A Feast For Your Eyes and Taste Buds

There’s an old adage that says you eat first with your eyes. Nowadays, thanks to the social media-driven culture and the prevailing “if you didn’t take a photo, did it even happen” philosophy, the camera has also jumped ahead of your mouth and stomach in line. And since FOMO is a dish best served cold…and hot, here are a handful of Fresno foods and drinks ready for their close-up.


Sushi N Pop

You won’t need to fish for compliments (or comments) when you post about ordering from this Japanese restaurant near Fresno State. The folks at Sushi N Pop get extra creative with their fusion tapas menu, which includes appetizers like crazy avocado bombs and poke nachos.

Superstar Roll

This popular roll is “shrimply” the best—probably because it features shrimp tempura, crab, and cucumber on the inside, and rice and salmon, tuna, and avocado on the outside.

Spicy Tuna Nachos

This Mexican snack is reimagined as crispy wonton skins slathered with salsa, spicy mayo, and a scoop of sashimi-grade spicy tuna.

The list of restaurants highlighted in the story. Order delivery or grab pick-up from any of the places near you.
