Located right by Southpark Mall is Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar. I would say it’s the perfect place to go after a day of shopping, but you have to time it right or you’ll wait forever. If you’re lucky and have a small party, you might be able to find seats at the bar.
This is one of the only places where you can satisfy both of your cravings, for sushi and burgers; and it works perfectly if you and your partner have different cravings.
The menu is extensive, and even that might be an understatement. You have every choice from edamame to parmesan truffle fries to burgers with jalapeño cream cheese to lamb burgers to your favorite traditional or specialty sushi role and even “burgushi” which is as it sounds, a combination of burgers and sushi.
I tend to get burgers when we go, and usually the biggest one I can find. Our waitress last time recommended ordering the trio of sliders which can be made into any of the specialty burgers (great tip for next time). I LOVE the jalapeño popper show stopper which is full of spice and a 1/2 pound of beefy goodness. Also? The sweet and spicy cucumber side is a MUST!
My husband is a sushi lover and has it at least once a week. He always ventures out and orders the most creative roll he can find, and this one was no exception.
Surprisingly, even though they are always slam packed, the service doesn’t suffer. Even when the bar is completely full, your drinks keep coming, and trust me, you want to try a few cocktails or craft beers.
The bar also extends around to the sushi bar. So fun to sit there and watch all the specialty rolls being created. Not only does the restaurant have indoor seating and lots of bar space, they have a patio area that’s open in the summer and covered and heated in the winter. Cowfish has done a great job with their decor, keeping everything bright and popping.
I highly recommend checking out this special place, but go for a late lunch. 2:00 PM is a great time and the wait is usually short, if at all. You’ll definitely be met with a delicious meal and fun dining experience!
