Kissam Sushi: A Review

Kissam sushi is now a thing and I can’t say there’s ever been a more exciting time to be alive. I have class in Wilson almost every day, but now instead of stopping by Food for Thought to pick up a croissant sandwich and an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, I can enjoy 8 pieces of spicy shrimp with a cup of Dr. Pepper… That’s right, just 8 pieces of sushi and Dr. Pepper. Kissam sushi stared out as a great idea but, it’s all just one big scam. The Kitchen has dozens of signs saying that sushi doesn’t come with any sides except a drink or a piece of fruit. So what Vanderbilt dining services is asking me to do is pick between getting a few pieces of sushi or a full meal with a delicious, huge cookie.  Don’t get me wrong, I love sushi just as much as the next Vandy girl but I sure as hell love a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, too.

That being said, I am a true Vandy girl and despite the greatness of a giant cookie, I still get that darn sushi practically every day. They have California rolls, Philly rolls, spicy tuna, spicy shrimp, spicy salmon, and vegetarian sushi rolls from 11-3pm on Monday to Friday. So if you’re into scams, albeit a tasty scam, then make sure to stop by The Kitchen in Kissam for lunch between classes.
