Universal CityWalk’s newest restaurant, The Cowfish, officially opened earlier this month. A while back I wrote about Cowfish coming to Universal and I have been anticipating its opening. This restaurant marks the 3rd location for The CowFish. I personally lived in the town where the original came to life in Raleigh, NC and now I live just outside of Charlotte, NC where the second location came to life. The opening of this third venue brings a lot of excitement for me. The Cowfish has dotted the thread of my life at one point or another and now I can even experience it at one of my favorite theme parks locations – it’s a little “Burgushi” at a home away from home for me.
For those of you that are wondering what the Cowfish it, it is known as the nation’s original “Sushi Burger Bar” and features an exciting menu that offers something for everyone. Exciting and innovative menu items like unique sushi rolls, one of a kind craft burgers, and “Burgushi” – a cutting-edge fusion of burger and sushi that offers the best of both worlds. “Burgushi” items include sushi rolls created using burger components and pick-up style sandwiches created using sushi ingredients.
Universal Orlando worked closely with The Cowfish founders, Marcus Hall and Alan Springate, to bring this one-of-a-kind dining concept to Universal CityWalk. Guests visiting the three-story restaurant can enjoy an innovative menu made from scratch with the freshest ingredients, outdoor seating with incredible views of CityWalk, colorful eclectic décor and custom artwork.
Menu creations at The Cowfish feature specialties like The Cowfish Bento Box (a combo meal including a gourmet mini-burger, sweet potato fries, Thai cucumbers, edamame and a choice of a four piece sushi roll), “The Prime Time” Filet & Lobster Burgushi Roll (lobster and cucumbers inside topped with seared rare seasoned filet mignon, pan-fried portabella mushroom slices tossed in truffle oil, green onions and spicy mayo) and The Texas Longhorn (a beef burger with cheddar cheese, onion strings, jalapeño bacon, tangy BBQ sauce, lettuce and tomato on a brioche bun). Guests can also enjoy family-style appetizers, spiked hand-crafted milkshakes, entrée-sized salads and homemade desserts.
The Cowfish is located on the first floor of CityWalk next to Red Oven Pizza Bakery, with a second floor back entrance located across from Bob Marley: A Tribute to Freedom. Its opening rounds out Universal Orlando Resorts year-long historic expansion to CityWalk and caps off an epic year for the famous theme park. Other new venues recently added as part of the expansion include VIVO Italian Kitchen, Red Oven Pizza Bakery, Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food and Hot Dog Hall of Fame.
