Prior to opening, I was invited to test out the menu at the new Birmingham location of The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar located in the Summit Shopping Center (7/24/17). Now I know you're asking yourself "Why on earth would anyone want to merge a sushi menu with a burger menu?"
A genius. That's who!
I know the mascot is funny looking and some people just might not get it. However, once you get a taste of this outstanding fusion menu, you will definitely taste the greatness.
For this adventure, I enlisted one of my comrades to accompany me. It's always a great experience to share a meal with someone with a culinary background & an appreciation for "different" food & beverage concepts.
As a part of the soft opening, we were required to make reservations via the reservation system.
After arrival and a short wait, we received a text message as soon as the table was ready.
As we took our places amongst all of the other preview party attendees, we noticed the trendy, indoor scenery. The interior of the restaurant was colorful and inviting. The helpful staff members, including corporate trainers, were all dressed in black and scurrying around to take orders and deliver delicious meals.
We ordered an appetizer of Blackened Tuna Nachos: 5 wonton chips with Crab Rangoon Dip, avocado salsa, tomatoes, seared rare blackened yellowfin tuna and micro greens.
I would highly recommend this to even a person who has no desire to try something out of the norm. It was in my opinion, an amazing appetizer.
