Located on Shaw and Clovis in Fresno is a small drive-thru Sushi joint called Fleurichi Express Sushi. This used to be a coffee drive thru back in the day. The owners have done a very nice job sprucing up the place.
I was given a gift card after my first daughter was born and just got around to using it. We ordered a few rolls to use up the voucher. A lot of the rolls there are crab based, which we all know that means imitation. But imitation crab is typical of most sushi joints in our area.
They actually make the rolls very quickly, even inviting me to pull around to the window that allows you to view the process. The owners are very nice. It pains me to say that the sushi needs help. Hopefully they will understand the critics and make adjustments. The rice and imitation crab was fine but the fish placed on top needed CPR. The salmon and the tuna was very mushy and in need of life support. Typically mushy fish means either old or more than likely frozen and thawed. Not only that but the tempura batter on the shrimp within the roll was very soggy and cold.
Unfortunately this pretty much ruins the experience. Despite the owners being very friendly and fast, I just couldn't get past the fish. That for a sushi joint is simply not a good.
