'The future of popular food is the fusion of street food from around the world,' says Carlos Gremone, a Venezuelan chef, who, along with publicist Debora Schneider, converted a bar with a lunch menu into a top sandwich and burger spot. Gremone has travelled half the world and has 20 years of experience in Italian Michelin-starred restaurants. Each one of his creations at Bar Centro (12 sandwiches and 11 hamburgers) are born out of hours of refining recipes. The place could have ended up without an arse in a seat if he hadn't got it as right as he did: an American pulled pork sandwich with a touch of Peru (basil and coriander) is dressed with a sweet-and-spicy sauce with chilli and ginger (Thai influences), and comes together making perfect sense. They make everything from scratch and just right.
