Lunch at The Cowfish in Charlotte, North Carolina

Earlier this week I was in my hometown of Charlotte, NC catching up with my family and friends that I hadn’t seen since Christmas of last year! A lot has changed in Charlotte in just six months, including the opening of a new restaurant like nothing I have ever experienced before! My best friend from university invited me out to what she claimed was “the hardest place to get a table in town”- THE COWFISH. She wasn’t lying! When I arrived at the front door I was told, by a women with a clipboard, that there was a 45 minute wait for a table.  I took the beeper and began to move inside when I saw a friendly wave from across the seating area. Thank goodness Brook had already secured us a table! 

So here’s the deal with The Cowfish. They’ve basically solved the problem of one person wanting to go out for burgers and the other wanting to go out for sushi. Here, you can have either or both (called “Burgushi”)! Who knew that raw fish and grilled beef would make for such a delectable combination!? They claim to make the best burger in Charlotte, and I’d have to correct them on that statement. I think it might just be the best burger in the southern states! I know that’s a big statement to make but I consider myself a bit of a burger connoisseur and the mini burger I feasted on just melted in my mouth! I ordered the bento box on my visit – a combo meal that let’s you indulge in both sushi and a burger. It was delicious!

If you’re in the Charlotte area or plan on visiting soon, put this place on your “must visit” list. Here’s a few pictures of my lovely lunch with contact details below!
