A favorite of those who like pretty food, Goshiki returns to the 2024 Festival of the Arts. This booth, located in the Japan pavilion, features one of the festival’s most Instagramable dishes: the Sushi Donut.
While donut is the name, that is only due to the shape – not the taste. And we are sad to say, although it is cute, the salmon, shrimp, tuna, cucumber, and rice dish left us underwhelmed.
Goshiki celebrates the “five colors” of Japanese cuisine. And although we didn’t LOVE much here, the colors of the dishes are gorgeous. Out of everything, our favorite was the Wagyu bun and although we aren’t huge Sake fans, the Sake in the cute box that they customize with your name is a nice touch.
Here are all the details:

Photos & Reviews
Steamed Bun filled with American Wagyu Beef served with Green Shiso Sauce.
Shannon: Nice size, good flavors, but slightly too salty.
Heather: Delicious beef flavor! Love it. There is a bit of a kick (maybe) but it is worth it!
Felicia: The bun is soft but the meat filling is oddly sweet. And not in a good way.
Donut-Shaped Sushi featuring Salmon, Tuna, Shrimp, Cucumber and Sesame Seeds over a decorated plate of Wasabi Aïoli, Sriracha Aïoli and Eel Sauce.
Shannon: Huge amount of sushi. Like the sauces on the plate. Very filling.
Felicia: Cute concept but relatively flavorless and nothing special. Tastes cheap.
Ichigo Mochi – Daifuku
Daifuku Mochi filled with Fresh Strawberry, Sweet Azuki Bean Paste and White Chocolate served with Strawberry Cream.
Shannon: Fun mix of textures, but sweetness is artificial tasting
Heather: I apologize but I have a texture thing with food and although the flavors have potential, the texture doesn’t work for me. It is gooey – which may be fun for some.
Felicia: The taste is okay but the texture is like uncooked dough that is very chewy and stretchy. Not a fan.
Murasaki Blueberry Drink
Sweet Blueberry and Cream (nonalcoholic).
Note: Also available with alcohol.
Shannon: Like the one with alcohol more as it cuts through some of the sweetness.
Heather: Probably a good option for kids. Strong blueberry flavor, but it is warm when it FEELS like it should be cold?
Felicia: Generally not my thing, but has a nice fruity but tea-like flavor. Not too sweet (but still sweet).
Mikan Orange IPA
This pale ale has a citrus twist.
Shannon: Liked the slight hint of Orange but fairly bland overall.
Heather: This is an IPA I can get behind! Very flavorful – lots of hops, but not in a bad way.
Felicia: Very strong and bitter orange flavor. Big IPA taste in not a good way.
Masu Sake in a Traditional Personalized Wooden Cup
The wooded cup (Masu) is traditionally used to drink sake out of in celebration.
Shannon: I’ve learned to like good sake, but this isn’t that. Fantastic presentation though.
Heather: Adorable presentation but I am just not a fan of sake. BUT – I like this sake better than the 2023 Food and Wine version!
Felicia: Not a sake fan and I don’t like this. But it’s cool they customize the wooden box with your name.
Nigori Sake with Sweet Blueberry, Cream and Yuzu.
Note: Also available without alcohol.
Shannon: Surprised how much I liked this. Very light blueberry taste. Portion is just really small.
Heather: Strong blueberry flavor, but I can taste zero sake?
Felicia: One time I like the version without alcohol better. Such a strong and sweet sake flavor.
