The Cowfish is much bigger inside than The Counter was. Apparently they expanded into the space next door, which was where we sat. I liked modern decor and trendy vibe.
All of us perused the huge menu trying to decide what to order. The possibilities are literally endless, with selections of sushi, burgers, or even combos of both which The Cowfish refers to as "Burgushi".
We started with some appetizers which The Cowfish provided on the house for all of us to try (Thanks Cowfish!!). I had tried several of them at the Eez Fusion preview dinner, but one was new to me: the Blackened Ahi Tuna Nachos- whoa, so good!

After enjoying our appetizers we decided to get on with our gift exchange. Teri had told us each to bring a gift under $10 to exchange. We went around the table and chose a gift. People who chose after you could "steal" your gift or choose a new gift.
Initially I chose a coffee cup, spoon, and bowl, but it was stolen from me, so I ended up with some edible treats from the Pure2Raw twins, which worked out great since I've been dying to try them!
Greg and I each tried a truffle when I got home and they were really good :)
Unable to decide whether I should order a burger or sushi, I ended up choosing a Bento Box so I could have both. It came with a slider cheese burger, Philly roll sushi, onion strings, edameme, and more cucumber salad. Everything was really good, but I'm kind of kicking myself that I ordered something so "safe", when The Cowfish has such interesting things to choose from. Next time I go I need to branch out of my comfort zone and get a crazy burger or inventive sushi since that is sort of the fun of going to a place like Cowfish.
Post dinner we all snapped a bunch of pictures of each other.

Thank you to Teri for organizing, and to The Cowfish for having us and feeding us yummy appetizers :) I will be back to express my more adventurous side next time!
