Asian cuisine has gained popularity all over the world in recent years. You will find numerous styles of Asian restaurants in almost every city and town. There are many things that set this particular cuisine apart from other ethnic foods, but one of the main things that make it an original is the taste. The unique blends of herbs and spices that are used in Asian cooking creates a combination of flavors that is unparalleled.

Another reason that eating Asian food is such a profound experience is that many Asian cultures hold to a firm belief that the preparation is not just a craft, it is an art form. This is very apparent in the presentation of a plate of carefully arranged Sushi or in the precise placement of a certain food item on the plate. In some cases the placement of the food on the plate can actually tell a story.
