Sushi Pop is a modern restaurant composed of Anime-inspired decor with a hint of molecular gastronomy. It’s appearance from the outside is quite deceiving as it blends right in with the other spaces in the plaza, but walk in and will feel as if you walked into one of those very trendy restaurants that you would only expect to see in big cities like New York and L.A. The decoration is lively with lots of bright colors, Japanase Mange style paintings on the walls and and on all the TVs around the dining room. They definitely make you feel like you dining somewhere in the big city.

A quick look at the menu and you’ll notice the influence of modern cuisine or, it’s more popular term molecular gastronomy in many of the dishes. Chef Chau leads his team in the direction of creativity and nuances with techniques of molecular gastronomy while utilizing local, Oviedo-grown ingredients whenever possible in many uniquely designed dishes. After seeing the menu we decided to try some of the most unique items on the menu. For starters we chose the Godzilla, a plate of tempura fried alligator tail served with hearts of palm salad with green onion, celery leaves and radishes, citrus and togarashi remoulad. Between the 2 rolls, this was most memorable only because of the use of alligator meat with a mix of fresh celery.

Their dessert offerings are great and very memorable. We ordered their most popular, PMS and their PBJ sorbet. What I enjoyed most about the desserts is that it was very entertaining! Their table side presentation of their freshly made sorbet is impressive and a crowd pleaser.

Al and I had a great time at Sushi Pop from the ambiance to the food, this place is fun, interesting and unique. I can see this being a great casual place for a date, especially for newcomers. There are conversation starters all around the dining room and the PB&J sorbet table-side presentation is very entertaining but my favorite between the two is the PMS. The salted caramel ice cream really made the PMS dessert stand out! What a great combo! I highly recommend this place for dessert, plus it is a great date place in Oviedo.

    I agree that the interior of Sushi Pop is SO different from its unassuming location and exterior. We are frequent visitors of Sushi Pop and know several of the staff members there now. They are all great and the food is excellent! We also love that they change their menu from time to time to keep things fresh and different.
    I highly suggest trying their pork tacos as an appetizer or for someone who doesn’t like sushi. Their meals are great. Yay for sushi pop!

          Girl! If you’re “totally poor” then you should be using your gift card to Hillstone to celebrate his new J-O-B! ;o) Par-tay!

    Hey Pearleen! I just went here tonight because I saw this blog post last week. Definitely an awesome choice. I can’t wait to go back! Hopefully next time I’ll save room for the PMS! :)

      Hey Jenni, good to hear from you! You definitely made a bad choice in not leaving enough room for dessert! It is like the best part! Gosh. I definitely had food envy.
