When it comes to the two cuisines fighting for the number one spot in our hearts, burgers and sushi hold a firm lead. The two different flavors may be too different for some people to mix together, but the fusion is a hit at this one North Carolina eatery. This Charlotte sushi restaurant has burger infused sushi rolls, and the unconventional pairing has rave reviews.
Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar is a colorful sushi and burger fusion spot that's dishing up new takes on classic dishes.
"Burgushi" is the off-the-wall combination that gives the restaurant its character. According to their 4.5-star rating on Yelp, the city seems to be buying the pair right up.
They proclaim to be the first restaurant to serve these types of rolls. The hardiest and most patriotic roll is the "All-American Bacon Double Cheeseburgooshi," filled with beef, bacon, cheese, onion, and wrapped in friend soy paper and potato strings.
Even outside of the beef-filled rolls, you can experiment with a pulled pork infusion, filet mignon and tuna bacon rolls.
For those with a wide flavor palette, the bento boxes featuring sushi and mini burgers will satisfy both of your cravings.
If sandwiches are more of your calling, the inventive burgers featuring hormone-free beef, turkey, bison or lamb can easily fill you up.
The hardy half-pound portions feature everything from various Asian flavors or as Southern as it gets pimento cheese.
Rumbling stomachs will likely be best satisfied on Tuesday where there are half-price Martinis and Wednesday when the wine bottles are also half off.
Leave full and happy, but not before snapping a pic with the iconic cowfish itself.
