Lunch at The Cowfish


Lisette and Danny were a little amazed by the menu.  Sushi, burgers, burgshi (that’s burger ingredients in sushi form), milkshakes, appetizers, and even custom sushi rolls.


Cowfish is so popular that we had a 20 minute wait at the very odd lunch hour of 2:30 PM.  We didn’t mind, though. Lisette and Danny got to browse the extensive selection, and Henry practiced waving to the ladies.


I wanted to share what we got – and what Lisette and Danny got, too – because it was so delicious.


We started things off with an order of Sweet & Spicy Thai Cucumbers… “Crisp cucumber chunks marinated in our sweet chili pepper vinaigrette.”


As well as the Seasoned House Fries.  The fries come with two types of aioli dipping sauce – horseradish and garlic.


I got two Custom Rolls (as did the Husband). Mine had carrots, beets, tofu, and basil + tofu, asparagus, carrots, and cream cheese.


Lisette had a Spicy Tuna Roll, which was packed with avocado. And Danny had the Thundering Herd Bison Burger, “a half-pound chipotle bison burger topped with sharp white cheddar cheese and homemade guacamole, served on a sesame bun with red leaf lettuce, chipotle aioli and red onion.”


Afterwards, we walked the mall. I really want a new watch – a black on black one.  I found this watch, which I really liked, but I couldn’t pull the trigger in the store.  It was fun to shop with Lisette again; we spent many Saturdays and Sundays as teens roaming the mall. Winking smile

    Sushi is my absolute favorite — way to trigger the cravings. 🙂

    I need to invest in a watch! I completely depend on my cell phone which is kind of annoying. Sushi = NOM NOM 🙂

    Went to The Cowfish on your recommendation during a 48 hour business trip to Charlotte last year. Amazing! Can’t wait to make a return trip…

    Thundering Herd Bison Burger!? That HAS to be a reference to my Alma Mater! I went to college at Marshall University. Our mascot is the “Thundering Herd” (a buffalo). That can’t be a coincidence!!

    That is the best looking spicy tuna roll I’ve ever seen!

  • Kim March 26, 2013, 4:29 pm

    This made me so hungry for a veggie and tofu roll!

  • Erin @ The Elliptical Chronicles March 26, 2013, 6:34 pm

    That restaurant looks incredible! I love finding a place with so many varieties of food.
