The original idea for the restaurant is from California, but it could be Brazilian due to this very different union of flavors. It's like you're on a pizza rotation to eat sushi, it's something very similar, because it has:

  • fish.

Japanese food is a hit because it is light, since in Orlando it is very hot most of the time and also for those who want a quick digestion. Another important point is that not everyone likes sushi.

In this case, having the option of a sandwich ends up pleasing most people, as well as the traditional dishes, in addition to, of course, drinks and drinks for those over 21 years old.
