Oh Fish!

If you learn anything about the fast food in D.C, it should be that it takes you out of the normal hamburger and fries combo. Oh Fish is yet another venture in the D.C fast food scene that supports my last statement. I am almost sure I do not want to put Oh Fish in the fast food category. The ingredients are far from fast and the fruity tea selections that are made daily take more than two minutes to create. After receiving an invitation to try out the new restaurant from Chef Kaz Okochi of Kaz Sushi Bistro, I made my way down to the bustling downtown lunch scene.

The process is simple: You grab a menu, pencil in your selections, they prepare the sushi rolls based on the ingredients you penciled in, take your sushi to go or dine on one of the high top tables in the restaurant.

Similar to the concepts of Cava Meze Grill and Merzi, Oh Fish broadens the realm of this new quality fast food movement by adding sushi to the mix. The thing I appreciate most about Oh Fish is that I can now choose exactly what I want in my sushi. Take for instance my selections that day: the cooked crab stick, asparagus, cilantro and sweet tofu topped with the soy-tofu sauce. This was not your average maki where I decided to skip additions such as the cream cheese filling and the sesame seeds. It was perfect!

Now I’m not a huge sushi/maki fan, but when I can do it myself I’m willing to convert. For a downtown DC lunch on the go, I suggest you stop in for some Oh Fish. Think outside the box and see how creative you can make your sushi…wild imagination=the best sushi of your life.
