Now that Chinese, Japanese, Mexican and Middle Eastern food is mainstream on menus, consumers are eager to sample less-familiar global cuisines. Diners are interested in trying Ethiopian, Moroccan, Turkish, Israeli, Korean, Indian, Malaysian, Indonesian and Vietnamese dishes, according to Technomic’s Ethnic Food & Beverage Consumer Trend Report.

FSD’s Culinary Council members are ahead of the curve, already delving into these cuisines and more on their menus. And they plan to expand that global reach in 2020, as well as offer more regional American preparations.
