Menu and Food Trends for 2018

Top food trends to employ at your hotel.

In recent years, crazy and innovative food trends have taken the culinary world by storm. If you want your property to capitalize on viral food hits, here are some of the trends to incorporate into your property’s dining experiences.

  • Charcoal

Activated charcoal has been popping up in trendy eateries all over the country. Whether you incorporate it in your lattes, cocktails, or ice cream; including this pitch-black powder into your menu will create serious buzz amongst your diners.

  • Koji

While you may not have heard of koji before, it is more prevalent in the foodie community than you might think. Koji is actually the mold that produces miso, sake, and soy sauce. This interesting Japanese ingredient has experienced a spike in popularity in recent months, indicating that it may be on the cusp of becoming food’s next big thing.

  • Jackfruit

As vegetarianism and veganism continue to be major food trends, we are beginning to see new meat alternatives coming into vogue. Heralded as a healthy, sustainable meat replacement, jackfruit is getting more publicity than ever. Research suggests that this tropical fruit will continue making a splash in the U.S. culinary scene.

  • Poké

In 2017, the popularity of this Hawaiian-born delicacy took off nationwide. However, recent research has indicated a slight decline in the sale of these raw, marinated seafood bowls. That being said, poke does continue to be a strong seller and would be a welcome addition to your hotel’s menu.

These are some of the major food trends that your hotel should jump on this year. Want another way to revamp your hotel? Consider making some upgrades to your building and surrounding property. For assistance with your renovation needs, contact the experts at Parkwest General Contractors today.
