This has nothing to do with the intent of the thread topic, but just wanted to chime in and say some of the best Japanese sushi I've ever had was in Mexico. The fresh water eels were tastier than any I've had in the US and finding red snapper on the nigiri menu was a delight - and delicious.

That said, Guy Fieri is a hack :-)

He's the real deal, sskink, but not everyone appreciates his food. His restaurants, particularly Johnny Garlic's, were very successful long before the Food Network discovered him. He's also a genuinely nice, if quirky, man. And very driven!

He knows how to make money, I'll grant you that. His ability to appeal to a lower common denominator as far as capitalizing on American food trends is unparalleled as far as celebrity "chefs" go. I don't deny him that success.

Philadelphia rolls have been a thing for years and years.

Maybe what I am about to say makes me a hypocrite because I like crab rangoons and southwestern egg rolls, but I'm not really a fan of "fusion" cuisine. If I want sushi, I'll go eat sushi. If I want jalepenos and cream cheese, I'll wrap them in bacon and make poppers on the grill. The idea of mixing the two seems unappetizing to me.

No such thing as hypocrite, if all you're saying is what foods you like. We like what we like, and it's not right or wrong.

Not for nothing, but some food combinationd turn out like, well, the food equivalent of Rumer Willis. Just because two cuisines taste great on their own doesn't mean that they combine so well.

I forgot what she looked like. So I did a GIS.

Your analogy is both remarkably cruel and incredibly brilliant.

Deep-fried cream cheese =/= sushi. If they are going to serve that stuff it needs an entirely different name.

A lot of what we call "traditional" cuisine is just "fusion" from the past, think of all those new world vegetables in old world cuisines (you wouldn't, or at least I wouldn't, want Italian food without tomatoes, or Thai food without hot peppers...).
