Who's up for "burgushi?" Confused? The Cowfish is a burger and sushi joint – a fun and funky one – located amid the hustle and bustle of Universal Orlando and an ideal place to grab a bite before a night out hitting the various hotspots along the colorful loop of the CityWalk complex. And as this portmanteau suggests, sometimes they merge these concepts for some creative combos you might not have conceived on your own. Case in point: the High-Class Hillbilly roll. Billed as "Southern-Style Bar-B-Q-Shi" (give them props for that; it's adorable), this burger-sushi merger features pulled pork, caramelized onion and BBQ sauce. It's potato-wrapped, flash-fried and topped with house-made bacon cole slaw and chives. Sound weird? It might be. A little. But it's also darn tasty. Tokyo traditionalists will find plenty of more familiar sushi to sate, as will burger fans. Perhaps the next town Godzilla destroys will be Kansas City.
