Love Sushi?

Quintessentially American? The Cowfish restaurant on Sharon Road features "burgushi," a culinary fusion of burgers and sushi.

Sushi has really taken off in recent years as we meat-and-potatoes Americans develop more adventurous tastes. The monthly food show on Charlotte Talks tackled the trend on Friday. Host Mike Collins and Chef-on-Assignment at Johnson & Wales, Peter Reinhart navigated the vast and varied world of sushi. They were joined by the Executive Chef at The Cowfish – a restaurant by SouthPark Mall that specializes in sushi and burgers and even merges the two to form “burgushi.”

Sushi isn't always raw - the word technically means "seasoned rice." Some of the goodies from Cowfish and Hissho Sushi in WFAE's Spirit Square studio in uptown Charlotte.
