Brazilian-Japanese fusion cuisine? No, I've never heard of it either. Pacific Rim cuisine, yes. French-Hawaiian cooking, sure. Anglo-Thai-Vietnamese, OK. But combining the food of Rio and Tokyo on the same menu seems bizarre. Brazil has given the world's restaurants enormous slabs of seared meat, cassava and a bean stew called feijoada in whose black depths disgusting porky intestines can be found lurking. Japan, by contrast, deals in sushi, sashimi, miso, tofu and soy, and emphasises subtlety and visual delicatesse in its toy dishes. The food cultures couldn't be more different. Yoking them together is like persuading Ronaldinho to consort with the comic-strip heroine from an anime film. But I'm told that Sao Paolo houses the largest Japanese population after Japan itself, that it's a century since the first immigrants arrived and that Liberdade (or Japan Town) is crammed with cleverly adapted sushi joints. Some form of mongrel cuisine has clearly become popular in the south American metropolis. What can it be like?
