The final piece of Universal CityWalk’s expansion is now open as The Cowfish welcomes guests ready to get their hands on the “Burgushi.”
CityWalk’s newest restaurant brings the nation’s original “Sushi Burger Bar” to the heart of Universal Orlando’s entertainment complex. The Cowfish was first established in North Carolina and features a menu that offers something for everyone, including innovative sushi rolls, unique craft burgers, and “Burgushi” – a 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 this three-story restaurant can enjoy an innovative menu made from scratch with the freshest ingredients, outdoor seating with views of CityWalk, colorful décor and custom artwork, vibrant music and more.
Guests dining at The Cowfish can enjoy signature menu creations 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 the year-long historic expansion to Universal CityWalk. 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.
