Eastern comfort food sees a dramatic flair for imaginative indulgence

Implications - Traditionally served as classic comfort food, dumplings and wontons are seeing a reimagining within Japanese and Korean cuisine, sparking the imaginations of consumers far and wide with completely revitalized formats. Immersed in tradition and culture, Eastern cuisine is increasingly incorporating sensorial engagement through innovative formats and unique positioning that lends an air of exiting freshness and forces the diner to rethink their expectations. This shift speaks to the globalization of emerging consumer inclinations towards experiences.
