The popular Frushi returns with a dish that’s just as pleasant as previous years. Not only does Frushi taste great, but it looks good too. The sweet rice wrapped around the different fruit made for a crisp and refreshing snack.

The slider was incredible. This was probably our favorite from the booth. The bread was super soft and had a lightly sweet flavor. The Panko breaded beef patty had a perfect crunch and awesome flavor. We would definitely get this again!

*NEW* Salmon Flower Ikura: Fresh-cut Salmon, Salmon Roe, Spinach, Watermelon Radish, and Chilled Ramen tossed with Poke Sauce – $8.25

This was delicious and served in an incredibly adorable flower pot. The noodles were cooked very well; they weren’t mushy at all. The cool noodles and salmon paired well very together.

*NEW* Kirin Draft Beer (5.0% ABV) – $4.50

According to Kirin Ichiban, their beer boasts an “all malt formula using only the finest two-row barley malt. European noble hops. A distinctively rich flavor, smooth finish, no bitter aftertaste.”

*NEW* Strawberry Nigori Sake – $7.50

The strawberry sake was awful. None of us enjoyed it. It’s just got a harsh taste that makes it hard to drink.

*NEW* Furano Martini: Vodka, Lavender Syrup and Yuzu Juice – $7.50

The martini was delicious. It wasn’t too sweet, but you could taste the alcohol. This was a great option from a overall impressive Outdoor Kitchen.
