Kofusion will hold the grand opening of its Illini Union Food Court location Thursday, Aug. 25, at 10 a.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. A limited number of free sushi samples will be available during remarks from Illini Union Board President Sophie Ruiz-Gehrt, KoFusion owner Janet Bubin and Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and the Director of Auxiliary Services Lowa Mwilambwe.
A student survey conducted each of the past three years indicated that KoFusion was one of the top Asian options for dining in the Illini Union. The menu features the eatery’s popular dollar sushi, house rolls, sides and combos that include chicken curry and beef with broccoli. The Illini Union location marks the third in town for the popular restaurant.
KoFusion is located in the lower level of the Illini Union, at 1401 W. Green St. in Urbana. It is open Monday-Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and weekends from 11 a.m to 6 p.m.
