The Cowfish: Burgers, Sushi & Burgushi


The Cowfish at Universal's CityWalk is a unique restaurant serving a combination of burgers and sushi which gives everyone in the family something to be happy about.  It is centrally located in CityWalk above Vivo Italian Kitchen with indoor seating. a beautiful patio seating area overlooking CityWalk below and has a modern eclectic vibe once inside. 


We chose to sit inside and started with some cocktails for the adults and appetizers for all to appease our hungry bellies.  The cocktails were top notch and the appetizers got us even more excited for the meal ahead as they were so delicious!  What was extra great about this place for us, is that it made sushi and seafood approachable for the kids so they were willing to try things they maybe wouldn't have otherwise so it was great to see them venture out of their comfort zone a bit! 
Buffalos and Bacon: Buffalo Trace bourbon, cherry liqueur, angostura and orange bitters, honey, candied bacon
Angel's Envy Manhattan
Blackened Tuna Nachos
Parmesan Bacon Truffle Fries
For the entrees our family was pretty split on burgers/sandwiches and sushi, with one of us even going for the famous "burgushi" which combines the best of both worlds.  The burger selection here is excellent, with lots of variety to choose from and something for everyone (including a chicken sandwich for your non-beef eaters) and the sushi ranges from basic to very creative (including a vegetarian sushi!) so it was hard for us to decide with so many great options to choose from, but our server was a huge help in narrowing things down with us. 
The Dynamic Duo: Beef burger, braised short rib, sweet roasted garlic, provolone cheese, tomato onion jam, lettuce, onion, tomato, onion roll
Tuna Roll
Doug's Filet Roll: Avocado, kani, cream cheese inside, topped with thin slices of seared filet mignon, spicy mayo, scallions, masago. Served with a side of pounded ginger sauce
The Jalapeño Popper Show-Stopper: Beef burger, jalapeño-infused cream cheese, jalapeño bacon, fried jalapeños, jalapeño citrus aioli, lettuce, tomato, fresh sliced jalapeños, brioche bun
Chicken Bacon Avocado: Grilled all natural chicken, applewood bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, wasabi mayo, brioche bun
Tropical Storm Roll: Kani, avocado and cucumber inside, topped with tuna, salmon, yellowtail, Japanese mayo, sweet eel sauce, sriracha and tobiko. Served with wasabi yuzu dipping sauce
PB&J Sushi Roll
Everyone was super happy with their food choices, even the PB&J sushi roll was a hit!  Everything was fresh, cooked well, and super tasty.  Everyone enjoyed venturing slightly out of their comfort zone and trying new things and it ended up being a favorite meal of the trip for the family.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
