The busy lives of college students often makes it hard to find the time to do anything, sometimes even eating. Most people don’t really think about sushi when it comes to getting a quick bite to eat, but there are some fast and affordable options around Cal State Fullerton that give students the option of having quality fast-service sushi. 

Here are four places close to campus that are perfect for a quick bite of sushi in between busy schedules. 

The Good Fish - 1956 N. Placentia Ave. 

The Good Fish in Fullerton is less than a 10 minute drive away from campus. It offers guests the option to build their own sushi bowls or burritos. Guests choose their base, proteins and add ons to create the sushi bowl or burrito they want.

If you can’t decide, there’s always the option of getting curated bowls or burritos that their menu offers. They also have rolls for guests to choose from if they want to go the traditional route. On top of the sushi options, they have a build your own ramen item, as well as bowls with cooked proteins.

One of the quickest and most affordable options that students can grab is Roll and Grill. It is located just five minutes away from campus and offers guests a variety of rolls and Japanese style bowls. There’s an option to call ahead and place an order to avoid having to wait in line.
