The spot, at 147 W. Auburn Road, dubs itself as a "build your own" sushi bowl, wherein customers can pick and choose their favorite bite sized morsels of fish, rice, and veggies. They can also select a variety of signature bowl combos, including a spicy salmon, California, tempura, and tuna poke - most of which also are accompanied with an avocado mash (ahem, you mean like guacamole?).
