. We were surprised that it was tucked away from the main road in a side street, quite an unlikely location for a 'fusion' restaurant!
Chef David

As we entered , we were welcomed by the young Owner and Chef David Amirtharaj. He quickly gave us an orientation of his offering in the fusion cuisine. He also shared his personal story...he had worked as chef abroad mastering Italian and continental cuisine. He had come home on vacation from Australia when Covid19 stuck and changed his life forever. He lost his dad to Covid and decided to stay back with his mom and start his own venture in his native home. Fusion Bistro was soon born out of David's overseas experience in continental cuisine and his roots in local Chettinad cuisine. David has a wide range of exquisitely unbelievable fusion dishes to offer that you can not imagine to be available in this part of the world! 
We ordered Honey chilli Chicken and crispy fried calamari with Tartar sauce for starters. They were delicious and well presented in 5 star style as well. David suggested we try his thin crust pizzas. We ordered barbeque chicken pizzas and were extremely happy with our decision..

Our favorite here is the thin crust pizza... The best pizzas we have had so far ..perfectly crunchy and flavorful!

The only drawback was the interior ambience..quite gaudy and not matching up to the high standard David has set for his food! I wish he had it designed by an Architect to reflect his fusion cuisine! But I am sure most people here don't bother about the interior design as long as its kept neat and hygienic. 

Iam sure we will be visiting Fusion Bistro again on all our future visits to Karaikudi. There is a huge list of items on David's menu that are waiting to be tasted!
