This example of dessert fusion does not just combine two different kinds of dessert to make a new creation, it also melds together two different cultures. Japanese sushi chain Kura Sushi mixed Italian tiramisu with Japanese sushi to make 'tiramisushi.' The food hybrid is a special offer in honor of Valentine's Day.

The dessert fusion consists of chocolate pudding wrapped in a layer of seaweed and then another layer of sushi rice. The whole thing is then rolled in cocoa powder and sliced into sushi rolls. A whipped mascarpone cheese serves as the topping. Although certainly unconventional, the Tiramisushi "is rich in chocolate, which marries with the sour and refreshing taste of rice." The decadent treat is meant to be enjoyed with coffee.
