The Best Paella – Zen Fusion Restaurant

Hey friends! This is a food post dedicated to my favorite restaurant in Charlotte: Zen Fusion. It’s a Spanish tapas place infused with some more Asian style dishes. Although, I do tend to go for the tapas because the flavors are incredible! Chorizo makes anything taste better. It’s the supreme of meats. Weirdly that description does not seem to endorse chorizo well.


I’ve been going to this place for about 8 years now, which tells you how good it is. The restaurant itself is pretty contemporary and the waiters are the friendliest. It has everything that a fantastic restaurant needs. I’m pretty boring, so I get practically the same thing every time.

Gambas al Ajillo (Sautéed Shrimp in Garlic & Olive Oil)
Steamed Pork Pot Stickers
Seafood Paella a.k.a. The Main Event

The seafood paella with chorizo. The flavors are so intense and the seafood is fresh AF. I never use the term AF, but that’s just how good it is. I’m not proud of myself. Now I’m cringing.



Lastly, the mousse dessert is one of my favorite desserts. There are three layers: first, a layer of dense chocolate cake, then milk chocolate mousse and vanilla bean mousse at the top! Okay, I get way too excited over food.

    Paella….makes me hungry just thinking about it. I would almost give up the luscious dessert to have a second helping.
