Combo plate

I do not know a single UCLA student, current or former, that did not have Gushi in his or her dining out rotation while living in Westwood, and who didn’t consider it a gift from the God(s). Basically a shack operating on the side of Tomodachi Sushi just off the corner of Gayley and Weyburn, it’s common to find the place full of eager, cheap students filling up on what I consider a bastardized Korean/Japanese fast food. I finally tried the place after basketball for the first time since my last quarter at UCLA a few weeks ago, and it is filling indeed. I remember my fat ass able to put away one of these combo plates with ease back in the day, but on this day, man did I struggle. Generous portions aside, the beef/chicken at Gushi is basically what you’d find at Asian BBQs in someone’s backyard, overcooked and drenched with plenty of sauce, which for some reason is never enough for the young, carnivorous diners. And you know what? It’s still not bad, despite my developing palate. Sometimes you just can’t escape your starving college student past.
