On our last trip to Universal Orlando Resort, we made a reservation for The Cowfish. Known for their burgers and sushi, it was quickly put at the top of my husband's request list.
Walking into this multi-level establishment, you will find the host stand and an elevator. After checking in, my daughter enjoyed playing a large touchscreen fish game while we waited to be seated. As we exited the elevator upstairs, we saw the coolest fish tank that looked like a bowl of ramen complete with chopsticks sticking out.
We were seated next to the window with views of CityWalk. Although this restaurant is known for burgers and sushi, there is definitely something for everyone. To begin, we had the Crab Rangoon Dip as seen in the first pic above. A play on a traditional favorite at most Asian restaurants, this dip is my new favorite way to enjoy these bites. The creamy dip had a delicious parmesean panko crust on the top and was served with wonton chips drizzled with sweet chili sauce.
For our entrees, my husband ordered a couple sushi rolls. Our kids enjoyed the Gorilla cheese bento box and I opted for the Chicken Bacon Avocado sandwich.
Can't decide between sushi and a burger? No problem, one of the coolest things about this restaurant are their bento boxes. These combo meals include a mini burger, a four-piece sushi roll, or three pieces of nigiri, and fries. Another interesting menu feature is Burgushi. This is just as it sounds, a sushi roll that is filled with burger fillings. We were tempted to have one of their amazing milkshakes for dessert, but we were just too stuffed, so we opted to skip it and have dessert at a later time in the parks.
Overall, we would definitely make another trip to this spot. The casual atmosphere and family-friendly menu make it the perfect spot for your next Universal vacation. Reservations are highly recommended, but same day reservations are sometimes available.
