In ancient times, Silk Road was the trade route that connected the East Asia to the wide World, trading luxurious goods, culture and knowledge. Since then, Eastern influence is blending in with modern times and slowly changing the World.
Culinary is so much associated with Eastern influence and has growing popularity in the World. I remember that my History teacher taught us that Burger was actually the Western version of Chinese ‘pao’, and the creation of Chinese noodles has inspired the Italian to create the Spaghettis. Today, we have many different kind of fusion food that was inspired by the Eastern.
For example, my favorite Chicken rice sushi from Ruyi & Lyn. It is their signature dish which is a traditional cuisine with a modern twist. It seems ironic that the blending of eastern and western cuisines can have such different results.
Inspired by it, Silk Road is a platform that represents a journey of discovering the unknown and enrichment of self. It is a platform to showcase the opulent and contemporary culture of the orient.
